- A Randomized, Controlled Trial of Inositol and Omega-3 Fatty Acids in Pediatric Mania
Children between the ages of 6-12 years old who have or display symptoms of bipolar disorder (explosiveness, mood swings, irritability, and/or violent behavior) are invited to participate in a 12-week research study to determine the effectiveness and safety of natural treatments (inositol and omega-3 fatty acids) for children with bipolar spectrum disorders. After undergoing a comprehensive evaluation by medical doctors with a specialty in this area, children who are found eligible to participate in this research study will be treated with either inositol, omega-3 fatty acids, or both in combination. Following the evaluation period, this research study requires 12 weekly visits in an effort to closely monitor each child's response to the medication. Eligible participants will receive study-related evaluations and weekly study visits with our study doctors at no cost. For more information, please call (617) 724-4644.
