Antidepressants are commonly used in bipolar disorder despite limited data to support their efficacy and substantive psychiatric tolerability concerns in this condition. Why do mental health professionals continue to prescribe these agents to treat bipolar? Are antidepressants ever appropriate for patients with this disorder? In this case-based session, Dr. Ketter will draw attention to the strengths and limitations of using antidepressants in bipolar disorder and demontrate how to distinguish bipolar disorder patients who are more likely to encounter problems with antidepressant use.

Session developed in collaboration with the International Bipolar Foundation.
