> 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?

Elaine, I'm curious about this: what does the "NOS" mean in your case? I know it stands for "not otherwise specified," I mean why did you receive this diagnosis instead of bipolar I or II.

(I had a single mixed episode and recurring major depression, but my dx is bipolar NOS rather than bipolar I because it wasn't clear whether the mixed episode was spontaneous, or whether it was an idiosyncratic reaction to an antidepressant. My assumption has been the latter.)
