Talk to doctor: You're also taking Brintellix, an antidepressant which can interact with Trazodone to boost serotonin in the brain. Meds and whatever you're calling a "manic episode" should be reviewed with prescribing doctor. Please don't make any changes on your own. Be sure to have regular appointments with prescriber or consider a psychiatrist. Your situation is complicated and requires careful monitoring.
