How does Bipolar Disorder differ from a brief psychotic episode? My husband, age 35, has experienced his first event of manic psychosis, following extreme stress and sleep deprivation, lasting 2 weeks and continuing. being treated with zypexa which is slowly straightening his thoughts etc. There is absolutely no history of depression in him or his family. Yet psychiatrist is preferring diagnosis of bipolar disorder at present. From my research bipolar disorder does fit many of the symptoms he presently has but I am having real difficulty accepting that he will have a long term depressive illness when he has previously shown no sign of this and there is no family history. He is a remarkably level headed moderate and completely consistent man normally.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
