Why do you think you have BPII and not major depression with anxiety/agitation? I thought at least some mania was the hallmark of BP diagnosis. Is your brand of mania more the dysphoric mania type?

I'm not familiar with Seroquel. It's one of the few meds I haven't tried. I'm interested in your med history and why Seroquel seemed a good choice for you. I've typically not responded to most of my meds after a while but now that I've been 'upgraded' from clinical depression to BPII with the resulting adding of mood stabilizers, I'm hoping things will hold better. You mention you're on Klonopin. I've just recently switched from generic Klonopin to generic Ativan and I think I prefer it. It seems to chill me out better than clonazapam.

Is Seroquel supposed to help physical pain? I'll be very interested if it helps yours. I get pretty desperate when I'm floored with that whole body ache. I never know anymore what is somatic symptoms from depression and what is the fibromyalgia, or if they're one and the same. Hmmmm, all this is seeming to me very much like a viral agent is at work. I'm familiar with the Borna virus theory and wouldn't be surprised if others are implicated as well.
