The Texas Implementation of Medication Algorithms
(TIMA) for the treatment of bipolar I disorder have been updated on the basis of the rapidly evolving
database of new, primarily pharmacologic treatments
for this potentially devastating illness. The revision of the
previous algorithms incorporates data from research studies,
published and unpublished, that have appeared since
the previous algorithms were developed in 2000.1
and panel members have constructed a thoughtful,
thorough scaffold upon which to hang treatment recommendations.
