thanks for asking Scott.
i'm actually experiencing a VERY much awaited hypomanic phase right now.
started feeling happy and chipper this weekend sunday night had about 2 hours sleep, last night almost 4 but after the 2 i feel VERY rested today and bounces in my step these days.
i run around getting stuff done at work (but not scattered).
normally i have about two days of this and then it shoots dysphoric or bit psychosis to depression.
but i think i'm having reaction to a med. i just started taking clomid on friday. it helps ovulation, which effects estrogen i think and not sure what else.

i was on pristiq, zyprexa, adderall and xanax, but stopped the adderall and xanax when started TTC over month ago, and about two weeks ago stopped the zyprexa.
so my 'rebound' could be from being off the zprexa and pristiq effects too.

those are some good meds you mention.
-my best mix was zyprexa and wellbutrinXL,and ritalin but for some reason after my last pregnancy wellbutrin stopped working. when i went to get back on it, it never 'kicked in'.
-seroquel was the BEST sleep med i've ever been on but caused cognitive blunting about three weeks in. couldn't perform my job.
And i'm glad you mention Abilify. i hate the weight gain i got this last time from zyprexa so my doc and i have discussed giving abilify a try.
but since i'm now TTC, i'll wait and give it a try next go around.

i thought breifly about oxytocin, but to be honest i didn't know enough about it to know if it could be what helped me so much. i just kept thinking dopamine (because of relationship with prolactin)
but like i mentioned i just started the clomid on friday and saturday is about the time i noticed the 'boost'.

this is the kind of hypomanic phase i used to have (before meds).
at one time i was on zyprexa alone and did very well for several months. the only reason i changed was it was my GP that Rx and he suggested i see pdoc so i did and he switched me (he turned out to be a bad pdoc but that's another story)

sorry i prattled on.
