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?
