Bipolar disorder is one of the most common and potentially devastating psychiatric illnesses. This essential text book provides clinicians with an extraordinarily well-balanced and comprehensive overview of rational and research-informed contemporary clinical practice in the assessment and medical management of patients with bipolar disorder. With the advent of a new generation of treatments, there is a resurgence of interest in the pharmacological treatment of bipolar disorders. In Bipolar Disorder, clinicians who are faced with making choices from a variety of treatments are instructed how to mold their practice around the long-term symptomatic and functional needs of their patients. With a focus on pharmacotherapy, the foundation of symptomatic treatment, Bipolar Disorder provides the most recent analysis of the data regarding efficacy and safety of medications along with practical guidelines with which treatment choices can be made.
