> Typically, ADs do not work very well or very long for Bipolar disorder. I have been dx'd bipolar (NOS) but also have dysthymia. Do you know if this type of medication is supposed to be effective for depression in bipolars, particularly acute depressions?

??ACUTE/TREATMENT REFRACTIVE/DISABLING?? If it continues beyond 6months and you're suicidal, DON'T WAIT ANY LONGER!!! Get ECT done (it's 90% effective). Don't end up DOA at the ER like I did, then, on life support for days!

After the ECT, my 18 months of chronically suicidal, totally disabling, treatment resistive, absolutely intolerably painful/anguishing bipolar depression was stopped DEAD in ITS tracks (instead of ME being dead)!
