Hi Scott,

Taylor's pdoc and her therapist haven't given me a definite answer as to whether or not she has bipolar disorder. Having her try Zoloft alone, may show that she either needs a mood stabilizer, or doesn't. That is my hope.

Being on 300mg Seroquel in the hospital, walking into walls, and feeling "zeroed-out" all the time might make anyone dislike the drug. I've also never seen mood swings in her until the meds were introduced. I've also never seen her in a "happy" manic state.

If I watch her closely, ask her how her mood swings are, and work with her therapist & pdoc, (seen weekly) I should know if mood stabilizers are called for or not.

Taylor really only wants the zoloft, and if I show her that I'm willing to let her try it and see how she feels, she may be more willing to try a mood stabilizer if it isn't working for her. (at this point, I'd taper off the 50mg seroquel she's taking)

Thank you!
Laura
