> Well, I have been diagnosed for over five years now and I have been on depakote and welbutrine. I would not recomend the depakote if you are sensitive to weightgain as I am. Actually I am currently looking to find a new med to take also because of this side effect. The welbutrine helps with the depression part, but I am not sure what your doctor can mix that with besides depakote to make the manic phases calm down a bit. Hope that helps. Let me know if you hear of anything else also!

********************Well, just to update everyone...I'm still taking the lithium and am doing fine now. I started drinking a glass of citrucel every other day and that took care of the diarreah. I'm really happy that my doc didn't put me on an anti-convulsant. I really don't trust even the idea of taking something intended for seizure control.

The only drawback is that I'm back on the navane in the PM which kind of makes me nervous, considering the potential side effects with prolonged use. Oh, well, I guess it keeps me pretty stable, so I'll go with it for now.

thanks everybody, for the suggestions.
