Bipolar disorder is a mood disorder marked by extreme high and low moods.

The exact cause of bipolar disorder isn’t known. A mix of genetics, environment, and altered brain structure as well as chemistry may play a role.

Manic episodes may include symptoms such as high energy, reduced need for sleep, and loss of touch with reality.
