Thank you, Thank you for your most informative and very compassionate post.

I have been on Effexor for 7 years and my current pdoc did not prescribe it for me. Perhaps this is why I have cycled in and out for all of these years. My second pdoc added on Lamictal but this caused anger. Now, I don't know if I was really angry at work at the time (could be), but I did not seem to have a working "censor" button so it was hypothesized that the lamictal and the clonipin could have created a situation where I was "disinhibited". The lamital was stopped and I went on my merry way on Effexor.

New pdoc and she listens to my symptoms of BPII and puts me on Abilfy low dose 5 mg. then 10 mg. daily and honestly I did not notice one bit of difference and continued to cycle. I had lowered my Effexor from 225 to 37.5 mg. daily and I was hitting a very depressive state and she said to up the Abilify to 15 mg. - one dose of 15 mg. and I thought I was going to end up in the ER with major, intense anxiety.

Right now, I self-medicating at Effexor 75 mg. and this seems to have killed the major depressive feelings, but I know I am just waiting to cycle again. It's not a matter of will it, but when will it.

I see my pdoc on Friday and will be discussing all the AED's with her. I am a little gun shy due to the Abilify - I could kick her in the shin for that one. Thank you again for all of your help and I will read Dr. Phelp's information.
