Can overactive sex cause bipolar 1?

How do doctors know you have bipolar just by looking? Can too much sex cause bipolar 1? And what meds are good if you do have it?

    It’s the other way around. Bipolar can cause reckless sex and hyper sexuality in the manic episodes.

    No but hypersexuality is a SYMPTOM of bipolar. That could be the underlying reason you're having so much sex.

    There are a LOT OF SYMPTOMS connected with Bipolar Disorder.

    True, being hyper-sexual and indiscriminate when it comes to sex is just ONE symptom.

    To better explain this, why not Google a list of symptoms associated with Bipolar Disorder 1?

    And Bipolar Disorder is a genetic and inherited mental illness caused by a biochemical imbalance within the brain that is maintained by taking daily medication.  As far as what medications may be most effective or right for you, that's up to your doctor who should have lab work and your medical history before prescribing.
