Three types of medications are used to treat the different phases of bipolar disorder.
• Mood Stabilizers
• Antipsychotic Medication
Mood stabilizers are typically prescribed for people with feeling“high”talkativenessirritabilityaccelerated speech and other manic symptoms as well as depression that interfere with a person’s functioning. These medications commonly reduce the intensity of mood swings and usually restore the person to a more normal level of functioning.Lithium, depakote and carbamazepine are common medications in this group.They also are particularly important to help people prevent symptoms from coming back after they are controlled.
Antidepressants are prescribed for persons with the symptoms of depression. These may include feelings of sadness and depression as well as slowed sluggish behavior. These medications help the body regain its energy so that theperson has more interest in daily life. It is important to note that antidepressants may worsen manic symptoms and should be used after careful consultation with your doctor.
Antipsychotic medications are sometimes used for people with bipolar disorder who may have hallucinations or delusions. Hallucinations are perceptual experiences that are not actually occurring, such as hearing voices telling one to harm oneself. Delusions are fixed false beliefs about the self, such as “Everyone is out to get me.”Antipsychotic medications can be very helpful in these cases and your or your loved one’s doctor will have several to choose from, including newer medicines such as olanzapine, quietiapine, risperidol and ziprasidone. Decades of research has shown that medications are an important treatment intervention with good results. The range of medications available allows your doctor to select the type most suitable for your or your family member’s needs. When prescribing medication, doctors often think in terms of how the medication might affect different phases of the illness. The phases of bipolar disorder include an initial manic and/or depressed stage, known as the ACUTE PHASE. The next is the early and initial recovery stage, known as the CONTINUATION OR EARLY STABLE PHASE. The third is the maintenance stage, or PROPHYLACTIC PHASE. Medicines may be changed as the course of recovery continues. It is important to know that all medications have benefits, risks and potential side effects. It is equally important to know that there are also risks in NOT taking medications. You should discuss all of these issues carefully with your doctor.
Side effects will be discussed between you and your doctor. Individuals who are using these medications will be carefully monitored in order to minimize these effects. Sometimes, changing medications will eliminate some side effects. Elderly patients, pregnant patients and mothers who are nursing should take particular care in discussing side effects in detail with their doctors.
