Ask the Doctors...

Please note that a question/answer blog is not a substitute for good treatment.  If you have a concern about yourself or a family member, and especially if you or this family member has experienced a worsening of symptoms, please consult with your doctor and therapist.  The purpose of this blog is not to dispense treatment recommendations to specific individuals with bipolar disorder. Instead, it offers answers to general questions about treatment based on the clinical and research literature. The effectiveness of treatments will, of course, vary from person to person.
