Bipolar disorder is a complex chronic mental illness characterized by a "roller coaster" of severe emotional highs and lows. The disorder is estimated to affect between 2 to 5 million Americans, and severe cases can involve psychosis and a high risk of suicide. Bipolar disorder is best addressed with long term use of a combination of prescription medications.
