Ten previous reports have shown potential benefit of a micronutrient treatment consisting mainly of vitamins and minerals for various psychiatric symptoms, including mood and ADHD. This case study aimed to investigate the longer term impact of the micronutrients on both psychiatric and neurocognitive functioning in an off-on-off-on ABAB design with 1 year follow-up. A year-old female with bipolar II disorder, ADHD, social anxiety, and panic disorder entered an open-label trial using a nutritional treatment following a documented 8 year history of on-going psychiatric symptoms not well managed by medications. Blood test results remained normal after 8 weeks on the formula. She did not report any adverse side effects associated with the treatment. She then chose to come off the formula; after 8 weeks her depression scores returned to baseline, and anxiety and ADHD symptoms worsened.

Bipolar disorder or bipolar affective disorder historically known as manic-depressive disorder or manic depression is a psychiatric diagnosis for a mood disorder in which people experience disruptive mood swings. These encompass a frenzied state known as mania or hypomania usually alternated with symptoms of depression. Bipolar disorder is defined by the presence of one or more episodes of abnormally elevated energy levels, cognition, and mood with or without one or more depressive episodes. The disorder is a big problem for the person herself and for her family, because this mood interferes with the functions of ordinary life. Many people with bipolar disorder also experience periods of depressed mood, but this is not universal.
