> perhaps if you are a natural bipolar (not necessarily medication induced) you could take a mood stabilizer to keep turn the mania into euthymia, and then stay that way

Yeah, I may need to add a mood sabilizer, But Would I need one on parnate?

> .... hmmmm... how do you know if it's the other SSRIs making you feel tired/lazy or the depression itself?

Good question. I don't really know. I think I may have a combo of laziness/tired/not doing anything without the meds -but i mostly am realy jacked up when I'm med-free- (I'm already starting to feel that way again). I'm shaky, have tremors, jumping out of my skin, irritable, shallow breathing, racing and repeating thoughts, inability to concentrate, completely nervious and about ready to come unglued, restless, more . . .

Is gabapentin similar to neurontin or lamictal?

i don't know the difference between racing thoughts and mania... thought they were the same thing

Maybe they are- I don't know much about this, all I know is how I feel

Thanks!
