Meds for BP

 

There are just heaps of medications used to treat bipolar disorder and so I've included this part of the website just to familiarise you with some of the most-often prescribed drugs. I've tried to include monographs, anecdotal reports on side-effects and some links to other research or reports on the various medications. Keep in mind that we are individuals and never so much so than when it comes to how our bodies react to certain drugs. This information is provided as nothing more than a general guide to what you might expect to be prescribed by a psychiatrist upon being diagnosed as having bipolar disorder in any of its many manifestations. If you know the generic name of a drug, or are from the USA, then check out the Federal Drug Administration site for excellent drug info.
