John-

I tried lithium some time ago- couldn't handle the side effects and it didn't seem to work well anyway. My main mood stabilizer now is Lamictal which is working out to be a very good med for me. The Neurontin balances well with it, for me- the Lamictal is an activating MS and has AD effects as well. The Neurontin is calming and gives me a sense of well-being. It also helps my fibromyalgia.

I began Nortriptyline as an AD and to help sleep (I had problems with the quality of my sleep, not being able to fall in to the deep level that is restorative). My current pdoc switched me to the Trim. and I sleep well and get less morning grog than with Nort. Since good sleep is important (probably the key) to treating fibromyalgia, it helps that too. I really can't tell how much AD effect I get off it- too many meds, and I've been on a TCA for so many years. Nort certainly wasn't enough of an AD for me, at least at the very low dose that I could handle (side effects).

I am BPII with much history of depression. I am doing well now- almost normal ups and downs, but still with a lower than normal tolerance for stress.
