Summary
When you or a loved one is diagnosed with bipolar disorder, it can be a time of fear and worry. Bipolar Bipolar Disorder For Dummies, 3rd Edition is a reassuring guide that sorts out the differences between bipolar I, bipolar II, and cyclothymic disorder; explains the biology behind the illness; and covers the latest medications, therapies, and self-help techniques to ease and eliminate symptoms, function in times of crisis and plan ahead for manic or depressive episodes. This latest edition includes coverage of the DSM-5 (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition) classifications and specifiers for bipolar disorder, updated content on genetics, biochemistry, and imaging studies relevant to bipolar; expanded coverage on how to handle the high costs of treatment; guidance for supporting a loved one (who may not want help); and expert insight into medications and treatment options, including electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), and deep brain stimulation (DBS); along with new coverage on special populations (differences in diagnosing and treating bipolar disorder in women, seniors, expectant moms, ethnic populations, and other groups)
