Bipolar Disorder: FAQs

1. What is bipolar disorder?

Earlier known as manic depression, Bipolar Disorder is actually a group of disorders. In this mental disorder, a person experiences extreme mood episodes, ranging from the lows of depression to the highs of mania. These intense mood swings can severely hinder a person's relationships with loved ones along with productivity at work and school.

2. What are the types of bipolar disorder?

Bipolar disorder is of three types:

Bipolar I-The mania episode lasting for at least seven days is a type I bipolar disorder. Besides, the depressive cycle can last up to two weeks. When a person suffers from both episodes simultaneously, it is known as a mixed episode. A person may need to be hospitalized too in this condition.

Bipolar II- A person experiences hypomanic and depressive episodes when diagnosed with bipolar II. High energy levels, fast speech, and agitation are the signs of the hypomanic cycle. In this type of bipolar disorder, the depressive mood is severe and can continue for a longer period. However, the manic episode is less intense than bipolar I.

Cyclothymic Disorder- It involves less intense hypomania and depression episodes, hence a milder form of bipolar disorder. This brain condition can last for at least two years in adults and one year in children and teens.

3. What are the causes of Bipolar Disorder?

The exact cause of this brain disorder is yet unknown. However, according to some studies, genetics, major life changes, abuse, child trauma, and environmental factors can trigger bipolar disorder.

4. Why happens if Bipolar Disorder is left untreated?

If not treated on time, bipolar disorder may worsen with age. A bipolar patient may experience more severe and more frequent episodes than before as time passes. It will eventually cause more severe damage to a person's life.

Long-term effects and complications of the mental disorder may involve substance abuse and addiction to alcohol and drugs, disruption of interpersonal relationships, door performance at work and school, co-occurring comorbid psychological disorders like ADHD, anxiety, and disruptive behavior disorders, social isolation, depression, self-harm, and suicidal thoughts

5. How is bipolar disorder treated?

Usually, the treatment for this psychological condition is a trial and error procedure which may involve a cocktail therapy of medications, therapies, sometimes ECT and alternative methods as well. Therapists will recommend lifestyle changes to the patient. The depressive mood is more prone to relapse than manic episodes. Hence, a bipolar person must continue to cooperate with the mental health professional while following the advised treatment to avoid any relapses.
