Bipolar Disorder
  • Bipolar disorder, formerly called manic
    depression, is a mental health condition that
    causes extreme mood swings that include emotional
    highs (mania or hypomania) and lows (depression).
  • When you become depressed, you may feel sad or
    hopeless and lose interest or pleasure in most
    activities. When your mood shifts to mania or
    hypomania (less extreme than mania), you may feel
    euphoric, full of energy or unusually irritable.
    These mood swings can affect sleep, energy,
    activity, judgment, behavior and the ability to
    think clearly.
  • Episodes of mood swings may occur rarely or
    multiple times a year. While most people will
    experience some emotional symptoms between
    episodes, some may not experience any.

  • Bipolar disorder appears to result from a
    combination of factors.
  • Genetic factors Bipolar disorder is more common
    in those who have a family member with the
    condition. A number of genetic features may be
  • Biological traits Research suggests that
    imbalances in neurotransmitters or hormones that
    affect the brain may play a role.
  • Environmental factors Life events, such as
    abuse, mental stress, a significant loss, or
    another traumatic event, may trigger an initial
    episode in a susceptible person.

Signs Symptoms
  • People having a manic episode may
  • Feel very up, high, elated, or irritable or
  • Feel jumpy or wired
  • Have a decreased need for sleep
  • Have a loss of appetite
  • Talk very fast about a lot of different things
  • Feel like their thoughts are racing
  • Think they can do a lot of things at once
  • Do risky things that show poor judgment, such as
    eat and drink excessively, spend or give away a
    lot of money, or have reckless sex
  • Feel like they are unusually important, talented,
    or powerful

Signs Symptoms
  • People having a depressive  episode may
  • Feel very sad, down, empty, worried, or
  • Feel slowed down or restless
  • Have trouble falling asleep, wake up too early,
    or sleep too much
  • Experience increased appetite and weight gain
  • Talk very slowly, feel like they have nothing to
    say, forget a lot
  • Have trouble concentrating or making decisions
  • Feel unable to do even simple things
  • Have little interest in almost all activities, a
    decreased or absent sex drive, or an inability to
    experience pleasure (anhedonia)
  • Feel hopeless or worthless, think about death or

  • If you've been diagnosed with bipolar disorder,
    some strategies can help prevent minor symptoms
    from becoming full-blown episodes of mania or
  • Pay attention to warning signs. Addressing
    symptoms early on can prevent episodes from
    getting worse. You may have identified a pattern
    to your bipolar episodes and what triggers them.
    Call your doctor if you feel you're falling into
    an episode of depression or mania. Involve family
    members or friends in watching for warning signs.
  • Avoid drugs and alcohol. Using alcohol or
    recreational drugs can worsen your symptoms and
    make them more likely to come back.
  • Take your medications exactly as directed. You
    may be tempted to stop treatment but don't.
    Stopping your medication or reducing your dose on
    your own may cause withdrawal effects or your
    symptoms may worsen or return.
  • There's no sure way to prevent bipolar disorder.
    However, getting treatment at the earliest sign
    of a mental health disorder can help prevent
    bipolar disorder or other mental health
    conditions from worsening.

  • Treatment aims to stabilize the persons mood and
    reduce the severity of symptoms. The goal is to
    help the person function effectively in daily
  • Treatment involves a combination of therapies,
  • medication
  • counseling
  • physical intervention
  • lifestyle remedies
  • It can take time to get a correct diagnosis and
    find a suitable treatment, as individuals react
    differently, and symptoms vary widely.
