Abstract: The management of psychiatric disorders during pregnancy is complex, including clinical decisions which are difficult, and there is no sufficient data regarding this management in medical literature. Bipolar disorder occurs commonly in women during childbearing years, and there is high risk of recurrence during pregnancy and postpartum period. The authors review the existing data regarding the use of psychotropic agents in mania, and the impact on infant and childhood development. It is emphasized that nowadays the use of psychotropic medications during pregnancy is appropriate in many clinical situations, but no decision is risk-free. Moreover, a guideline is presented for psychotropic drug use during pregnancy and for bipolar women who wish to conceive.
