Bipolar disorder (sometime referred to as Manic Depression) is a characterized by periods of extremely low and depressed moods and one or more period of excessively elevated moods (mania or hypomania). When someone is manic, they experience extremely elevated and positive moods, racing thoughts, and at times possibly even psychosis. When this happens, there may not be any concern for negative consequences leading to extremely risky behaviors such as gambling, drug use, hypersexuality, excess spending, or other risk-taking behaviors. These can be incredibly destructive to one’s life. Hypo-mania occurs in that “middle zone” between stable mood and mania, with some milder features of mania which are not overtly destructive. The depression in bipolar can often be very intense and frequently doesn’t respond well to certain. antidepressant.

These may be part of a medical conditions called Bipolar Disorder, which can be treated. At Psychiatric Associates of Pennsylvania, we offer the most advanced treatment options available for Bipolar Disorders.
Bipolar Disorder is a characterized by episodes of extremely elevated moods (mania) alternating with episodes of extremely depressed moods (depression). During manic episodes individuals may feel excessive energy, euphoria, and decreased need for sleep. When mild (hypomania), these symptoms may be seen as enjoyable and “fun”. However, as these symptoms worsen, they may progress to pressured and aggressive speech, grandiose thoughts, poor judgment due to impulsiveness, and in extreme cases even psychosis. These may interfere with daily life and can even contribute to criminal behavior. Without treatment, these symptoms may last for weeks and can ruin relationships, careers, and lives.
During periods of depression, individuals may feel loss of joy and happiness along with a sense of helplessness and hopelessness. In addition, people may have persistent feelings of anger, guilt, anxiety, and isolation. Sleep disturbances are also common.
A proper diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder is necessary to help identify these patterns of behavior to ensure proper treatment. Because there is the potential to flip back and forth between these two extremes, improper management of one may trigger the other. Psychiatric Associates of Pennsylvania can help stabilize your moods allowing you better control of your life.
