Abstract

Despite the prevalence and morbidity of bipolar depression, few randomized treatment trials have been conducted to assess clinical efficacy. Even fewer studies have assessed approaches that optimize treatment response for bipolar depression. This review will define three types of common combination strategies-adjunctive, acceleration and augmentation-and discuss the limited literature of controlled studies reported on acceleration and augmentation approaches.
