>I am not 100% certain on this but if u have bipolar d/o, why wld any dr put u on an SSRI? I thought that cld make u feel much worse?. I will ask Nick about that one, he'll know. I take effexor xr and want to add wellbutrin but my dx is different. How long have u been taking these meds.? For BPD, that doesnt sound very common from people i know w/ that illness, even though the effexor and wellbutrin aren't in the specific SSRI category. I would search for as much info. urself re: BPD and see different meds.. If what u are on isnt working, tell ur doc but have some info gathered about other possibilities. I hope things work out and i will email Nick and have him reply tomorrow as he knows a LOT about BPD and other d/o's.
