Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My sister has bipolar disorder and she currently takes 3 mg of Cariprazine, I am seeking guidance on her overall mental health improvement. What are the signs of betterment we should look for with this medication? Apart from medication, what other support systems or therapies could contribute to her overall mental wellness and stability? Are there specific lifestyle adjustments or activities that she can do to promote her better mental health and stability? She behaves erratically. Sometimes, she is very sweet, and at other times, she acts like a maniac. We are concerned about her. Kindly guide us.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I read your query and understood your concern.

Cariprazine is used in bipolar conditions, aiding in mood improvement by elevating serotonin and dopamine neurotransmitters in the body. Individuals tend to be calmer with reduced anger and anxiety, demonstrating increased stability after taking this medication, these symptoms indicate improvement. Engaging in yoga and meditation can be very helpful. Playing sports or participating in physical exercises is also beneficial. Cognitive-behavioral therapy from a psychologist or psychiatrist can also provide assistance. I hope this has helped you. Kindly follow up if you have more doubts.

Thank you.
