going back to bipolar medications

Posted by linkadge on October 10, 2010, at 18:29:52

ok, so I don't know if I am bipolar or not.

However, lately it seems that any kind of antidepressant just makes things worse --> ssris making anxiety worse, causing insomnia, TCAs just plain being intollerable etc. etc.

mood stabilizers like lithium and tegretol have been helping me more than other treatments lately. They seem to be able to produce a calming effect without inducing all forms of insanity that I get from antidepressants. Basically, I just want something that will help my brain shut/calm down without a kazillion week "waiting period" of worsened symptoms, and all manners of akathesia.

I guess the bottom line is that with antidepressants I just feel *much less* in control. I can't stand the feeling of being out of control. They are so unpredictable. Ritalin is predictable for me (just up and down --> not all around). Mood stabilizers are more predictable too.
