If I am reading this correctly, it says you can't diagnose someone as bipolar based on an antidepressant induced mania?

I reviewed this some and it looked like one of the proposals was to allow mixed states diagnosis in other bipolar types other than bipolar I.

Does anyone else get this from this? It was on the Rationale tab under Mixed Specifier.

Yes and no Luv....gee forget your name. In DSM-IV mania as a result of meds excluded Bipolar diagnosis.

DSM-V is looking at calarifing this, ie if the mania persists after the med is discontinued, then Bipolar Mania may be a valid symptom pointing to Bipolar Disorder. Thus in DSM-V Bipolar Disorder is no longer excluded.

Hello again Yorkie,

What they are looking at is Manic or Hyomanic Mixed States and Depressive Mixed States. ie two core types.

What is said in the draft is a bit confusing and I get the impression that it still needs to be tied up.

I am suposed to have Mixed States Bip. I have always had problems seeing myself a meeting all the criteria for Mixed States in DSM-IV. But now I am seeing a lot closer resemblance in the proposal.

There was a very smart cookie back in nineteen thirty seven who proposed six variations of Bipolar Mixed States. I forget the poor guys name. Sad

Giving symptoms related to either mania/hypomania is a very smart idea and sounds correct to me.

In DSM-IV sufficent attention was not given to Bipolar Mixed States. It looked to me that is was just "tossed" in as an afterthought.

Found him.

As long ago as 1921, Dr. Emil Kraepelin described several kinds of mixed states, including excited or agitated depression and depression with isolated manic symptoms1. In 2000, noted bipolar researcher Dr. Hagop Agiskal reported that mania with few depressive symptoms represents the most prevalent kind of mixed or dysphoric mania.2
