Strategies for Shifting From Acute to Maintenance Treatment for Bipolar I Disorder
Updated treatment guidelines are available for maintenance therapy for bipolar I disorder. Using these guidelines can help clinicians make treatment decisions including pharmacotherapy and psychosocial interventions tailored to their patients’ individual characteristics. This CME activity describes the recommendations for first-line treatment and subsequent steps. Reasons why clinicians might not initiate maintenance with highest ranked first-line options are also provided.
