Use of quetiapine in bipolar disorder: a case series with prospective evaluation.


Quetiapine, a new atypical antipsychotic, was added to ongoing treatment of bipolar I outpatients (n=15) for symptoms of illness (mood lability, irritability, psychosis and/or difficulty sleeping). All evaluations were prospectively obtained, with the majority of patients (n=9) showing much or very much improvement on the Clinical Global Impression for Bipolar Disorder (CGI-BP). Somatic complaints were limited. Mean (SD) duration before changes in medication regimens was 134 (100) days. Studies of the use of quetiapine in maintenance treatment of bipolar disorder are warranted.
