Acute Manic Excitement (AME)
is a disorder that brings about a sense of power,
abnormal increase in energy levels, wakefulness
and a feeling of profound excitement. These sens-
ations may get so intense that the person actually
begins to act on them. When severe it may be followed
by hallucinations and distorted thinking.
Accompanying symptoms ::
Rapid and excessive speech. Decreased
need for sleep. Paranoid drinking and a tendency
to get distracted easily. Most often the patient
is unaware there is something wrong with him.
Like other psychological disorders,
AME is also thought to be of genetic origin. Without
medication it may take a year or more to resolve,
with possibilities of a relapse. It is important
to consult a psychiatrist. Modern anti-manic drugs
(only to be taken under strict supervision) are
known to cure AME completely.
