Yeah Ive tried lithium before for 3 weeks but it didn't give a noticable improvement. My uncle is Bipolar,, after Ive taken the Nortriptaline for a month might try augmenting Lamictal.

> By the way, there may be a reason why none of these antidepressants are working. You could be bipolar. A clue is the social anxiety disorder. In one study, 18 patients were successfully treated for social anxiety; however, 14 developed mania as a result of the treatment. There is a high correlation between the two conditions.
> Think back to your past and try to remember if there were ever periods of a day or two when you had a lot more energy. For example, you might have learned that a girl had a crush on you in high school, and you had an incredible amount of energy for a day or two and were very excited, until you couldn't get up the guts to approach her. At that point, you probably slid back into depression.
> Another clue is that you enjoy being asleep all the time. People with extremely low energy when depressed are more likely to be bipolar.
