> Wow, interesting discussion! Do you guys think that a lot of people are being put on mood stabilizers (anitmanics) to treat what is really a side-effect of an SSRI (drug induced manic sx)? "Drug stacking"? IOW, do you think a lot of people are being misdiagnosed as bipolar due to a mania induction from serotonergic antidepressants? Is mania induction by serotonergics an *indicator* of bipolar illness or just a SIDE effect of the serotonergic?

There actually is a dx Bipolar III for drug induced mania. So yes, you'd be considered BP if you had a manic reaction from an AD. I am just curious as to whether a mood stabilizer is enough to counter the depression long term, which is my main problem anyway.
