Pharmacological interventions in early bipolar disorder

Presentation First Author: 
Matthew J Taylor

Medications prescribed in early bipolar overlap with those commonly employed in early intervention for non-affective psychosis. This talk will review the latest evidence for the most widely employed pharmacological agents in early bipolar disorder including new analyses incorporating the latest data from randomised controlled trials. Of particular interest is the now clear evidence that agents differ substantially in their relative effects on depressive and manic episodes, and this should allow more rational choice of agents particularly for relapse prevention
