> Is it possible to get hypomania from just one antidepressant (nardil) and not any other antidepressants. I have panic disorder and depression and have failed all antidepressant but nardil, imipramine+low dose lithium and ECT. I also have failed lithium, depakote and lamictal monotherapy. My doctors say I just have severe anxiety and depression for which nardil is supposely the most effective medication for.

Do people with bipolar disorder get mania, hypomania to specific antidepressants or general to the entire group of them? More specifically, is it possible for me to get hypomania just from nardil and no other antidepressant?

Jumpy, I wouldn't get concerned excessively about it. Tell your doctor about the symptoms. Usually, the best indicator for hypomania/mania is *other* people's reaction to your behavior. At worst, you may need simply to add a little mood stabilizer to the Nardil.
