How to find true cocktail?(Bipolar II&ADHD-C)

I have been experiencing mixed episode for a month, i think i am getting rid of it since i started anti-psychotic&mood stabilizer therapahy

I am currently on 300mg Seroquel(Quetiapine) + 500mg x2 Depakine ( sodium valproate)
I will have some blood test on my next appointment then we will consider increasing dose of Depakine

I stopped using my ADHD med, concerta&ritaline(methylphenidate) for safety but my doctor told me that i will be able to use it after a month

So my next problem is, which anti-depressant should i use? Should it be SSRI/SNRI? TCAs or atypical anti-depressant (like bupropion) would be dangerous ( triggering hypomania)

Or should i stay away from anti-depressants, do i have enough risk because that i will add a stimulant to my cocktail soon
so stimulant&anti-depressant would be dangerous enough to trigger a hypomanic episode?

Seroquel 300mg checked
Depakine >= 500mgx2 checked
Stimulant Methylphenidate IR&XR checked

Anti-depressants : what is in my mind? Lustral(Sertraline),Prozac(Fluoexetine),Venlafaxin e or Duloxetine...?

Any suggestions?
