International Bipolar Foundation answeredThere are several benefits to participating in a clinical trial, particularly if the drug targets your specific symptoms. First, you have access to a drug that is not widely available. Second, while participating in the trial, it's most likely that you'll interact with several specialists, gaining access to multiple opinions and extensive experience. Finally, the drug may have fewer side effects than the one you're currently taking, as doctors continually work to eradicate these. Best of all, you get all this for free! The study organizers typically don't charge for medications, visits or tests.
