Hi doctor,

My father abuses me a lot and eats a lot. He is really aggressive. He also has some memory problem due to over consumption of alcohol. Unless we give food he starts destroying things. So, I think he is suffering from bipolar disorder. What should I do?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Increase appetite, aggressive behavior and destroying things are symptoms of bipolar mania. But, in bipolar mania there is decrease need for sleep.

So, it may be bipolar mania. To make a definite diagnosis, I need to know more details about his behavior.

  • Does he have symptoms like demanding behavior, increase talk, tall claims, over familiarity and racing thoughts? When it was started?
  • Is this the first episode? If this is the first episode, then it would be called as mania only, not bipolar disorder or bipolar mania.
  • Is there any past history of same symptoms or any depression episode?
