Diagnosing and treating bipolar disorder offers an array of challenges to the clinician. It is a multidimensional syndrome that can have numerous clinical presentations with a variety of symptom domains in the same individual. It can be difficult to diagnose and evidence shows that it can often be misdiagnosed. With that challenge, it is important to review the various aspects of bipolar disorder and the approaches to treatment, old and new. A review of the latest scientific data can guide us to make informed clinical decisions to make a difference in the quality of care for our bipolar patients.
