  • Overview

    JC, a thirty year old male, suffers from bipolar disorder. Unlike many patients, JC spends more of his time in a depressed mood. He doesn't seem to present other symptoms like mania, hypomania or euthymia to as great an extent. The challenge of treating psychiatric conditions, like bipolar disorder, is that all mood disorders are not alike and each may require unique treatment considerations. The unique and complex nature of bipolar depression requires different treatment approaches than bipolar disorder or depression. Medications that work for one or the other may not be appropriate for bipolar depression. This program will review the FDA approved treatment options for bipolar depression (second generations antipsychotics (SGAs)) and identify the complex challenges associated with taking them (such as weight gain, hyperglycemia, and metabolic syndrome).
