Bipolar disorders are broadly broken into three groups: bipolar 1, bipolar 2, and cyclothymia. Each is characterized by varying degrees of vascilation between the poles of mania and depression. Bipolar 1 is characterized by episodes of mania, Bipolar 2 by hypomania, cyclothymia by greater than average variation in energy levels and mood. Lithium is the medication of choice for bipolar 1 and, in Dr. Hersevoort’s opinion, can be initiated and managed by primary care physicians.
