Lithium Abnormal Behaviour Causes and Reviews


Bipolar disorder is a serious mental illness. People who have it go through unusual mood changes. They go from very happy, "up," and active to very sad and hopeless, "down," and inactive, and then back again. They often have normal moods in between. The up feeling is called mania. The down feeling is depression.

The causes of bipolar disorder aren't always clear. It runs in families. Abnormal brain structure and function may also play a role.

Bipolar disorder often starts in a person's late teen or early adult years. But children and adults can have bipolar disorder too. The illness usually lasts a lifetime.

If you think you may have it, tell your health care provider. A medical checkup can rule out other illnesses that might cause your mood changes.

If not treated, bipolar disorder can lead to damaged relationships, poor job or school performance, and even suicide. However, there are effective treatments to control symptoms: medicine and talk therapy. A combination usually works best.

Lithium causes depression by way of suppression by way of a mental block it creates in ones mind . this leads to suicidal thoughts then thinking of killing oneself. if you are misdiagnosed bi polar and you are not this will probably happen. if there is a reason you end up in a mental institution and nobody cares and you are labeled bipolar by a doctor who doesn t have a clue you might possibly spend you re life in there being overly medicated to offset the drugs you shouldn t be on in the first place.
