I don't suffer from Bipolar I suffer from straight forward depression/anxiety but I do know how it feels to feel suicidal. From what you have said you have tried it looks as though you have got so many other options ahead of you. There are lots of medications that you haven't even tried yet so at least look forward to trying them.

I can think of one particular (very clever and persistant) person on this site who has suffered with very resistant Bipolar (more on the depressive side) and yet he has found some relief with a combination of medications.

Also, as Phillipa says, your dose of Paxil (10mg) seems really low. I had to take at least 40mg to get a response all 20mg did was increase my anxiety and make me feel more suicidal. Some times all low doses do is give you the horrible side affects without the benefits. I know that as you have bipolar then you have to be careful but if the Paxil did send you into a manic state then I'm sure they could try adding a mood stabliser.

I personally think vitamins/herbs etc are a waste of time and money (for me anyway) but who knows they might help you.

Please don't give up hope.
