Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar Disordersearch for term

One of the major effective emotional disorders in which periods of mania and periods of depression occur in the same individual is Bipolar Disorderi.
Also called manic-depressive illness, bipolar disorder is characterized by cyclical mood swings that alternate between periods of high activity and periods of depression. The duration of the cycles is unique to each individual.

Substance abusei is very common among people with bipolar disorder, but the reasons for this link are unclear.
Some people with bipolar disorder may try to treat their symptoms with alcohol or drugs. However, substance abuse may trigger or prolong bipolar symptoms, and the behavioral control problems associated with mania can result in a person drinking too much.
