I used to be violent towards classmates and family members when I was a kid. It stopped in my 20s after I started taking meds regularly. Was it a symptom of bipolar/mania?

I think some people with hypo/mania can become aggressive and violent.

Whatever the reason, it is good that it is no longer a problem now that you take medication. It is good that you feel guilty about it too.
