To endure the symptoms of depression is one thing but to have bipolar disorder at the same time could be even more daunting. I wonder how antidepressants would work in patients with both depression and bipolar disorder. Patients who may be bipolar suffer from both depressed and manic states, and antidepressants such as Zoloft may not bode well in those extremely high episodes. Feature articles at could be a good source of information for people concerned and interested.

I've been on Effexor from only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
