Abstract

A positive history of lifetime suicide attempt was significantly associated with a worse course of bipolar I disorder. Effective treatment of depressive episodes, addressing non-adherence, substance use and sleep problems can reduce the suicide risk in such patients. Retrospective design of the study and recall bias are some of the limitations.
