Hi Maso, saw your own answer to your own question, had to read twice to see that you were actually asking a question. Anyway, besides the tegretal, lithium, halcion, benztropine, all of which have been around for awhile, there are some new mood altering drugs in the anti-depressant category that are helpful for bipolar symptomology. Since you do all your own research, I'm simply going to tell you that they are out there and depending on how extreme symptoms are, it is unknown whether these new drugs would be helpful for bipolar symptoms, it would all depend on the person taking them. I would imagine going from something like seroquel to an anti-depressant might be a stretch, but who knows, i've definitely seen some of the newer drugs advertised as being helpful for bipolar condition. BTW, i know Jimi's brother Leon, I won't say any more than that, but he could find his way to this site someday, you never know. I got the same msg. you did from FDA, good to know these things, isn't it? Have a great weekend. Dede
