The word “bipolar” has become colloquially associated with anything that changes rapidly or is unpredictable: the weather, technology, sports teams, politics, or even a teenager’s attitude. But for roughly 46 million people worldwide, being “bipolar” is far more serious than typical unpredictability, mood swings, or temperamental behavior.

Older veterans have the highest number of lives lost to suicide, make up majority of the veteran population, and are highly likely to experience conditions (e.g., chronic pain, sleep disorders, musculoskeletal) associated with commonly prescribed medications that are potential markers for suicide risk (hereafter referred to as “high-risk” drug categories), including benzodiazepines, sedative-hypnotics, opioids, antidepressants, antipsychotics, and antiepileptics. The research presented in this session will highlight important patterns in high-risk drug prescribing and use and related outcomes in late life.
