> Hi everyone. I was just recently diagnosed as cyclothymic, and I swear I have to be ADD also (although the clinician says all the ADD symptoms are part of cyclothymia). I just started taking wellbutrin 5 months ago and like some of you have noticed irratibility. Any advice you might have for a newbie would be greatly appreciated. Might I also add that its great to finally have people to talk to who have heard of this. So many ppl ask "whats that?" then i have to explain. Its quite a hassle. Thanks!

Hi,

Is the Wellbutrin the only med you are on? If it otherwise works ok you may need to add a little mood stabilizer and that should decrease irritability. Probably the most tolerable ones would be either a low-dose of Neurontin or Depakote. Certain "types" of ADD can benefit from "mood stabilizers" anyhow.
