Does anyone have advice or can anyone share experiences about medications that have helped your depression? (While being diagnosed bipolar). I have had bipolar disorder for about 15 years, and have tried many different medications. It could be worse, but the combination I have is not treating my depression and response to stressful situations well. (I am taking wellbutrin, abilify, lamictal, and lithium). I have tried SSRI's 5 different times in the past and they have always made me incredibly anxious and/or manic, so I cannot take them. My doctor is aware of this and does not want me to try anything new for now. I usually get sad and anxious when I am alone for an extended period of time, or if a stressful situation comes up. I appreciate any help with this!
