Change in manic symptoms?

If you're diagnosed as bp II ie hypomania and no psychotic symptoms, is it possible that psychotic symptoms may come along later along the track? Or are they something that some people have from the outset and others don't, and the ones that don't won't ever develop them?

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.
