Abstract

Mixed states in the course of affective disorders are still a controversial topic among psychiatrists. Approaches to treatment of mixed episodes are constantly changing in parallel with changes in the whole concept of mood disorders and their classification. Even though international classifications of diseases like ICD-10 and DSM-5 are in widespread use, psychiatrists still tend to have difficulties with not only treating mixed states but also with their proper recognition. The following article is an attempt to familiarize the Reader with opinions from experts in the topic of affective disorders — concerning the definition of the concept of mixed states, their status in the continuum of mood disorders and associated with it pharmacotherapeutic implications.
