Yes: Yes, most patients start bipolar disorder in childhood. The earlier a child is treated, the less likely the child will continue on to have bipolar symptoms in adulthood. See: http://www.Thebalancedmind.Org/ also see the great book by janet wozniak, md "is your child bipolar?".

Which antidepressant can someone take, if he has acute narrow angle glaucoma?

Bad question: One does not normally walk around with acute narrow angle glaucoma because the pressure can reach 60 to 90 and this will blind the person within hours.....Hence the word acute attack!
what you must mean it that the angles are narrow and capable of inducing an attack under the right circumstances. With today's laser technology such patients should be cured by treatment with laser.

Could I have schizoaffective disorder, bi-polar disorder, and borderline personality disorder?
3 doctor answers • 14 doctors weighed in

Yes, almost: Officially, according to the diagnostic manual, it is possible to have schizoaffective disorder-bipolar type and borderline personality disorder-both at once. One is a problem with your mood and your thoughts called psychosis and the other has to do with how you cope with stress and the trials and tribulations of life in general. Good luck.
