For Bipolar People Is There an Opposite to Manic Dysphoria and What Is It Called?

Question by bluguy57: For Bipolar People Is There An Opposite To Manic Dysphoria And What Is It Called?
I know that for bipolar people you can be in a manic state of energy but extreme upset i.e. manic dysphoria.

Is there an opposite? Is there a mixed state where you have the low, sluggish energy of depression but with the extreme happiness that sometimes accompanies mania?

If there is what is it called? I was thinking “euphoric depression” but that sounds like an oxymoron because “depression” has connotations of being sad. This would be like a state of depression minus the unhappiness plus great happiness.

Bipolar, Manic Depression – Bipolar, Manic Depression Disorder Truehope Ashley D. With Wellbutrin Side Effects Ashley first got ill in 2003 or 2004. She was prescribed medications, which she experienced severe side effects from. When Ashley brought up her issues and concerns with her doctor, she was told that this was normal and that she had nothing to worry about. As time went on, the issues, side effects, and mental health issues became more severe, and she was eventually admitted into the psych ward. Ashley was kept in the hospital for 3.5 months, where she was put on medication after medication, all with no success. The side effects got so bad from the high amount of psych meds that her kidneys and liver began to shut down and she almost died, all while being in the psychiatric institution. Ashley felt that the drugs sucked all life and hope out of her, and as a result, it made her suicidal. While she was in the psych ward, she was told that she would never be normal, function in society, go back to school, drive a car, or have a job.
