I was diagnosed Bipolar I about 8 years ago when I was 23. I was always just depressed and anxious before that and never had mania. I only got diagnosed AFTER I took certain antidepressants (only SSRIs) such as: Lexapro, Zoloft, and Prozac. I would like to know if there is anyone out there who is defintely biploar and has experienced a real manic episode without ever having taken an antidepressant before. I am just wondering if these medications are what trigger my mania. Currently I"m taking mood stabilizers, but usually they make me depressed so I need to be careful with them and not take too much. I am doing ok for now but need to be careful because when stressful things happen, I get very depressed. Thank you for your help.
