Biggest Bipolar Triggers


The Hardest:

“Avoiding Top Bipolar Triggers”

“Bipolar disorder is characterized by extreme shifts in mood — from high moments of grandeur to deeply depressed lows.”

“And when those shifts are severe enough, they can have a profound effect on your life.”It may take months or years to piece your life back together after the damage is done”, says psychiatrist Jeffrey Bennett, MD, an assistant professor of psychiatry at the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine in Springfield.”

“But can they be avoided? Perhaps. Understanding what triggers mood swings and planning ahead to deal with them can help you avoid a damaging episode of mania or depression.”


“One of the most common bipolar triggers is stress. In a study published in June 2014 in the Journal of Affective Disorders, negative or stressful life events seemed to trigger mood swings. “People with bipolar disorder are seven to eight times more likely to experience an unwanted, extended period of extreme mood shift — failure of their ususal coping mechanisms — in response to a stressful life event,” says Dr. Bennett. The events that cause serious stress are highly individual, but certain key life events and lifestyle patterns may act as triggers.”
