The reason things like mood stabilizers, magnesium, omega3 etc. are appealing (to me) is because some of the mounting evidence that recurrent mood disorders are more than just disorders involving neurotransmitters.

With first episode disorders, perhaps there is enough neuronal integrety that a simple neurotransmitter boost is able to get things going.

For me now, SSRI's just produce the opposite effect to what they once did (massive excitory effect rather than inhibitory). Mind you, citalopram worked for about a year and a half with no major problems.

The anticonvulsants, benzos, mangesium and lithium seem like the only things that can help tame down the anxiety and hyperemotional moods.
