Hi all I have bipolar .. Iv been on lithium 4 years & a number of antidepressant. . The lithium has worked wonders with the high side of the illness but I suffer more on than off with severe depression. Iv tried all that is suited with lithium but none have suited me. Mirtazapine, venlafaxine, for the 2nd time, olanzapine & sirtraline for the 3rd time I get unbelievable side effects from them All. Iv now been given a small dose of risperidone to stop the suicidal thoughts .. the pdr wnt precribe prozac or citrolpram so there is anymore I can try. Feel like a lost cause thanks to te nature of the pdr. Iv been researching online & see wellbutrin has been prescribed to some.. I asked a year ago & there was no chance it would ever be licensed here they said (uk) it's an American drug. Il be most grateful for any input what so ever.. I so need to start living again.. not just an existence.. x
