Welcome to HCM

Bipolar disorder is a mood disorder. It is a episodic illness and episodes of mania and depression. Treatment with medicines is advisable. Most of psychiatrists favour medicinal treatment. Medicines as Sodium evaporate, carbamazepine,lithium, low dose antipsychotics like olanzapin etc are very effective. So please don't try to stop medicine by own, visit your psychiatrist for expert opinion otherwise condition will worsen.

Psychiatrist Dr. Sundar Gnanavel's  Response
Thanks for your query. Bipolar disorder is a type of mood disorder that is characterised by phases of depression and mania. Neurotransmitter chemical abnormalities have been demonstrated in the brain of bipolar patients. Hence, medication called as mood stabilisers are considered the gold standard foe management.
I suggest that you should not stop psychotropic medication by yourself prior to discussing your concerns with your treating psychiatrist. Wish you good health.
