Options: There are other options for your bipolar 2 condition. Wellbutrin won't help anxiety, and may stimulate it in some. Topomax is not a particularly robust mood stabilizer, but does work for some (apparently not you?). Seroquel may help this, anxiety, and your sleep issues. Latuda (lurasidone) is another option. Hoping you're working with a psychiatrist as you try these various medications -- psychotherapy too!
