Wanted to add that it would be ideal to get up to a therapeutic dose on a mood stabilizer AND THEN add-on a stimulant or SSRI if needed. It seems like your mixed episodes may be triggered by starting multiple meds at the same time. If you could get a mood stabilizer on board first, perhaps this would prevent the feel good and then crash cycling pattern from occurring. Just a thought. You might even find that you do quite well on a mood stabilizer alone, especially if Trileptal has stimulant properties.
