Bipolar Symptoms in Men

Bipolar disorder, formerly known as manic-depressive illness, is a mental health condition characterized by extreme mood swings, ranging from emotional highs (mania) to emotional lows (depression). It affects millions of people worldwide and can be particularly challenging for men due to social stigma and the pressure to conform to societal expectations. The following are some common bipolar symptoms in men:

  • Manic episodes – During a manic episode, men may exhibit increased energy levels, a decreased need for sleep, extreme irritability, rapid speech, and impulsive behavior. They may also engage in risky activities like substance abuse or reckless spending.
  • Depressive episodes – Unlike manic episodes, depressive episodes involve feelings of sadness, hopelessness, fatigue, and a loss of interest in activities they previously enjoyed. Men with bipolar disorder may also experience difficulty concentrating and making decisions during depressive episodes.
  • Mixed episodes – Some men may experience mixed episodes involving symptoms of both mania and depression. These episodes can be particularly challenging, as the individual may feel energized and depressed simultaneously.
  • Anger and aggression – Men with bipolar disorder are more likely to exhibit anger and aggression during mood episodes. This can lead to interpersonal conflicts and, in some cases, legal issues.

These serious symptoms should be treated immediately by a mental health treatment center.

Signs of Bipolar Disorders in Men

Identifying the signs of bipolar disorders in men is crucial for early intervention and effective treatment. Some common signs to look out for include the following:

  • Rapid mood swings – Men with bipolar disorder may experience drastic mood changes within a short period, often without any apparent reason.
  • Substance abuse – Men with bipolar disorder are more likely to engage in substance abuse as a means of self-medication. This can further complicate their mental health and lead to addiction.
  • Social withdrawal – During depressive episodes, men may isolate themselves from friends and family, avoiding social situations.
  • Changes in sleep patterns – Men with bipolar disorder may experience drastic changes in their sleep patterns, either sleeping too much or too little.

If you or your loved one is experiencing this, don’t hesitate to contact Evoke Wellness at Miramar. Remember, early intervention can be more effective during a manic or depressive episode.
