Klonopin (clonazepam) does have antimanic properties, although not necessarily effective against depression. Thus, it is not a true mood stabilizer. However, if you can prevent the mania, then one is less apt to plunge into a depression. Bipolar disorder often has an oscillatory course. Before Depakote (valproate) arrived, Klonopin was often combined with lithium. This combination worked against mania when lithium alone did not.
