As has been suggested, you could certainly go for endocrinological tests to rule out other explanations for your experiences. I would at least go for thyroid and cortisol testing. I'll be very interested to know the other tests the doctor orders.
Hyperthyroidism can sensitize NE receptors.
The antidepressant-induced mania is, I believe, a sign of bipolarity.
Which of the maniagenic drugs would you choose to take, and why? (Wellbutrin versus TCA)
