Study: Bipolar disorder harder on kids - 05/25/05

Study: Bipolar disorder harder on kids - 05/25/05: "Bipolar disorder is a more severe illness for kids than adults during the first few years after diagnosis, a landmark study suggested Monday.
The first research tracking a large group of bipolar children and teenagers finds that 2 1/2 years after diagnosis:
� Nearly a third haven't recovered.
� The remainder takes about 17 months to recover.
� Four out of five have at least one recurrence. "
