Hi Shelly, are you taking a mood stabilizer as well? If not taking any anti-depressant on its own without a stabilizer can make the manic side of Bipolar disorder even worse! This may explain why you are feeling a bit manic on them.

You mentioned this in another post some time ago. I would advise that you see your Pdoc or GP since it has been going on some time.

OH MY GOD why are you on this drug?



This is the drug that led to me having a serious psychotic/manic episode


Go to your docter, that drug tipped me over the edge. They didn't know I was bipolar until I was put on it..



P.S I am only speaking from personal experience, I'm not medically qualified or anything but the docter did say in hindsight it was the wrong drug for me

Hi Shelly have you spoken to your Doctor? It can be extremley dangerous to just stop taking a tablet I think you should seek some medical advice first.

Yeah I agree, this is the problem with forums you don't know what to believe. I have said some bad stuff about the drug but to suddenly stop taking it could have some effects too
