What is cyclothymia and how is it different from Bipolar disorder? This video compares bipolar disorder and cyclothymic disorders. I also discuss when it begins and whether it becomes bipolar disorder.
Cyclothymia can be described as similar to bipolar 2, but with fewer symptoms and less severe episodes. Bipolar 2 disorder can cause episodes of depression and hypomania. Cyclothymic has symptoms of hypomania, but not enough for it to be classified as a hypomanic episode. There are also symptoms of depression, but they are not severe enough to be considered a complete depressive episode.
