Adverse Effects of lithium
Rash or ↑ psoriasis
Tremor Reduce dose (Cp)+
CNS ( agitation, confusion) Reduce dose (Cp)
GI (nausea/vomiting, diarrhea) Reduce dose; try extended-release
or give levothyroxine
Polydipsia/polyuria Reduce dose, manage intake, and try
Teratogenicity Avoid during first trimester
Neuroleptics Li may potentiate EPS
Carbamazepine ↑ CNS toxicity
Neuromuscular blockers Li prolongs action
Furosemide Little effect
Amiloride Little effect
first mesure :lithium level and sodium /renal function
serum levels greater than 1.5 mEq/L,
:vomiting, diarrhea ,lethargy,
:coarse tremor, confusion, seizures, and coma and may even result in
> 4 mEq/L
1)start with lower doses
- 2)correct the dosing schedule if
is also used
agent if rash is observed.
Risk factors include
1-concurrent use of valproic acid,
3- too high a dose
4-too rapid a dose titration.
onset of rash i
s most often noted during the first
2–8 weeks of therapy
and may also present as a Stevens-Johnson syndrome rash.
Carbamazepine, oral contraceptives, primidone, phenobarbital, andphenytoin can also induce the metabolism of lamotrigine.
Acute Depressive Episode
Acute Manic Episode
How to manage ?
How to manage?
mood swings that range from the lows of depression to the highs of mania
Bipolar disorder mean :
DSM-IV define the manic episode as
A manic episode is characterized by at least
of an abnormal elevated mood. and:
decreased need for sleep
flight of ideas
increased hyperactivity or agitation, and
involvement in high-risk,
activities without regard to the consequences
Types of Bipolar Disorders
first :what is the goal ?
return to usual levels of psychosocial functioning.
• Rapidly control agitation, aggression, and impulsivity
Antidepressants should be tapered and discontinued if possible.
-If it a“breakthrough” episode optimize the medicationdose.
-Achieve a higher serum level (but still withinthe therapeutic range).
Choose an initial treatment
Short-term adjunctive treatment with a benzodiazepine maybe helpful.
These drugs help with agitation
antipsychotics have received approval for use in
mania or mixed episodes
except for clozapine
**Olanzapine and aripiprazole
have been approved for use in bipolar
*lithum OR valproate OR anti psychotis (the first choice)
*Carbamzebine (second choice)
*For mixed episodes, valproate may be preferred over lithium
what is the goal?
-Remission of the symptoms of major depression and return
the patient to usual levels of psychosocial functioning.
- Avoid precipitating a manic or hypomanic episode.
IF a breakthrough depressive episode while
on maintenance treatment, optimize the medication dosage
Choose an initial treatment
Antidepressant monotherapy is not recommended
keep in mind :
*in maintainance all mood stabilizers can be used .
acute : all except clozapine as mono therapy
maintainance: olanazpine and arpiprazole
2)depressive eisodes :
acute :Qeitapine as add on therapy
maintainance :olanzapine and arpiprazole as mono therapy
quetiapine as add on therapy
but add on therapy
