Pharmacotherapy of Bipolar Depressive Spectrum Disorders

One of the most important needs in treating bipolar disorder is a proper diagnosis, where screening tools such as the Rapid Mood Screener can help. Second-generation antipsychotics have the most data in mixed features, and only lumateperone and quetiapine have proven efficacy data in bipolar II depression. Antidepressants may be safe and effective in certain patients, particularly those with bipolar II. Rapid-acting antidepressants such as ketamine are currently being studied.
