I hate to disagree but I will. I think the drugs have a way of growing on you. For instance, my mother developed mania on sinequan after about 10 months. The dose was slowly increased from 10mg to about 200mg.

Basically, she kept responding to a particular dose for about two weeks, and then it pooped out (although there was term poop out at the time).

If she was in a study, she would not have been reported to show any signs of mania.

People might not blame the drug because they say that if she was to develop mania it would be right away. But she was not on such a high dose right away. Its just like with coffee. 1-3 coffee calms me down, 4 cofee I am a little jittery, but by 8-9 coffee I am in a state of panic.

So again, I don't believe that antidepressant induced mania is a clear indicator of bipolar disorder.

Also remember that the drug companies do a lot to excuse their drugs, and the weird things that may result from them.

For instance, according to Lilly, that non-depressed girl who killed herself after withdrawing from cymbalta, had nothing to do with the drug.
