Studies show Lithium more effective then Valporate for treating Bipolar Disorder

Two new studies have shown recently that Lithium is more effective than Valporate (Depakote) for treating Bipolar Disorder.

Nearly 4,000 Danish people that suffer from Bipolar Disorder were involved in the study, and it was found that individuals who were taking Lithium were admitted to the hospital less and switched/added medication less.

A researcher in the study said that this is because Lithium may be the better treatment for the depressive episodes of the disorder. One doctor from Columbia University stated that other doctors may not want to be shy about prescribing the medication as a  treatment. There were few differences in the number of suicide attempts among patients using Lithium and Valporate.

Many women who were prescribed Depakote while pregnant subsequently gave birth to children born with various birth defects. If your child was born with a defect and you took this medication while pregnant, you may be eligible for compensation.
