What are Common Symptoms of Bipolar Disorder?

Some factors that can trigger bipolar disorder are:

  • Stress.  From time to time, everyone deals with stress; however, a person that suffers from bipolar disorder finds it very difficult to handle stressful situations.

  • Medication.  Some prescribed medications, generally anti-depressants, tend to trigger an episode of mania.  Over-the-counter medications can also induce bipolar episodes.
