I'm sorry to hear about your circumstance. I too am Bipolar II and currently on Lamictal, Depakote, and Prozac. I was on Celexa for about 6 months but discontinued because I became too fatigued. I was on 20 mgs. and I am a 130lb. female so 30 mgs. does seem on the low side for you. As I recall, you can safely go to 40 mgs. of Celexa. Perhaps, your Pdoc could prescribe a low dose benzodiazepene to use on an as needed basis. Also, Neurontin, which is an anti-seizure medication is also very calming. I was on that a few months ago at 100 mgs. 3 x day to quell some agitation I was having. Just some suggestions. Good Luck to you.
