Bipolar disorder (BD) is a lifelong mental health condition that is characterized by recurrent episodes of emotional manic or depressive symptoms. There are numerous traditional therapies used to treat acute mania and depressive episodes. Because of the complexities surrounding these treatment regimens, low treatment response, and adverse effects experienced with the medications, nonadherence is common amongst patients with BD. With nonadherence being such a substantial concern, pharmacists can play an integral role in ensuring that hesitations and expectations are addressed at the initiation of therapy to improve the patient’s understanding and attitude toward necessary medications. This activity will cover the challenges associated with BD, treatment strategies, recent treatment advancements, investigational therapies, and the impact pharmaceutical interventions can have on disease outcomes. With greater understanding of the clinical burden, stigma, and adherence barriers associated with BD, pharmacists will be equipped to help better serve and manage patients.
