What is bipolar disorder?

Bipolar disorder is a mental health condition that causes unusual shifts in mood. People with bipolar disorder have manic and depressive episodes.

Manic episode

During a manic episode, your mood is elevated and euphoric, and you have a lot of energy. However, you may also feel restless and irritable and have problems sleeping. 

Manic episodes can be so concerning that they require hospitalization. On the other hand, hypomanic means your manic symptoms are less severe, and you may not require hospitalization.

Depressive episode

During a depressive episode, your mood is low, and you feel down, sad, and hopeless. You may also feel tired and sleep more or less than usual.

What are the types of bipolar disorder?

At Prime Psychiatry, our team classifies bipolar disorders based on the severity of the manic and depressive episodes. Bipolar disorder types include:

Bipolar I disorder

With bipolar I disorder, you have severe manic episodes that last seven or more days, followed by periods of depression. 

Bipolar II disorder

With bipolar II disorder, the mood changes are less severe, causing episodes of hypomania and depression. 

Cyclothymic disorder

The cyclothymic disorder causes hypomanic and depressive symptoms for at least two years. However, the shifts in mood aren’t severe enough for a bipolar disorder diagnosis.

What happens during a psychiatric evaluation for bipolar disorder?

The specifics of your psychiatric evaluation at Prime Psychiatry depend on your symptoms and mental health history. However, you can expect a comprehensive, patient-focused evaluation. 

Your provider reviews your symptoms, mental health history, medical history, and family history. We also administer psychological tests, assessing your cognitive, mental, and emotional health.

Testing also helps our team diagnose your mental health condition so we can design the most appropriate treatment plan.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, TMS Therapy, uses short pulses of magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in one of the areas of the brain thought to control mood. TMS Therapy is performed in a psychiatrist’s office under his or her supervision while you remain awake and alert.
