I'm interested in hearing your opinions on the prescription of antipsychotics as first line treatment for bipolar depression & maintenance. I've heard countless stories of bipolar patients being prescribed APs over mood stabilisers, but the literature still seems to suggest that monotherapy with mood stabilisers should be the first point of call. Why do you think that antipsychotics are so popular despite evidence that they should only be prescribed after drugs like lithium and lamotrigine have failed?

Are there any preliminary findings from your psilocybin survey study you can share with us/ are there any plans for clinical trials for psilocybin or ketamine in treating bipolar?
