Bipolar disorder is a brain disorder that causes unusual shifts in mood, energy, activity levels, and the ability to carry out day-to-day tasks. People with bipolar disorder typically experience manic and depressive states. If left untreated bipolar disorder can be detrimental to your health and the wellbeing of those around you. Treating this condition early and effectively is the key to living a normal life. When properly diagnosed and treated accordingly, bipolar disorder is completely manageable.
According to the National Institute of Health, there are 4 different types of bipolar disorder:
Bipolar I Disorder
Bipolar II Disorder
Other Specified and Unspecified Bipolar and Related Disorders

If you are diagnosed with bipolar disorder it is likely you will be prescribed medication to help manage your condition. Common medications prescribed to treat bipolar disorder include: Lamictal, lamotrigine, Seroquel, Abilify, lithium, Latuda.
Bipolar disorder is typically diagnosed and treated by a psychiatrist. In some cases you may be able to meet with a psychiatrist online for treatment. That said, generally speaking bipolar disorder should be diagnosed and managed with in-person visits to ensure the care plan is working.
