Default Can I switch synthetic motor oil brands?

I have been using Mobil 1 fully-synthetic 5W-20 motor oil in my 2006 Honda Civic sedan since the first oil change. It's time for another oil change, but for months that specific brand is out of 5W-20 and will be for several more months apparently. Is it OK to switch to another brand (still fully-synthetic 5W-20)? (I only ask because I've heard that the additives in different brands can interact and cause sludge.)

Also, any brand recommendations? Thanks!!
