I have been wondering, I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder about a year and a half ago. Now a different pdoc is saying I have ADD instead. My symptoms fit both disorders. I had asked this a while back in a thread about if one can have both disorders. Of course why couldn't they? Just because you have one, doesn't mean you can't have another disorder.
Also I have a history of seizures, temporal lobe, and I've had 2 grand mal seizures. The first grand mal was 8 years ago, the other about a month ago. Since Strattera didn't work for me, and I had to stop taking it, my pdoc mentioned putting me on Adderall. I wonder if I can do that with a history of seizures?
I was just interested in reading that you are bipolar and have ADD. I have been wondering if I have both.
Glad to hear you are doing well on Strattera!!!
