Mixed mania

A state of mind characterized by symptoms of both mania and depression, mixed mania is seen in bipolar disorders. It is more common in bipolar children and women. A person experiencing mixed mania may feel agitated, angry, irritable, and depressed all at once. Because it combines a high activity level with depression, mixed mania poses a particular danger of suicide or self- injury. Treatment is by mood-stabilizing medication, sometimes accompanied by anti-depressant or neuroleptic medication. Also known as agitated depression. See also bipolar disorders.
