HYPOMANIC EPISODES

Hypomanic episodes are similar to manic episodes. They are also characterized by euphoria and disinhibition but unlike manic episodes the hypomanic person is still functional, with no psychosis. During a hypomanic episode, individuals will experience high energy, wakefulness or irritability. They may be easily distracted or entertain grandiose ideas. They may have heightened confidence or creativity. It can be a very productive time, under the right circumstances. Hypomania is the beginning stage of a manic cycle. Bipolar disorder and depression are contributing factors. Hypomania may be treated with therapy in combination with anti-manic medication.
