I favor incorporating lithium or other antimanic agents in the regimens of patients with bipolar depression not primarily to guard against antidepressant-induced mania but more for pharmacodynamic synergy--complementary mechanisms of action that collectively may produce more substantial antidepressant effects--especially when the patient's illness course has included manic or hypomanic features in the preceding year.
