    I am on lithium and risperadone, which I think are "mood stabilizers" but I have no info to give you. I haven't had any problems with taking them but can't tell if they're helping much or not as I haven't gone off them since I started taking them. So have nothing to compare to. I'm sorry I can't be of more help.

    as far as comparisons with ssri antidepressants, they are a whole different type of drug, I think, and act differently. Not an expert, just my opinion. I could be wrong. Best to ask your doctor.

    I dont have Manic depression and I dont know much about it.
    But i read somewhere that Pills for manic depression are much much more effective than anti depressants, i even read that anti depressants can make you more depressed (if you're bipolar), but im not shure.

    Wish you luck:hug:
