ABSTRACT

We reviewed the available literature on the efficacy of a novel anticonvulsant, Tiagabine (TGB), in the treatment of bipolar disorder. Study results indicate that TGB does not represent a valid option in acute mania due its required slow, progressive titration. More rapid titration schemes may lead to severe complications. TGB may be an option as an adjunct long-term treatment approach in refractory patients, but further studies are clearly needed to support this.
