Mania in adolescents and prepubertal children can present a treatment challenge. Current pharmacotherapeutic approaches are based largely on successful strategies in adults and clinical experience and case reports in child and adolescent populations. There is very little systematic research on which to base well-informed clinical decisions. This article reviews the available literature and research combined with clinical experience to provide guidelines for the acute and maintenance management of children and adolescents with mania.
