Bipolar is a mental disorder that is characterized by serious mood swings - alternating with highs (what clinicians call "mania") and lows (also known as depression). The periods of mania and depression vary from person to person and are often so extreme that they interfere with daily life. Fortunately, there are several options for treating bipolar disorder that can control the effects of an episode and help someone with the disorder live life as normally as possible.
