Will someone taking meds for being bipolar always need them?


Answer by  Julie (172)

Bipolar disorder stems from a physiological hormone imbalance, and can be linked usually with other chronic health conditions requiring medication. Probably someone will always need the Bipolar meds.

Yes, you need to take your medication for the rest of your life. Being bipolar is a life long condition and though you may feel better once you start taking the medication if you stop your condition will return.

Unfortunately, yes. At this time, medical science does not have a permanent cure for mental conditions such as being bipolar. Anyone taking medicines to treat their condition have to remember that, even though they are feeling just fine, the illness will recur if they stop taking them.

Yes, generally they will always need them. It is possible that at some point they will no longer need them, however it is extremely hard to get off of them.
