Bipolar II is a different illness from Bipolar I, but it’s in Bipolar I that most of the psychopharmacology research was undertaken. Dr. Kelly walks us through some of the nuances in applying that knowledge to Bipolar II, and shows us how to recognize the subtle traces of hypomania and mixed features that go along with Bipolar II depression.
