Perhaps it might be an idea to take a month off work to let the meds take effect. That said, if your job improves your mood, then perhaps not?

If you haven't had psychotic symptoms then you probably can continue working. When I was prescribed Risperidone at high doses I could barely function properly, that thing hinders thinking. I am now on sodium valproate and I had very few side effects from the beginnning, just some gastrointestinal problems that are gone since long.

Mood stabilizers are used in many different illnesses. It is used in depressed patients a lot as it can help lift their mood. Because you may go on mood stabilizers, it does not mean totally that you are Bipolar. Your Pdoc can give a proper assessment and diagnoses when you see him/her. Good luck.
