Appropriate Treatment Plan
A suitable treatment plan for the diagnosed mental health problems as proposed by Tan et al. is as follows:
Psychological Treatment: Informing the patient in detail about his condition may aid in getting his will and hence a rapid recovery may be expected. Patient should know about the onset and course of his illness and should be encouraged to comply with intake of medication, as well as with the life style and thought processes that he should be following have to be elaborated to the patient.
Interpersonal psychotherapy and cognitive therapy: Such treatments are known to reduce the symptoms of Bipolar Disorder.
Biological Treatment: Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT)
Medications: Certain recommended medication should be administered like:
a. Mood stabilizers: Lithium carbonate (requires regular monitoring)
b. Anticonvulsants (anti-seizure): divalproex sodium (Depakote)
c. Antipsychotics: olanzapine (Zyprexa), quetiapine, risperidone, or aripiprazole
