> ...a non-SSRI anti-depressant with non-psychotic results? Or is the SSRI with a mood stabalizer a better option? I have yet to try Welbutrin. What's everyone's take on that one? I hear one of the side effects is weight loss :) and another is increased sex drive :) (definitely a blessing to those of us who have been on these "anti-libido" meds) ~Mel

I take Parnate and haven't had any mania problems with it. I don't require a mood stabilizer, apparently; it's only certain meds that cause me to "switch."

Wellbutrin made me really anxious (I have panic disorder as well as depression BTW), and I didn't tolerate TCAs (which may actually be even *worse* than SSRIs for causing manic reactions in susceptible folks). However, WB is supposed to be the best AD to try for bipolars who need an AD because it seems to cause fewer and milder manic/hypomanic reactions than other ADs do.
