I was put on 60 mg and trazidone for sleep. Is it OK to take this without a mood stablizer or enhancer.
""Antidepressant drugs may be useful during the depressive phase provided the antidepressants are used with a mood stabilizer. Mood stabilizers are very important in people with bipolar disorder. Without a mood stabilizer, antidepressants may trigger mania in people with bipolar disorder. (Keep in mind that people with bipolar disorder II may be misdiagnosed with depression only because they do not experience full-fledged mania. If these patients take antidepressants without mood stabilizers, it can trigger a manic episode.)""
