You can take mood stablizers. Mood stabilizers are medicines that treat and prevent highs (mania) and lows (depression). They also help to keep your moods from interfering with work, school, or your social life.Examples include:

Carbamazepine (Carbatrol, Epitol, Equetro, Tegretol)
Divalproex sodium (Depakote)
Lamotrigine (Lamictal)
Lithium
Valproic acid (Depakene)
Some of these drugs are known as anticonvulsants, including carbamazepine, lamotrigine, and valproic acid.

Not all of these drugs have the same effects, though. Some (such as lithium) are better at treating mania. Others (such as lamotrigine) may be more useful for depression.


Keep in mind that the term "mood stabilizer" can be misleading. If you take one, your mood can still change during the day. These medicines treat full episodes of mania or depression that last for several days or weeks at a time.

Other Mood-Stabilizing Medicines
Drugs called antipsychotic medications are also common in bipolar treatment plans. You can take them alone or with mood stabilizers to help with symptoms of mania. These drugs include:

Haloperidol (Haldol)
Loxapine (Loxitane) or loxapine inhaled (Adasuve)
Risperidone (Risperdal)

But the FDA has approved some medicines for bipolar depression, too:
