Re: Change in manic symptoms?
If you've only ever had one manic episode, was it stopped at hypomania? That is, did you seek treatment before it became a full-blown manic episode? If so, there is a possibility that you might really be bipolar I. Also, usually in bipolar I, their first episode isn't a true manic episode with psychotic features, but instead, mild hypomania to start. Still, if you're on meds and they seem to be keeping symptoms away, I wouldn't worry. As long as you continue the meds, you don't have to worry about potentially developing psychotic features.
