Are antidepressants a good treatment for bipolar type 1 mixed (moderate)?

Mood stabilzers : Miod stabilizers are the treatment of choice. Antidepressants are sometimes used in combination but there is very limited evidence for this (besides fluoxetine + olanzapine). Antidepressants alone could make mood symptoms and severity worse.
