I sure can relate! I was originally treated for my depression with Zoloft. Got the hypomanic symptoms from it but they seemed to subside as my dose was increased. Then once the Zoloft stopped working for me, I was started on Celexa. Got hypomanic on that too so am now in the process of weaning myself off of it. I am going very slow because the withdrawl symptoms are unbearable for me although the depression seems to be in check. (just more reason to think I may be bipolar - finishing a cycle I think) I like the hypomanic states also to a point. I am getting so much done around the house (which was severely neglected during my depression). But it scares me sometimes a little when I find myself jumping up and down in one place for no reason and stuff like that. I always wonder if I will go into a full-blown manic state sometime. I started a thread above titled "SSRI induced mania" which has a lot of info from others also along this same line. Where did you get your info on "kindling"? (I have never heard that term before. Sounds very appropriate.) I am doing some research for my next doctor's appointment and would love as much info as I can to talk this over with my doctor. I've got to think there are other anti-depressants out there that don't have this manic side effect but since everyone's chemistry is different, I guess it's just trial and error. (yuk) By the way, I love your term "medically awol". Made me giggle. I am "therapy awol" because I cannot find a therapist I like. My doc doesn't know this yet - he's been on vacation. Makes it seem a lot more fun to be "awol" instead of unable to click with a therapist. I wish you the best of luck in figuring this out. See you around. ~Mel
