Peter,

Oh, if you're not bipolar then delete almost everything I said. Seems like the first order of business would be to get the dx nailed down. At the bottom of this post is a link to an on-line diagnosis test. When I took it years ago it was free. Now I think it costs ten bucks.

It's only a screening tool, of course, but I think it's pretty good. If my initial pdoc would have given me this simple screen he could have saved me from years of misery and lost opportunity. When I took the test the screening results showed that I am clearly bipolar without a hint of ADHD. However, your dx may be more complex and, therefore, the test might not be of great benefit to you. Best wishes figuring out your dx and meds. If I can help, let me know.
