Evidence that changes the way you practice Bipolar Disorder: Mania and depression explained

  • K Outhoff

Abstract

Bipolar Disorder (BD) is characterised by alternating discrete episodes of depression and mania.1 Rational pharmacotherapy necessitates an appreciation of these different phases and of the possible underlying pathophysiology. A greater understanding of the pathogenesis of BD has boosted awareness of how anti-bipolar drugs work, and vice versa.2 This bidirectional relationship has amplified knowledge in both disciplines.
