Mood fluctuations while adjusting to new meds?

Posted by alchemy on June 4, 2013, at 22:30:13

I have always kind of cycled, sometimes every few days or even the same day. The only stabilizer that hasnt made me more depressed is lamictal, which I still take. I dont think it works as a stabilizer for me, but I think it has helped my previous agitation.
I know that antidepressants have the potential to worsen bipolar tendencies. I have recently started nortriptyline. There are days when I have thought that it might be helping, but then there are my usual down days. I started at a low dose of 10 mg and just recently moved up to 20mg. I am at least relieved that it hasnt worsened my mood (which is often the case).
Has anyone experienced an up and down period when starting a new med that eventually evened out?
