SAD Lights shown to be effective treatment for bipolar depression

A recent study at Northwestern University has shown that Daily  mid day use of bright light therapy can effectively treat bipolar disorder. Importantly, the therapy did not exacerbate mania associated with the disorder. Past attempts to use bright light therapy each morning (the protocol for treating SAD) did induce mania. Though the reasons are unknown, using the light therapy at mid-day was effective without the side effect of producing mania. The study was published Oct. 3 in the American Journal of Psychiatry
