A patient with a major cardiovascular comorbidity is referred for consultation with a history of late-onset bipolar II disorder of two years of evolution. Despite receiving duloxetine and valproic acid for the treatment of bipolar disorder, the patient continues to present with hypomanic and depressive episodes, alternating approximately every 15 days, with a significant decline in quality of life and overall functionality. Given this pattern, alternative therapies were suggested on the basis of evidence from observational studies and could improve the patient's functionality and symptoms.
