• management of bipolar disorder
  • Lithium is the mainstay in the management of bipolar disorder but it has a narrow therapeutic range and typically requires monitoring Anticonvulsants, such as sodium valproate, carbamazepine or lamotrigine Antipsychotics, such as quetiapine, risperidone, olanzapine or aripiprazole Electroconvulsive therapy, a psychiatric treatment in which seizures are electrically induced in anesthetized patients for therapeutic effect Some antidepressants, like venlafaxine, have been found to precipitate a manic episode.

  • The mission of the society is to advance the treatment of all aspects of bipolar disorder, thereby improving patient outcomes and quality of life, through fostering international collaboration in education and research. (wikipedia.org)

  • medications
  • Diagnosed with bipolar disorder, she is careful to take her medications and to keep her depressive moods under control. (encyclopedia.com)
  • Although there was no significant difference in amygdala volume between individuals with bipolar disorder and controls, amygdala size in the group with bipolar disorder was positively correlated with treatment using mood stabilizer medications This is important to consider as mood stabilizers like lithium appear to have protective and growth-stimulating effects in multiple regions of the brain, including the amygdala.

  • NIMH
  • The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) estimates that about two million Americans over the age of eighteen have bipolar disorder and that the disorder costs the country about $15.5 billion every year. (encyclopedia.com)
  • medication
  • There's only 2 ways to treat BiPolar, medication and Therapy. (dailystrength.org)
  • BiPolar Disorder is a NeuroChemical Disorder of the Brain and it takes several different types of medication to correct what our brain does not do correctly. (dailystrength.org)
  • Since BiPolar is the combination of 2 mood disorder elements, the reality of 1 medication controlling both of them is as I said, very, very rare. (dailystrength.org)
  • Some natural remedies have been shown to work but none so far has a full effect as a mood stabilizer but as I've noted fish oil has been shown to have mood stabilization properties and the medication Lovaza which is an anti-cholesterol medication is in experimental use for bipolar. (medhelp.org)
  • Studies of bipolar disorder, particularly neuroimaging studies, are vulnerable to the confounding effects such as medication, comorbidity, and small sample size, leading to underpowered independent studies, and significant heterogeneity. (wikipedia.org)
  • psychotic
  • In bipolar disorder, the psychotic symptoms tend to reflect the person's extreme depressed or elated mood (mood congruence). (wikipedia.org)
  • For Bipolar I Disorder 296.40 Most Recent Episode Hypomanic and 296.4x Most Recent Episode Manic, the proposed revision includes the following specifiers: with Psychotic Features, with Mixed Features, with Catatonic Features, with Rapid Cycling, with Anxiety (mild to severe), with Suicide Risk Severity, with Seasonal Pattern, and with Postpartum Onset. (wikipedia.org)
  • diagnose
  • While reported and observed symptoms are a main way to diagnose either disorder, recent research studies are allowing psychiatrists to use magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans to try to find better, definite markers. (wikipedia.org)
  • There have also been proposed revisions to part B of the diagnostic criteria for a Hypomanic Episode, which is used to diagnose For Bipolar I Disorder 296.40, Most Recent Episode Hypomanic. (wikipedia.org)
  • major depressi
  • In light of associations between bipolar and circadian abnormalities(such as decreased need for sleep and increased sleep latency), polymorphisms in the CLOCK gene have been tested for association, although findings have been inconsistent, and one meta analysis has reported no association with either bipolar or major depressive disorder. (wikipedia.org)
  • the patient may or may not have history of major depressive disorder. (wikipedia.org)
  • Of all individuals initially diagnosed with major depressive disorder, between 40% and 50% will later be diagnosed with either BP-I or BP-II. (wikipedia.org)

  • pathways
  • Signaling pathways traditionally associated with bipolar disorder that have been supported by these studies include CRH signaling, cardiac β-adrenergic signaling, Phospholipase C signaling, glutamate receptor signaling, cardiac hypertrophy signaling, Wnt signaling, Notch signaling, and endothelin 1 signaling.
