Hi,

The options available to treat the bipolar disease are many these days. The prognosis to manage this problem in a student who is 20 years of age is excellent in my opinion and if the individual were working closely with a counselor or therapist as well as a doctor I believe there is a very good chance that relapses can be significantly minimized, possibly avoided if vigilance is maintained at a high level by both patient and doctor.

There are very good treatments and approaches available both pharmacologically as well as non-pharmacologically.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dariush Saghafi, Neurologist
