Bipolar disorder treatment: 5-steps to effective outcome

Treating bipolar disorder involves a combination of steps such as psychiatric intervention, medication, reflex therapy, etc. A holistic treatment schedule is always helpful in alleviating the suffering of the patieent. However, it is up to the individual patient to see to it that he or she dutifully follows the plan of action for treatment charted out by a professional psychiatrist and doctor for full recovery.

Routinely following a treatment schedule for the patient is always the most challenging of tasks. It is a battle on two fronts: internal and external, and puts his or her mental ability to slog through the most difficult initial phase of the treatment to test. There are certain disease symptoms which are beyond the control of a bipolar patient. Still, there are a few steps that make the difficult journey to recovery an easy one.

Prompt treatment

  • Often, various socio-psychological factors and prevailing ignorance about the bipolar disease act as a great deterrent to early treatment of the disease
  • In many instances it takes a longer time for even a patient to identify the mental illness and acknowledge the need for treatment
  • It has been now proved that absence of proper treatment only goes to aggravate the condition of a bipolar disorder patient
  • The more the delay in starting the treatment the more frequent and longer will be the manic episodes in patients

 

Medicine on time

  • There can be no two opinions about the need for regular intake of prescribed medicine
  • However, there are certain medicines that can be taken only under the supervision of a professional caregiver to avoid side-effects
  • Skipping medicines for fear of side-effects will only amount to inviting more trouble and suffering

Regular therapy good

  • Undergoing therapy form an important part of any treatment process meant to cure bipolar disorder
  • Experts points to the tendency among patients not to see a psychiatrist regularly once they feel that their condition has stabilised
  • It is imperative for a patient to continue regularly with therapies such as cognitive behavioural therapy and interpersonal therapy
  • Cognitive therapy helps patients follow a schedule in life besides understanding and interpreting events and thoughts
  • Interpersonal therapy helps in maintaining family interaction and having stable relationships and friendships

Watch out!

  • It is always good to watch out for the early signs of the onset of manic episode and know about the factors that set in motion the process
  • The factors that signal the start of manic episodes can vary from stress, social isolation, sleep deprivation to digression from the routine.
  • Especially, if you are about to start or do something for the first time in life such as enrolling for a college education, joining a new workplace or in worst case filing divorce papers, these can be the good enough factors to spark off episodes of depression or mania

Avoid alcohol, drugs

  • It has been found that in about 50 per cent of cases, bipolar disorder has a direct bearing on substance abuse
  • Psychiatrist and doctors responsible for the treatment of a patient with bipolar disorder find drugs and alcohol as main stumbling blocks to the recovery process
  • Both alcohol and drugs are known to disrupt sleep and cause mood swings
  • Alcohol and drugs also are the cause of poor cognitive functioning and reduce chances of complete recovery of mood changes
  • Hence, patients are advised to avoid drugs and alcohol for an effective outcome of the treatment
