In brief: Varied

The symptoms vary depending on the type of bipolar disorder.
There is bipolar i, bipolar ii, cyclothymia and bipolar disorder nos. Manic symptoms can include a marked increase in energy and decreased need for sleep, racing thought, rapid speech, euphoric mood, hypersexual, hyper religious, grandiose delusion, etc. Depression in bipolar disorder often looks like unipolar depression.
