When did the term bipolar disorder succeed the term manic-depression?
When bipolar became an official term. The following information was obtained from an article at bphope.com, under the "history" link, in an article titled "Through the Ages" by Stephanie Stephens. The change occurred officially with the publication of the DSM III (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) in 1984. The term bipolar was being used in descriptions of manic depression from some time in the 1950's I think, but see the comments section for a link to a paper that discusses the weaknesses of any term as yet.

People with bipolar disorder can have episodes of mild to severe mania in addition to severe depressive episodes. (Mild mania is called hypomania. ) There are 2 main types of bipolar disorder. Bipolar 1 includes severe depressive and manic episodes and in some cases visual or auditory hallucinations. Bipolar 2 includes hypomania alternating with depression. ( Full Answer )

Yes and it most likely will. Relapsing is not easy nor is it good for your mental well being. Discuss stopping any medications with the doctor who prescribes them and maybe you can figure out better options. If the issue is with side effects, other medications can be added to help them or a new medi…cation can be tried.

Some medications will not work the same or at all if you take them after stopping them for an extended time period. Bipolar is best treated with medications I have found, its the only way I can live a productive life. So please get in touch with someone before you stop any medications, also withdrawal effects are horrible for some SSRI's . I understand that its hard but stopping medications will only make it harder if you are bipolar. Take care. ( Full Answer )

Depression involves only a depressed state, while Bipolar Disorder involves more. Often, people suffering from Bipolar Disorder experience a manic phase, which is essentially the opposite of depression. While depressed people may be sad, lethargic, lonely, and uninterested in most things, people exp…eriencing a manic phase often are elated, feel at the top of the world, and have tons of energy. There are many other differences. Essentially, depressed people are constantly in a depressed state, but bipolar people alternate between different states. There are variations of the states- the main factor is the pattern of experiencing highs and lows outside of the normal human range. The cycles have to last a substantial amount of time; a person is not bipolar if they go from a good mood to a bad mood within a day. Also, as I said before, the change in mood has to be outside of the usual range of emotions. It almost always effects the individuals professional and personal lives. Additionally, people with Bipolar Disorder are perhaps more at risk for getting in trouble with the law, as the manic phase can often induce impulsivity. ( Full Answer )
