Once you remove all the anti-depressants you are stable in 8 weeks. Stable as in perfectly normal. Side-effects: nausea on the first day (not later), heightened sex drive (desirable) and priapism (not desirable), weight-loss (desirable) (I lost 6 pounds in 6 weeks) and I ate all I wanted. You see aripiprazole acts on pre-dopamine receptors too (I may be wrong, I read this on the internet), so it is such a good anti-depressant you don't feel like eating much in a single sitting, but eat continuously. Heightened energy. No lethargy.

You should take aripip in the morning because it causes sleeplessness if taken in the night. However, with aripip, the mania is gone so you can stop your sleep pills.

aripip is on clinical trials through bristol-myer squibb (call 1-800-555-1212 for the prescription number of bristol-myer for more information) or at Stanford (Intake number: 650-498-9111)

They'll tell you randomization in 6-16 weeks. Don't worry. Randomization will take away weight-loss and priapism and you can switch to lamictal then.

it is anti-depressants which cause mania, and mania causes depression. So anti-depressants cause depression.

And lithium is an anti-depressant (weak) and after 3 months on lithium for mania I got depression.

try aripip or lamictal or geodon without any EXTRA anti-depressants.
