From this study (4 years ago):
My daughter was diagnosed as Bipolar about 3 years ago. She has been on many medications. The list is her current cocktail. She seems to not be getting much relief or control over anything, for the most part. The biggest improvement was when she started lithium. Within 2 days, physical violence during agressive beahior stopped almost immediately. She can't focus on anything more than about 1-2 minutes. Never seems to have a quiet mind, which causes her grades to suffer, retension of learned materials, and the best way to desctibe it woul dbe short term memory loss, I think.

I was diagnosed Bipolar last year, and put on Lithium. I noticed the calming affects about an hour after my first dose. A few hours later, I couldn't keep my head up, sit still, focus, and by day 3 I was having major mood shifts, depression to the lowest of lows and wasn't able to remember what happened just mins. before hand. I was a zombie, and to this day suffer from only a weeks worth of taking the drug (including RA like symptoms).
Before putting chemicals in ones body that aren't natural, find out what may trigger a relaps. Starting with food, and what is in the foods we eat (MSG,BHT,SOY,Gluten) and hormone levels.
Bipolar is of unknown origin, it is a stigma for what isn't understood. When they can't figure out what is wrong physically, they just lable you mental. It isn't going to get better with out looking for missing pieces, on your own.
In fact, it'll just get worse.
Everyone is unique, and in my situation, they're now considering a pituitary gland tumor, along with some hard learned life lessons - PTSD
