> Lithium and Lamictal work well for me. The only other mood stabilizer is neurontin which doesn't seem to do much. I've been intrigued by Depakote because of it's rep as being very calming and mellow and good for anxious states. But the weight thing has kept me away. I've been on every one of the SSRI and SNRI's. They'd work for awhile but then the godawful mixed states black depressions would always break through. So up we'd go with the dosage with no relief. I was also getting twitchy, like little discharges were firing, like those jerks before you fall asleep. If you suspect yourself bipolar, be very cautious with ADs and do not take them alone.
And by the way, I no longer have a profession. Fibromyalgia put an end to burning myself out doing a job that 'just wasn't me' - whoever that is.

Do you think that the fibromyalgia is connected to or as a result of your BP state (mainly the depressed side) and/or the medications?
as far as depakote, I do need some calming agent, but not so much that I get into a lethargic inertia low grade depression. I'm worried about that aspect. Like I don't want just the "manic" side taken away. But I need the depression addressed too. Hopefully depakote will do this.??? I"m just at my end and exhausted and can't go through another year of trying different meds to no avail.....I need to get it right soon. No more steam left....
