Antidepressants were not superior to placebo and other medications in the short term, and long-term use of antidepressants did not achieve higher response and remission rates of bipolar disorder.
This corresponds to anecdotal evidence I've noticed with bipolar friends who take antidepressants.
Depression is a terrible disease, but antidepressant drugs don't help everyone.
