SSRIs can poop out and they can also cause manic symptoms as SadPanda mentioned. I need an anticonvulsant or I go straight to the moon. I've only tried Tegretol (precursor of Trileptal) and it stopped the manias dead in their tracks but didn't do much for the depressive lows. I've just started Lamictal and I am having some good results. Don't give up. So yes, perhaps Lamictal, perhaps Lithium and/or Depakote.

Oh and for the record, I also take Effexor and Wellbutrin...polypharmacy seems to really be the best way to treat BP.
