The term, "mixed-state", is usually reserved for descriptive use in bipolar disorder. An episode can resemble an agitated and hostile depression or a high-energy, but dysphoric mania. It is an uncomfortable state to be in. It is not fun. It is not euphoric. People in mixed-states often display episodes of hostility and rage.

I guess the bottom line is that a mixed-state presents with a cluster of symptoms fitting the criteria for both depression and mania. This is a single state, not an oscillation between two states.
