My sister's daughter was just diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder and put on Paxil. Is this a good medication for this? What do you think is the best medication?

Hi Catthee,

Did your niece's doctor discuss medications with her? If not, it may be a good idea to suggest she go back and discuss the various medications and why that particular one was chosen. It may help set everyone's mind at ease.

How is your niece doing on the meds?
