    RE: BiPolar Disorder

    Hello.

    I was diagnosed as having Bipolar Disorder in April 1998 during an admission into the psychiatric ward of a local hospital. I was admitted because I was suicidal and very depressed, but bounced back to almost a normal mood within 24 hours. Their psychiatrist interviewed me for about 15 minutes and accurately diagnosed me as having Bipolar and prescribed the correct medications.

    If I understand your question correctly, the answer would be "no". The mental health doctor would have to ask a series of questions plus observe the patient's current behavior and take a full medical history.

    I hope this helps and that you find answers and relief soon.

    Blessings,
    -Dave

    RE: BiPolar Disorder

    If I understand you. I was diagnosed bipolar 2 in 2007 , after my wife died, before that I went to my family doctors who would hand out antidepressants like candy for my depression. Just a few month ago I suffered a full blown text book manic attack. Top of the world could do anything felt great!!! It was a new high. 3 days later the voices started. They were voices like some one was talking to you in the same room not whispering do this, do that they where right there telling you what to do, when no one was there. Then I crashed HARD!!! If my family had not been around not sure what I would have done. That they can see, but if i had to I could make them thank that I was just as sane as the next person when I am having a good day.
