Rationale for the trial
This section provides an outline of the trial design. Information about the trial procedures and what the trial involves for participants and for psychiatrists is given in the Get Involved section.
Many people with bipolar disorder find that depressive symptoms are more disabling and more persistent than manic symptoms. Effective treatments are needed that:
- provide safe, tolerable and rapid reduction of depressive symptoms
- do not induce manic symptoms in the short- term
- maintain continued remission from depressive symptoms and freedom from manic symptoms in the longer-term
