In recent years, there have been
some remarkable advances in the
treatment of bipolar disorder and,
specifically, in the treatment of acute
mania, stated Terence A. Ketter, M.D.
Effective acute mania treatment is
particularly important because mania
causes many of the social and external
difficulties that patients with bipolar
disorder experience. The irritability,
impulsivity, risk taking, and
poor judgment that accompany manic
episodes often bring these patients
into conflict with work supervisors,
other authorities, and families causing
disruption and other problems in
the lives of both the patients and the
people around them. It is therefore
imperative to find treatments that will
successfully bring patients having
acute manic episodes to recovery.
