Scott...you say you are bipolar. Im not bipolar. Its common knowledge that antidepressants oftentimes trigger mania and dysphoric feelings in bipolar people. When I am discussing atypical anti-psychotics on here dude, I am discussing them in reference to UNIPOLAR MAJOR DEPRESSION. Not to Bipolar manic depression or schizophrenia. I made that clear.

I never had an antidepressant that made me think about suicide more. Every one Ive tried made me think about suicide less. However, every atypical Ive taken in conjunction with an antidepressant made me more depressed, as well as caused acute EPS symptoms that were a major pain in the ass.

From now on, whenever you read my posts about atypicals, please remember I am discussing them in regards to UNIPOLAR depression, anxiety, using them for things like insomnia, etc.

Remember...bipolar and unipolar depression are two totally different things.
