MetadataShow full item record
Bipolar disorder (BD) is of a big concern to the world not only for the level of disability it can cause but also the increase of prevalence that has been observed in recent times. It is a kind of disease that often gets misdiagnosed and seldom reported in lower income countries due to the stigma it carries and lack of knowledge. The pathophysiology of BD is still unclear and a few effective treatment methods are available. The purpose of this review is to discuss the diagnosis and treatment methods currently available and mention some of the methods which have potential and should be further researched on.
