72. Light Therapy for Bipolar Disorder: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Trial of Bright White versus Dim Red Light for Bipolar Depression

Patients with Bipolar Disorders (BD) have recurrent major depression, residual mood symptoms, and limited treatment options. We conducted a 6-week, double-blind, parallel, placebo-controlled trial to investigate the efficacy of midday bright light therapy for bipolar depression. The aims were to determine remission rates, depression severity, and the rate of mood polarity switch in patients randomized to 7000-lux bright white or 50-lux dim red light.
