> Yeah, I'm surprised I'm not manic either but for me, I think it's just the SSRIs. I've talked to other bipolar folks that are also on other ADs. Supposedly Wellbutrin is one of the few that doesn't induce mania.

**For me; I"m one of the few that Wellbutrin DID induce some mania! (even combined w/ Triletpal). BTW, do you drink? I noticed when on WB and when I drank I got greedy for more and then I got out of control wild. I had an overall insatiable appetite. (not to be rude - but masterbation lasted forever and I swore I went into some sort of enlightened state). I don't have a boyfriend so it's all I had. In other words, I was hyppppersexual hyper-anything-pleasurable.

>>My problem with Wellbutrin is that I need the Effexor to make it work and the Wellbutrin to make the Effexor work...weird augmented relationship between the two. Or at least that's what I've guessed in the past. I don't like the Effexor because of the sexual side effects but hey, what can you do? Better that than cycling all over the place.

**Are you considered a rapid cycler? I am.

>I'm on a low dose of each so sides shouldn't be a problem but they still are. Once things even out with the Lamictal and I get where I need to be, I might ask to go off the Effexor. We'll see. I'm really much more of an anticonvulsant responder--so I'm learning anyway!

**What doses are you on? I need Paxil I think. I'm starting to fall into a deeper and deeper depression. Could be the time of the month;;but this feels scary like I could fall into a hole. My boss tonight at work said he's never seen me like I was tonight "lost". I said "I felt lost". HE told me to take some time if I needed to.

> Let me know how your appointment went.

**I've been so crazy busy - NO TIME - I missed the appt. and had to reschedule for next week.
> Where are you in the world, anyway...I'm in Toronto.
**San Francisco Bay area. (East Bay).
