Bipolar Disorder Symptoms; 7 Manic Symptoms & 7 Depressive Symptoms

3. Sleeping too much or too little

In the maniac episode patients often sleep too little, but in the depressive episodes they may either sleep too much or too little. They usually have an altered pattern of sleep, and it is usually a lack of sleep instead of excessive sleeping because these patients do not experience a complete depression as clinically depressed patients do. Their depression is an anxious type of depression, and often struggle trying to fall asleep.
