Hey, C_e,

I take trintellix, and after two decades on and off AD's, imagine I'll be on them for life. I have bipolar ll. Right now I take ketamine at home, and it's amazing. If I'd had this as the first-line treatment, an AD might never have been necessary. That'll become an option for the younger generation. A study on depression and adolescents showed ketamine as the first treatment to be very promising.

Thanks for asking! I also take lamotrigine, and that works really well.
