We are enrolling students, ages 10-17, with BIPOLAR I DISORDER in a clinical research study. This study will assess the safety and effectiveness of an investigational medication versus placebo (substance which contains no active medication) when added to conventional bipolar medications.

Participants in this study may be able to continue on their current bipolar medications.

Approximately 340 children and teens will participate in this study at approximately 46 research centers in the United States. Participation requires attending regular study visits, oftentimes weekly, at Stony Brook University's Child Psychiatry Outpatient Department, over a period of approximately one year.

Diagnosed with bipolar I disorder.
Currently on a stable regimen of bipolar medication(s), but still experiencing symptoms.
