I had already gotten off of SSRIs before the Mich. pdoc suggested bipolar spectrum as a dx. I was on nortriptyline and clonazepam already (and ritalin for ADD), so he added a mood stabilizer -- zyprexa at first. That combo worked wonderfully ... except that my triglycerides shot up over 900. Not good. So we switched to lamictal, which didn't work as well but did provide a lot of relief: I was pretty crippled at the time by some serious PTSD-related anxiety.

Fast forward a couple years (January of this one) and I have another "life event" that kicked my PTSD back into overdrive. My NYC pdoc added abilify and upped my lamictal dosage. Again, there was a noticeable improvement. Not as good as before January, but I've got a lot of recovery still left to do from that.
