I think this is what happened to me. My GP kept me on ADs for my depression and tried several that didn't work. Effexor was the only one that had any effect at all, but the depression was still there. She never thought anything about my mood swings that I had daily for no reason at all. When she finally tried Cymbalta in Nov. the hypomania started. I didn't know that was what it was. I thought it was just me starting to feel better. When I started going on ebay and started blowing money like crazy, she thought it was just me enjoying myself. I was always the type to use extra money on bills and didn't blow it on things we didn't have to have. The binge eating that I started she believed was due to the stress in my life. The eating and spending made me feel so good at the time. I was up and down several times a day. One minute I was feeling so elated, then the next I felt like killing myself, and the rest of the times it was just plan bad depression. It wasn't until I went to a real pdoc that I was diagnosed as bipolar 2. The pdocs that I have seen can not believe that I was never put on a mood stablizer before.
