Get a full psychiatric evaluation for bipolar disorder.
If bipolar disorder is found, then medications, typically mood stabilizers will be prescribed. Therapy is also strongly indicated. If The evaluation is negative for bipolar disorder, medication still may be needed. In that case therapy is also strongly indicated.
