Treatment can help many people, including those with the most severe forms of bipolar disorder. An effective treatment plan usually includes a combination of medication and psychotherapy, also called “talk therapy.” Bipolar disorder is a lifelong illness. Episodes of mania and depression typically come back over time. Between episodes, many people with bipolar disorder are free of mood changes, but some people may have lingering symptoms.
Certain medications can help manage symptoms of bipolar disorder. Some people may need to try several different medications and work with their health care provider before finding medications that work best. Medications generally used to treat bipolar disorder include mood stabilizers and second-generation (“atypical”) antipsychotics.
People taking medication should: Talk with their health care provider to understand the risks and benefits of the medication. Tell their health care provider about any prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, or supplements they are already taking. Report any concerns about side effects to a health care provider right away. The health care provider may need to change the dose or try a different medication.
Avoid stopping a medication without talking to a health care provider first. Suddenly stopping a medication may lead to a “rebound” or worsening of bipolar disorder symptoms.
