Aim and Background: The present study aimed to investigate the symptom severity and quality of life in patients suffering from bipolar disorder. Methods and Materials: This longitudinal and prospective study was done on 20 patients with bipolar type I disorder who were hospitalized in Noor Hospital of Isfahan, Iran. Patients were evaluated before hospitalization, at the time of discharge, 3 and 6 months after discharge. Patient’s mood symptoms severity and quality of life were evaluated by Young Mania Rating Scale (YMRS) and World Health Organization’s Quality of Life Questionnaire. Findings: Repeated measure analysis of variance showed that the mean of mood symptoms severity at the time of hospitalization was significantly higher than its mean at the time of discharge, as well as 3 and 6 months after it. However, there was no significant difference between the scores of quality of life at discharge, and 3 and 6 months after discharge. Conclusions: It can be acknowledged that patient’s hospitalization was effective in decreasing the symptom severity and increasing quality of life at the time of discharge and it remained the same through the next stages.
