This topic describes first clinical characteristics of paediatric bipolar disorder, focusing afterwards on the current evidence base for the efficacy of different strategies for the pharmacological management of bipolar disorder in children and adolescents, including antipsychotics, lithium, and mood stabilizers. Efficacy data of short-term treatment of manic and mixed episodes is reviewed, and the limited evidence for long-term strategies is pointed at. The need of balance between clinical efficacy and drug-derived adverse events is highlighted. Finally, strategies for measuring response and monitoring treatment efficacy as well as adverse events are described.
