In fact, there are some new drugs that some studies have proven to be effective in treating bipolar disorder. Now let's have a look.
Here are the new medicines:
- Atypical antipsychotics. They are for schizophrenia treatment. But some studies have found that they also work for people with bipolar disorder. These drugs include Seroquel and Zyprexa.
- Substance P-blockers. These medications work by blocking a brain chemical known as substance P. A recent study found that the drug can work as effectively as SSRI and lead to less side effects.
But remember that all the above drugs haven't been approved by the FDA
for their use in bipolar disorder treatment. So, be really careful with them. Don't make decisions on your own.
