Hi Amy,

>> Are you taking generic prozac? Some say there is a difference between Prozac and generic fluoxetine. What is your experience

I'm taking a small amount of brand Prozac-I definitely noticed a difference way back when I tried a generic version.I know that some bipolar11's can get away with, and get results from a pinch of Prozac with Lamictal.Any AD carries a risk of inducing hypomania/cycling for us though, and MAY worsen the long term course of the illness.Tough call...

>> I might consider adding it to Lamictal down the road, who knows

Wait and see whether I go nuts or not first!!

>>Yesterday I bought some Enada NADH..

Yeah, this stuff's interesting..I'll watch you and Ron's progress with interest.

>> Here in N. Cali. we have spells of gray that last for about 5 or 6 days. I hate that color.

Here we get fleeting spells of sunlight that last about five or six days(per year!)That's what really pushes me towards hypomania(it happened recently) and slams in the depression.I don't look good in grey either..still,Spring's coming...

>> Have you considered a light box?
Colin, how often do you drink? From my experience, Lamictal and booze are a bad combo. Depression almost always follows the next day after more than half a glass.

I keep promising myself a lightbox, but with me I think the low barometric pressure is just as much at fault as the lack of sunlight-caves my head in after a few weeks.
And you're right, Lamictal and booze don't really mix- I don't drink often nowadays, and I've always suffered monster hangovers when I do;
Drank lots of Guiness over Christmas though, and didn't feel too bad overall.But it's definitely time to switch to shandy(what would you Americans call a glass of mostly lemonade with a small amount of beer??Probably something unprintable!!
