Yes, cycling is that up and down roller coaster of moods. I cannot take Wellbutrin because it causes some bad side effects, as well as the fact that it tips me into manic behavior of being so talkative that it drives everyone crazy and that doesn't really work well in public! As for Topamax, same deal with SE's and it, too, is one of the anti-seizure meds being touted as mood stabilizers which have that GABA neurotransmitter as its focus. I get particularly confused and forgetful on them, as well as sometimes bruising from nowhere and a bit of coordination problems. The only good thing about Wellbutrin is its effect on Dopamine, which seems to be the effect I need.....hence my current trial with Abilify. I really got a lot out of an above posting about the blocking of Dopamine by SSRI's.....always knew I had extreme trouble with SSRI's but didn't understand why. Being new to all this, Smilez, you are lucky to have access to this group of well-seasoned people; I had no idea about sites like this until about a year ago and didn't get up the courage to post until about two weeks ago.
