Bipolar and Related Disorder

Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness, is a brain condition that causes uncommon changes in mood, energy, activity levels, and the ability to carry out everyday tasks.

Mania and hypomania are two distinct types of episodes, but they have the same symptoms like increased activity, unusual talkativeness, and decreased need for sleep, distractibility and poor decision making. Treatment includes medications like mood stabilizers, atypical antipsychotics and antidepressants.
