Feel I could be going to have a manic episode, any advice how to prevent?

Only got diagnosed last year, so now i know when I feel like this I could be on the edge of having a manic episode, anyone have any thoughts of how to prevent it happening?

I'd suggest going to your doc should you start to get manic. From personal experience, Olanzapine (Zyprexa) brought me down pretty quickly from a manic episode.
