Rapid cycling bipolar disorder is a mood disorder in which a person has four or more episodes of manic behavior or depression with a year. It's called "rapid cycling" because the person can have severe, drastic mood swings over a period of a few days, or even hours. These changes in behavior can be disabling. It may seem like the person is "out of control."
