Bipolar disorder Treatments and drugs - Diseases and Conditions

The primary treatments for bipolar disorder include medications; individual, group or family psychological counseling (psychotherapy); or education and support.

Medications for bipolar disorder include:

Electroconvulsive therapy can be effective for people who have episodes of severe depression or feel suicidal or people who haven't seen improvements in their symptoms despite other treatment. With ECT, electrical currents are passed through your brain. Researchers don't fully understand how ECT works. But it's thought that the electric shock causes changes in brain chemistry that leads to improvements in your mood. ECT may be an option if you have mania or severe depression when you're pregnant and cannot take your regular medications.

Medications for Back Pain and Neck Pain - Spine-Health

Pain medications for the treatment of back pain, neck pain, and other symptoms associated with pain.

While there are many over-the-counter pain medications used to address back pain, the two most common types are acetaminophen (for example, brand name Tylenol) and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs (for example, brand name Advil). Because acetaminophen and NSAIDs work differently to address the pain, they may be taken at the same time. For example, a patient in severe pain may take the recommended dose of acetaminophen, and then two to three hours later take the recommended dose of ibuprofen, and repeat this pattern as appropriate.

There are multiple over-the-counter (non-prescription) and prescription medications that can be helpful in relieving pain and addressing related symptoms while an episode of back pain is getting better.
