How is Bipolar Disorder Prevented?
The onset of bipolar disorder cannot be prevented, but early recognition of the signs of an episode can help the sufferer to manage the oncoming episode. Recognizing an episode at the earliest possible sign can allow for prompt medical intervention, and intervention, in turn, may prevent the episode from becoming more severe.
It is important for those diagnosed with bipolar disorder to seek a regular evaluation from their mental health providers and to adhere faithfully to any prescribed plan for medication. Treatment of bipolar disorder typically focuses on the prevention or mitigation of future manic or depressive episodes, and proper use of medication is instrumental in preventing episodes or lessening their severity.
