I know the feeling, wishing sometimes to be manic again. Lithium is fantastic, but it is not an anti-depressant. It stops the cycling and the mania. The idea is when you don't cycle you don't dip into depression - or something like it. Works well for me, but I was (or am) always more on the manic side of things if left to my own devices. Talk to your doc about it. In addition check out psycheducation.org. You'll find great info about BP in general and also about treatment options.
