so-called "soft bipolar" seems to be the result of antidepressant side effects and failures. ADs help a lot of people, but they're not that great.

If you don't need an AP, don't take one. Seriously. Unless you're talking very low doses of cleaner meds, that's heavy artillery.

Anticonvulsants...I dunno. I like my Lamictal. It does slow you down a bit. Back in the day, people we'd now label "manic depressive" were often on barbiturates, meprobamate, benzos. These drugs are sedatives and anticonvulsants. Modern anticonvulsants help agitation, anxiety, hostility, (hypo)manic issues, etc., so they're just cleaned up sedatives for those of us who have mood issues.

Back in the day, Thorazine was common treatment for bipolar. Not much has changed....
