Doctors noticed mood improvement in some eipilepsy patients. Anticonvulsants work by calming hyperactivity in the brain in various ways. Some anti-convulsant medications are Depakote, Tegretol, Lamictal, Trileptal and some newer drugs. Each drug acts on the brain in different ways.
Studies suggest that Epilepsy and Bipolar Affective Disorder may be related conditions caused by similar neurochemical states. The drugs which stabilize the broader neurologic dysfunctions in eplileptic patients can help stabilize the more narrowly defined neurochemical imbalances in Bipolar patients.
Manic Depression Bi-PolarThere is no difference between bipolar disorder and manic depression. Bipolar is the modern term for manic depression. The term "manic depression" is much misunderstood. Some people think "manic" means "really depressed." Mania is the 'opposite' of depression. A manic depressive is someone who cycles between being manic and depressed. The term "bipolar" supposedly makes this more clear.
Contrary to what many believe, manic depression is not "serious depression" or "real depression", although it is very serious and real. Mania is the opposite of depression. According to the dictionary, it is "an excessively intense enthusiasm, interest, or desire." A manic-depressive is someone who cycles between mania and depression. It is the same as bipolar disorder. Manic depression is also known as Bipolar 1 or Bipolar 2. Its a complicated mental problem that is treated with medication. MANIC DEPRESSION is now called Bi Polar as in 2 poles of mood, lows and highs. I myself am asufferer and hate the WORD MANIC thankfully it now has a much kinder title. Indeed myself and others do have severe depressions. The highs differ and I have hypomania, mild highs. This is a severe illness many loose touch with reality. Depression is the opposite. Try on line for list of symptoms. good luck
Bipolar disorder and Manic Depression Disorder are two terms that describe the same condition. It is believed however that Bipolar is a bit more accurate because the condition is characterized as being mood swings that seem to swing from one extreme to the other, hence Bipolar. The two phases, especially when we are discussing children, are not always clearly defined as Manic or Depressive. For this reason, it is unclear why they have begun using Manic Depression to stand in for Bipolar Disorder.
