Make sure you mean hyper manic not hypo manic. Hypomanic means mild mood swings. That's common. Hypermanic means extreme mania and that can cause lack of judgment and reality testing that can be extremely dangerous and if that's what's diagnosed by a psychiatrist within their judgment it needs treatment right away. Insomnia can be a part of it but unless after medication is adjusted it still exists generally a sleep aide is last resort because episodes of mania and depression of course cause extreme sleep disruption. As for what medications are available speak to a psychiatrist but we have some good websites linked up from the welcome page for informational purposes. For starters here's a full list of mood stabilizers:
