I was only on Effexor for 6 months, and it wasn't a good fit for me. Although many people have a good response to it, it made me feel really apprehensive and apathetic. But that was just me, and we are all different in how we respond to medication. I am now on Celexa, and will be adding Anafranil (a TCA) soon. I am not knowledgeable enough about ADs to make a suggestion about a new AD for you. What I would suggest, however, is that you start a new thread and ask others with bi-polar which AD has been the most effective for them. You will probably get a lot of useful suggestions which you can raise with your pdoc.

Good luck to you.

> How long have you been on effexor? I was on it two years ago before I was dxed as bipolar. it worked well for me at first and I even went a bit hypo, but then I crashed on about this time and then I had horrible withdrawal symptoms without even stopping the dose at all; all those things you hear about happened to me while I was on effexor. Even being, I would consider going on it again if it would lift this. It may be different since I'm on Trileptal as well.
