I expect that a neuroleptic would be a better
choice than an anti-convulsant for hallucinations.
Something Risperdol.

To everyone else:

Prozac is virtually a stimulant now for me. My
bipolar is rather mild, but I seem to have every
known variation on the theme. I take Zoloft with
Depakote with good results, a high partial
response. The main side effect has been weight
gain and sedation, with the sedation having gone
away after a while.

Zoloft doesn't (yet) cause mania; let's hope it
is some time before it begins doing it.
