I get a lot of questions about bipolar medications and, in this video, I answer them; including how they changed my life for the better. If you’re recently diagnosed, one of the biggest problems is finding the right medication for bipolar disorder that works specifically for you. Unfortunately, this can be extremely difficult and exhausting. After my diagnosis of bipolar 2, the first step was trying various medications to see what worked and what didn't. Unfortunately, the side effects of many of these bipolar medications can be severe, such as weight gain, extreme drowsiness, and other effects that hinder a person's ability to function. There was a point that the bipolar medications seemed to only increase my depressive and emotional behavior. I was incapable of communicating properly with those around me. Finally, I went to my doctors and demanded to find the right routine of medications. It took me around 5 years to find a steady regimen of medications that efficiently managed my bipolar disorder without dampening my personality and increasing my weight. I still experience highs and lows on medication, however, I have more control over it, whereas before my condition was in control of me. Hopefully, in the future, research will uncover new treatment methods with fewer side effects. Until then, do not lose hope and continue communicating with medical professionals seeking the right routine of bipolar medications for you. In the comments, I hope you'll share your experience with bipolar meds and, in what ways, have they helped you. ------- Hannah posts a new video every Monday morning on the HealthyPlace YouTube Channel.

This video is for educational purposes only. This video is intended to provide evidence based, scientific information about antidepressant drugs and not to argue for or against their use. Antidepressant medications can be an important tool in the arsenal for treating depression but do not come without the potential for significant side effects.

Video abstract of original research "Management of antipsychotic treatment discontinuation and interruptions using model-based simulations" published in the open access journal Clinical Pharmacology: Advances and Applications by Mahesh N Samtani, John J Sheehan, Dong-Jing Fu, et al. Background: Medication nonadherence is a well described and prevalent clinical occurrence in schizophrenia. These pharmacokinetic model-based simulations analyze predicted antipsychotic plasma concentrations in nonadherence and treatment interruption scenarios and with treatment reinitiation. Methods: Starting from steady state, pharmacokinetic model-based simulations of active moiety plasma concentrations of oral, immediate-release risperidone 3 mg/day, risperidone long-acting injection 37.5 mg/14 days, oral paliperidone extended-release 6 mg/day, and paliperidone palmitate 117 mg (75 mg equivalents)/28 days were assessed under three treatment discontinuation/interruption scenarios, ie, complete discontinuation, one week of interruption, and four weeks of interruption. In the treatment interruption scenarios, pharmacokinetic simulations were performed using medication-specific reinitiation strategies. Results: Following complete treatment discontinuation, plasma concentrations persisted longest with paliperidone palmitate, followed by risperidone long-acting injection, while oral formulations exhibited the most rapid decrease. One week of oral paliperidone or risperidone interruption resulted in near complete elimination from the systemic circulation within that timeframe, reflecting the rapid elimination rate of the active moiety. After 1 and 4 weeks of interruption, minimum plasma concentrations were higher with paliperidone palmitate than risperidone long-acting injection over the simulated period. Four weeks of treatment interruption followed by reinitiation resulted in plasma levels returning to predicted therapeutic levels within 1 week. Conclusion: Due to the long half-life of paliperidone palmitate (25--49 days), putative therapeutic plasma concentrations persisted longest in simulated cases of complete discontinuation or treatment interruption. These simulations may help clinicians better conceptualize the impact of antipsychotic nonadherence on plasma concentrations, and the impact of medication-specific reinitiation strategies after intermittent nonadherence.

This Video Learning Activity (VLA) reviews pharmacokinetic concepts related to how medicines act on the human body, as well as pharmacokinetic concepts that explore how the human body acts on medicines. Topics include: • An overview of pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) • The ADE (absorption, distribution and excretion) curve and the implications of the therapeutic range • A definition of bioavailability and its effects on medicine quality, brand substitution and the use of generic medications • How therapeutic medicine monitoring is used, how protein binding influences distribution, and how hepatic metabolic elimination and reabsorption occur • Methods of medicine elimination, including renal elimination, and factors that affect elimination and reabsorption • Multiple dose regimes, making reference to the definitions of peak and trough levels, loading dose and steady state • Pharmacogenomics (personalised medicine) and genetic variability in response to medicines • Pharmacokinetic medicine-medicine interactions This VLA will be of interest to all nurses and midwives, particularly RNs, medication-endorsed ENs and nurse practitioners working in a variety of specialities.
