In brief: Bipolar?

Except under somewhat unusual circumstances (e.
g., acute drug intoxication) mania is a component state of bipolar disorder. Bipolar can be well-managed through a combination of mood-stabilizing medication (they fall into a number of classes, best suited for different individuals) and psychotherapy. Once a manic episode has spontaneously appeared, the wisest course is to take this longer view.
