For some time now I've been talking with a psychologist, had one visit to a psychiatrist, and have talked
to my MD several times. I've taken prozac, effexor, and imipramine, and xanax. I stopped the TCA and SSRI
due to side effects, etc. I have done some reading on bipolar and I believe that I have some traits of that.
The psychologist gave me the mMPI test and he says it doesn't indicate such. I've just now convinced my
MD that I have some of the traits. I take only xanax now. He gave me a book on bipolar and told me to
study it and if I wanted to try lithium to find out he would let me do that. I do have rather WIDE mood
swings but they are unpredictable in length. Does anyone that has taken lithium have any pro and con regarding
giving it a try to see if it does anything? I need some advice, please....thanks
