Bipolar Disorder Medical Research Study

 

What is the goal of this research study?

Researchers at St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center in Boston are testing a medication that is currently used for other conditions to see if it is effective for bipolar depression. The main goal of the study is to see how the medication affects brain activity and chemicals in the brain.

 

What is involved?

You will take the study medication or an inactive pill (placebo) for 8 weeks in addition to your regular medication. You will have 3 MRI brain scans and testing of your memory and attention at McLean Hospital in Belmont. You will come for study visits every 1-2 weeks where you will meet with the doctor and answer questions.

 

What do participants receive?

You will receive the study medication at no charge. You will also be paid for the MRI visits.

 

You may qualify if you…

  • Are between the ages of 21 and 46
  • Have bipolar disorder
