Antipsychotics more effective than anticonvulsants when treating mania

A recent study shows that mania is better treated with antipsychotics rather than anticonsulsants, lithium and other mood stabilizers.

Researchers looked into clinical trials that were published from 1980 and 2010 and compared the most commonly used medications that are used to treat mania, a component of bipolar disorder that affects about 1percent of people.

The study showed that antipsychotics were much more effective at keeping the mania rating scales at an average level. When treating manic episodes, it is important to strive for long-term mood stability and few manic periods because depression is another dominant component of the disorder.
