Medications Used for Bipolar Disorder and Addiction Treatment
Doctors may choose different prescriptions based on many individual factors. The type of bipolar disorder you have, co-occurring addictions, and potential side effects are a few that they may consider.
Often, mood stabilizers control the manic and depressive episodes that are common in bipolar disorder.
Lithium is one of the most common mood-stabilizing medications. Doctors may also choose an antipsychotic or an antidepressant.
Each one serves a different purpose and comes with the potential for different side effects.
