I have appreciated your replies. Sometimes I feel like I must have offended someone, too, but realize I don't write that often and am pretty foggy headed - can't keep track of threads, etc. You are just the opposite. It is a bit overwhelming to me try to answer too much.

It sounds like lamotrigene is a keeper for you. What to combine with it is something you have a better handle on than I do. Frankly, right now, I don't remember what all I have used it in combo with. There have been so many combos!

Have you gone to see one of the consultation experts? I like Steven Dubovsky at the U. of Colo., but haven't been cured yet by his miriad of novel ideas and combos. He is sharp and marchs to beat of a different drummer.
ADs in general seem to cause more problems for me than they address. If I can prevent hypomania, the mixed states and subsequent crashs tend not to follow. Selegiline is less activating for me. Even lamotrigene is suspect in some of the irritability I have experienced. Ziprasidone is on my waiting list of meds to try.
We'll decide what to do post ECT when I see my pDoc next week. Maintenance ECT is a possibility, with my main concern being ongoing cognitive side effects. My Hubby is part of those decisions, too, as he has to live with me. He has an exceptional grasp of bipolar disorder. He should receive a medal of honor. Of course I have to live with him too :).

Please hang in there!


Chris A.
