Bipolar disorder is a serious mental illness that needs a careful consideration for its diagnosis and treatment. Dr Rajendra Kumar is an experienced psychiatrist at Ten Harley street, London who could help in its diagnosis and treatment.


Bipolar disorder often has a long course and is characterised by both episodes of depressed mood and episodes of elated mood (mania or hypomania). However, for many people the predominant experience is of low mood. In its more severe forms, bipolar disorder is associated with significant impairment of personal and social functioning.


The peak age of onset is in late adolescence or early adult life, with a further small increase in incidence in mid to late life.*

Two types:

Bipolar I disorder (in which episodes of both depression and mania are required for diagnosis) and

Bipolar II disorder (in which episodes of both depression and hypomania, but no evidence of mania). This is more difficult to diagnose as it is confused with other psychiatric disorders including emotionally unstable personality disorder-borderline type. Patients with this disorder, generally, have more episodes of depression and usually do not respond to treatment with antidepressants.


Treatment:
Lithium, Olanzapine, Quetiapine, Risperidone, Aripiprazole, Sodium Valproate, Valproic acid (as valproate semisodium), Lamotrigine and various antidepressants.
