    Bi polar effective disorder is a pyschiatric condition,previously known as manic depression, it is a mood disorder typically resulting in periods of mania (elevated moods and behaviour) followed by one or more episodes of depression,in past (personal research) it was thought to be genetic,symptoms  are often controlled effectively with the use of Lithium or other mood stabilizing medication, there are many famous people throughout history thought to have suffered with this condition

    Watch out with the lithium. Though a good drug on it's own, I was poisoned by it. Careful!!!!

    yes Julie,Lithium requires scheduled blood tests for levels and as you said can become toxic in the system,no doctor would usually prescribe this without maintenance and monitoring

    My doctor failed to keep up the maint. blood checks. My housemate came home to find me eating coffee grounds with a fork. 3 days of IV's fixed me right up.....

    Oh Julie, that constitutes negligence on the part of your doctor,think I'd be looking for a new one,this and similar meds are serious as is the condition,and both need to be monitored at regular scheduled intervals,more if required

    Oh, he sees me on time every 3 months and maintains my meds just fine. He just goofed, I'm OK now.....I like him and that means a lot.....

    bipolar might be one of the followings concepts: a device that has two poles or charges, an idea that consists of two contradictory approaches, a biological structure with two opposite ends, someone that suffers from the psychiatric disorder called bipolar disorder, which is characterized by depressions and manias (two opposite emotions).
