This is a quote from bipolar book I am reading by Johns Hopkins Press Health Book:

Soft bipolar disorders that some researchers call bipolar III. These patients have a baseline mood that is a bit "higher" then that of most people, a personality characteristic that has been called hyperthymic temperament. Their usual energy level is high; they are cheerful, talkative, confident, and sociable. The down side of their personality style is that they tend to become irritated easily and can be impulsive, even reckless at times. They usually have a family history of bipolar disorder and are bothered by recurrent depressions. Antidepressant medication alone can make them more irratable and miserable or prooke a manic or hypomanic episode, but mood stabilizers can be very helpful.
