As other reports of brain is normal,nothing to worry,

if it continued,then doctor may change the medicine or make some adjustment of the dose schedule.

Psychiatrist Dr. Keerthish Shetty's  Response
Bipolar disorder is a chronic disease which can manifest episodically as depression or mania/hypomania (As the name suggests, there are two poles to the disease, one excessively sad and the other excessively happy). There are two aspects of treatment. First one is to control the acute symptoms of an episode when they occur, and the second one is to prevent such episodes from occurring in future (prophylactic treatment). Therefore, it is important to continue treatment as advised by the doctor. Regular follow ups help in early identification of problems and better treatment.
