SOUZA, Fábio Gomes de Matos e. Bipolar disorder treatment: euthymia. Rev. psiquiatr. clín. [online]. 2005, vol.32, suppl.1, pp.63-70. ISSN 1806-938X.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0101-60832005000700010.

Bipolar disorder is a complex disorder characterized by depression episodes, mania or hypomania and asymptomatic phases. The treatment aims at the control of acute episodes and prevention of new episodes. The pharmacological treatment was inaugurated with lithium. Until the moment, lithium remains as the treatment with more favorable evidences in the maintenance phase. Other treatments demonstrate efficacy in this phase, as valproate, carbamazepine and atypical antipsychotics. Of the atypical antipsychotics, the most studied in this phase of treatment is olanzapine. More prospective studies are necessary to confirm prophylactic action of new agents.

Palavras-chave : Bipolar disorder; maintenance; mood stabilizers.
