Drug therapy is a critical component of your treatment for bipolar disorder. Let's get educated about your medications, or the medications your loved one is taking, as knowledge is power. 

Why are My Bipolar Medications Important?

Your bipolar medications help you feel good and function well in your everyday life. Learning about the types of medications you are taking for your bipolar disorder, and how they work, may help you understand your symptoms better.

Remember, it's never a good idea to stop a medication or change the dose on your own — instead, talk it over with your doctor first to be safe. 

Also, never take a medication that belongs to someone else. This may seem obvious, but it can be tempting at times, especially if a friend is offering something that they insist will make you feel better. While a friend may have good intentions, they are not healthcare professionals, so be safe and make the smart decision.
