I have been taking wellbutrin after seven years of trying soutany mess and combos for my bipolar depression when I was diagnosed those 7 years ago. It has worked amazingly. I am happy as best as a bipolar depressive can get. My outlook is brighter and my intrusive thoughts are not as frequent and I seem to be able to cease them with yoga and self reflection. However, I feel lately I am about to go into a manic cycle. Does anyone else take this for bipolar and did it stop working or did you have to add something to help with mania?
