I am borderline bipolar 2 I was taking some bipolar mood medication‘s but they were not working out so I was already on 10 mg of Celexa for anxiety which seem to help somewhat but I’m wondering if Celexa helps mood disorders and I’m not talking about mood disorder meaning depression and anxiety I’m talking about mood being borderline bipolar? I was diagnosed with a mood disorder has nothing to do with depression.
Celexa for mood/ bipolar?

No, I really don't think so because Bipolar ll is characterized by at least one episode of depression and at least one episode of hypomania. The problem with taking an antidepressant with Bipolar ll is that the potential is there to throw you into a full blown manic state.
This happened to me with both SSRI and SNRI antidepressants so I'm now taking the atypical bupropion but that's for the depression.
I hope this helps a bit.
