The primary objective is:
- To compare the efficacy of the association valproate-amisulpride (400 to 800 mg/day) to the association valproate-haloperidol (5 to 15 mg/day) in bipolar I patients suffering from a manic episode according to DSM IV TR (American Psychiatric Association [APA] 2000) and treated for a 3-month period.
The secondary objectives are:
- To evaluate the clinical and biological safety of the association valproate-amisulpride to the association valproate-haloperidol;
- To assess the patient status 3 weeks and 3 months after inclusion; and
- To assess patient satisfaction at 3 months.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

A dibenzothiazepine and ANTIPSYCHOTIC AGENT that targets the SEROTONIN 5-HT2 RECEPTOR; HISTAMINE H1 RECEPTOR, adrenergic alpha1 and alpha2 receptors, as well as the DOPAMINE D1 RECEPTOR and DOPAMINE D2 RECEPTOR. It is used in the treatment of SCHIZOPHRENIA; BIPOLAR DISORDER and DEPRESSIVE DISORDER.
An element in the alkali metals family. It has the atomic symbol Li, atomic number 3, and atomic weight 6.94. Salts of lithium are used in treating BIPOLAR DISORDER.
INTERNEURONS of the vertebrate RETINA containing two processes. They receive inputs from the RETINAL PHOTORECEPTOR CELLS and send outputs to the RETINAL GANGLION CELLS. The bipolar cells also make lateral connections in the retina with the RETINAL HORIZONTAL CELLS and with the AMACRINE CELLS.
