Donna Hill Howes, RN, Administrator, answeredBipolar I disorder and bipolar II disorder are often treated using the same types of medications. They may be prescribed by a psychiatrist who, over time, may use several different medications and dosages to find the optimal way to treat your symptoms with few side effects. The medications used to treat both types of bipolar disorder include mood stabilizers, such as lithium or anti-seizure medications, and antidepressants to treat depressive episodes.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
