Many of the SSRI's make me agitated and restless too. I can't touch Prozac! Zoloft if one of the "activating" (instead of "sedating") SSRI's and can cause agitation/restlessness/mania. A mood stabilizer kind of puts a ceiling on how high your mood can go, and also how low it can go. Ideally, they put you right in the middle and leave your emotions intact. However my experience has been that alot of the mood stabilizers leave you feeling flat/blah/emotionless and like a zombie. I have found Lamictal to have the least of these side effects. In fact I don't get any of them at all with Lamictal. Have you been properly diagnosed? If you haven't you really should be, because the medication for Bipolar and Depression are very different.
