2. Prescription Medications

There are multiple pharmaceutical remedies available to combat the symptoms of bipolar disorder. Doctors may prescribe antidepressants, antipsychotics, mood stabilizers, or anti-anxiety medication to people with bipolar disorder. People with bipolar disorder often require prescription medication to manage their symptoms throughout the entirety of their lives. Although medication may be helpful in the management of bipolar symptoms, it is often necessary to combine it with other treatment options.
