I have been overspending, feeling full of energy, getting ideas above my station, have decreased sleep. Can a manic episode last for a few months?
Yes it can.: Yes, sleep deprivation can cause both irritability and mild euphoria. Studies show decreased sleep increases the amount of Dopamine in the brain, promoting an amphetamine like response. This wakefulness comes with a decrease in the brain's processing ability. Sleep loss is also associated with increased appetite, risk of stroke, and heart disease. ...Read more

Bleeding: The period is usually affected by many factors like your weight, medications, other medical conditions, etc. If it is prolonged, I suspect a possible anovulatory state. You may be having some degree of hormonal imbalance. You may need some blood tests to check your hormonal status and possibly an ultrasound. Depending on your age, you may need a biopsy of the lining of the uterus. ...Read more
Should a doctor prescribe sleeping pills as the last resort if a person is having difficulty sleeping?
Yes: A recent study associated the use of sleeping pills with a greater risk of dying. This doesn't prove cause & effect but it is certainly worrisome. I'd recommend trying non-pharmacologic means first before moving on towards medications. Sometimes we don't have the luxury of time on our side and have to prescribe something immediately. ...Read more
