Not at present.

It's too poorly understood to be considered a neurological condition, and much for that reason, the treatment consists mostly of experimentation to find mood stabilising drugs. Compare that to Parkinson's disease where L-dopa is a safe bet (if it does not respond to L-dopa, it's probably not Parkinson's -- could be manganism for instance).

Also, there are often psychological factors involved in bipolar disorder.
