> I'm not sure anxiety can be used to differentiate between bipolar and unipolar affective disorders.

I agree with you on that.

I feel very confused overall with this trend not saying its not correct it just requires a major paradigm shift. This information is interesting as I have several people who have informed me their diagnosis has changed to BP II after years of being diagnosed with unipolar depression with anxiety as a large component. Im not sure what to make of it it almost appears to me to be a misnomer and muddies some already muddy waters.

There is so much crossover use of psychoactive meds. Im not really sure what all this all means in the scheme of treatment. Most folks who present with what appears to be a unipolar depression with anxiety problem are going to receive a first line treatment with an AD and an antianxiety med .. I would think. It would only be after untoward effects or lack of response that other treatment options would be introduced still following the same protocol for change of the treatment plan.

Still leaves me confused.
