Thanks, Scott!!

I did give NAC a trial a few years ago and if anything it may have made me a bit flat. I wouldn't be beyond trying it again, but for some reason it was pulled completely from Amazon so it's more of a pain to order it (creature of habit).

Have you yourself tried Inositol? And do you have any thoughts about its potential to cause a manic switch?

There are some recent studies on pub med that have found elevated levels of inositol in certain areas of the brain during the manic phase. Also, lithium treatment has been found to reduce levels of inositol in the brain.

I know this stuff is never that easy, and a lot of the data suggests it could be very helpful in BP. I just can't afford to put my GF through another bad experience with me losing it.

I did sleep really well last night though, and woke up motivated to get on the computer and do things I enjoy. Anhedonia is a big part of my illness right now, so I'm optimistic that inositol might be able to help me.
