Bi Polar for 30 years. No episodes for 15 years. two years ago , new Dr. had me on Geodon as a support for Lamictal, but having side effects of muscle jerks, and no history of manic episodes in 15 years.Off Geodon for 6 weeks Always difficult to get sleep without early waking.
I don´t see a problem with Wellbutrin, I am bipolar and take in the A.M. but cymbalta is another AD (SSNRI), so you would be taking 2 anti-depressants and a mood stabilizer.
Well as you know ADs can cause manic episodes for people with our pathology, and taking 2 AD I believe is too much, there are other medications for anxiety, ask your Dr.
