Lithium is a mood stabilizer and commonly used to treat Bipolar Disorder.
Antidepressives can be used in depressive episodes.
Antipsychotics can be used in manic episodes (at least here).
Anticonvulsives are also used to treat it.

It's important to understand that it's not a curable disease, but treatable.

Pills are to help manage it. As far as I know there is no cure.

If you can cure it its not bi polar.

The definition is in part that it is not cure able only manageable.
