We compared the relative influence of individual predictors of lifetime attempted suicide in 1465 adults with bipolar I and II disorder.
The most influential predictors were female sex, lifetime rapid cycling, nicotine dependence, increased episode severity over time, and bipolar (I vs. II) subtype.
Differences in the rank-ordering of RI for predictors of attempted suicide between BP-I and BP-II patients were modest.
Rapid cycling was a strong risk factor for attempted suicide, particularly in men with BP-I.
