I remember once reading a naturopathic book about bipolar, and it had quite a few suggestions and recommendations for supplements (calcium and magnesium was one). I'd suggest getting a book like this. Sorry, I can't remember the name of the book I read. Maybe ask a naturopath or check out a health food store.

A friend of mine who has bipolar disorder is playing around with chromium picolinate. Do you know anything about it?
