    Does anyone have any info on two different types of antidepressants for children with- mood disorder and family history of bipolar? Both DCs are on mood stabilizers as well as antidepressants. Older Difficult Child is on Zoloft and younger Difficult Child is on Wellbutrin. Psychiatrist for younger Difficult Child says there are some anti-anxiety, mood-stabilizing properties with- Wellbutrin, that are not there with- Zoloft. And that Zoloft may increase mania.

    Thank you.
