Jamie, help me out on this one.
I had read that SSRI's like Zoloft can start manias in a certain percentage of Bipolar folks.
Then I heard that that the percentage who may be tipped over into maniar is VERY low IF the person is on an actual mood stabilizer. (Like lithium, Depakote, Tegretol, Trileptal, Neurontin, Lamicta, Topamax)
I even read that some doctors will purposely prescribe Zoloft or another SSRI to see if manic behavior happens as a way of diagnosing whether someone is bipolar or not.

AmericanDancer, I'm not familiar at all with PMDD but-
I keep going back to you mentioning that you've not had a serious depression. Ever?
There's just no way I can see how that could be diagnosed as Bipolar Disorder.
