Not expensive: With health insurance, many of these meds are very inexpensive, espeically the older ones, which are still gold standards. Generic prozac, fluoxetine, can be had for under $15 for a months supply without insurance! lithium, depakote, and tegretol are great mood stabilizers, not very expensive.
