It's been documented: Antidepressants are categorized as either ssri's, or snri's (at least the ones you listed). There have been documented cases of patients taking snri's and experiencing manic and hypo manic symptoms. These drugs are prescribed "off label" for a multitude of uses. If you are experiencing any unusual symptoms (mania, insomnia, etc)i would recommend you speak to your pharmacist and call your pcp asap.
