Yeh, stimulants threw me way off, but Concerta, the time release version of Ritalin was a bit better than the rest.

Unfortunately, I have no winning combo for BP+ADD. Antidepressants help with the ADD and depression, but cause cycling. Also, the mood stabilizers help tremendously for me with the ADD with no downside except for stupidity. In fact the mood stabilizers work so well for ADD I don't even take any stimulants any longer.

I think what i need to do is to find a better combo of mood meds that will allow me to then take AD's without going hypo.

Take care.

I take Klonopin 1mg, Lamictal 300mg, Lithium 1350mg, and Lexapro 10mg.
