> bleauberry, I'm not sure about your short list for everyone, but I'm sure those drugs work for many people. Aside from that, I would think lithium would make any short list?

Hi Dave. Well, let my clarify. The short list was pretty much based on the meds I have seen here the last 10 years that have a high probability of success and a low probability of failure. Nothing scientific. Most other common meds do not seem to fit that profile as consistently.

From what I've seen with Lithium, it seems to often be good as monotherapy for pure mania, though its side effects and dangers have led to other meds instead. For depression, as far as I have seen, it is basically useless except in cases where it is added a primarily noreadrenergic medication. Lithium seems somehow serotonergic, which could possibly balance out other meds, but not much another serotonin med. ??? Just some observations. Nothing scientific.
