Hi Barbaracat!

>Started out with Prozac after having taken some TCA's and trazodone...

How did trazodone affect you? Which TCAs did you try? Did they induce manic/mixed states?

>'depressive disorder'

When did you eventually get diagnosed with bipolar disorder?

>Don't know if it's out in the UK yet, as it's very new here, although sometimes you get them first.

We got it several months after you did. Here, duloxetine is marketed as Cymbalta for depression and as Yentreve for stress incontinence. I guess they don't want the people with stress incontinence to know they're taking a psych drug!!!

>I believe I mentioned the bizarre psychedelic effects I got with 30mg.

Yes, you mentioned the LSD-like effects!

>So far, this is the best AD I've been on. Effective lifting of a severe depression, doesn't cause mania, no sx (not at this dose at least) - and talk about cost effective! One capsule has lasted over 2 weeks.

I think it's great that you're doing so well :-)

I was worried about you reducing the lithium because you seem so healthy at the moment :-)

Kind regards,
Ed.
