ER: Please head to the nearest emergency room immediately for an evaluation if you are suicidal. Call 911 or a family member to take you; do not drive yourself. Good health.

Can't say: Mixed? Manic? Depressed? Not enough info to know. Regarding which atypical to use - you won't really know until you have seen response to both. Abilify (aripiprazole) is now used to augment other meds for depression.
