There is no fix for bipolar disorder.
Start with Lithium.

Lithium, per se, has several negative side effects. I've seen them at work but not with bipolar treatment. Friend of mine had epilepsy (resulted from removal of a tumor from his brain). Lithium compounds of all sorts are useful to a degree in treating anything having to do with certain brain processes.
So he was doing fine and one day showed up with immense red welts from his toes to his waist.
They didn't go away and got redder and weltier and more and more painful.
This is why the search continues for more powerful and less harmful drugs to treat epilepsy AND bipolar disorder.
