Mood Disorders


Translating Receptor Pharmacology to Advance the Management of Bipolar Depression

Saturday, October 27
2:45 PM - 4:00 PM
Location: Tangerine WF2

Bipolar depression has been established as an especially pervasive and debilitating symptom of bipolar disorder but is less well-recognized in practice than mania and poorly managed by most of the approved antipsychotic medications that are the hallmark of bipolar disorder pharmacotherapy. In this session, Dr. Maletic will discuss current clinical challenges in the management of bipolar depression and assess the mechanisms of action, efficacy, and safety of available and emerging pharmacotherapies for the treatment of bipolar depression.

Supported by an educational grant from Allergan.
