Bipolar Disorder – Current Treatment – Detailed, Expanded Analysis: Treatment Algorithms: Claims Data Analysis (US)

Bipolar disorder (BPD) is a chronic illness characterized by recurrent episodes of aberrant mood; patients may exhibit manic, depressive, or mixed symptoms between periods of stable mood. Treatment for BPD is highly individualized owing to variations in patients’ symptom profiles and drug responses. Antiepileptic drugs such as the staple BPD treatment lamotrigine, atypical antipsychotics such as quetiapine and aripiprazole, antidepressants such as sertraline, and other agents may be prescribed alone or as combination therapy to address the condition. The BPD market is highly genericized and price-conscious, posing a challenge for newer branded agents entering the market. Our Treatment Algorithms Claims Data Analysis provides national patient-level claims data to explore the use of key therapies in both newly diagnosed and recently treated patients, providing insight into the current treatment landscape for BPD.
