well, after my expanation, i was more looking for for possibilities of what i may have at this point. If you can answer this, i'd be more than happy to give you a positive feedback. It's not easy for me to be direct especially since i'm not on my medication. It's 230 am, so i really don't take my meds, unless i have super-insomnia during the school year

<p>Hello,and forgive me for butting in, but if you have cyclothymia, you need a mood stabilizer, not an SSRI. The SSRI will tend to cause a manic state, or anxiety. Ask your doctor for a mood stabilizer.</p>
