What are signs of bipolar disorder?
Bipolar disorder affects an individual's mood, thoughts and behaviors. It can cause dramatic shifts in emotion, from feelings of extreme highs to lows. People living with bipolar disorder may experience changes in energy levels, behavior, sleep patterns and decision making. These shifts in mood can significantly impact how they interact with others or lead on a day-to-day basis. Signs of bipolar disorder can include talking faster than usual, feeling invincible or powerful during manic episodes, increased energy or irritability, racing thoughts and impulsive decisions during hypomanic episodes. It’s essential for those affected to reach out for professional help as soon as possible so that the underlying bipolar disorder can be addressed properly and effectively managed.
Treatment for Bipolar Disorder
Treatment for bipolar disorder usually involves psychotherapy and medication, but there are other approaches that can help manage bipolar symptoms without medication, such as lifestyle changes and self-care routines. While treatment for bipolar disorder is highly individualized, medications including mood stabilizers, antipsychotics, and antidepressants are often prescribed to help stabilize moods. Psychotherapy such as cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) has been shown to be helpful in improving bipolar symptoms too, both in combination with and independent of medication. Additionally, holistic approaches and alternative therapies can be beneficial in treating bipolar disorder. It's important to talk with a doctor or a healthcare provider to determine the best treatment plan for managing bipolar disorder.
