Today's episode is about treatment strategies for postpartum bipolar disorder and psychosis. Here are some questions we cover in this episode:

  • What is the role for lithium in postpartum psychosis?
  • What do we know about mood stabilizers and breastfeeding?
  • Is it possible for women who are using lithium to breastfeed in a safe manner?
  • If your patient is already on a mood stabilizer, should she switch medications specifically for breastfeeding?
