> >....i was diagnosed bpI by the best expert in the field - if you want the name, we can do this person-to-person - and upon revisiting my d.o./pdoc, he said ``so, you saw the foremost person in >the field of bipolar and you were diagnosed bipolar. what a surprise.'' dexedrine has made me stable, able to concentrate, and does *not* affect sleep. i'm a little bit depressed - circumstances - but i agree with you in toto that adderall or dexedrine can be the answer....thanks for your post, and all the best, chemist

> So are you suggesting that I may possibly be bp and not GAD/ADD? That is very interesting. Maybe that is why my Effexor stopped working (as described in another post). I am going to do a little research. What class is Soma in (sounds like the benzodiaz family)? I have heard the name a lot, but have never been prescribed it. So are you given DextroAmph and Soma?

hi there...what i am saying is, if you see a person who is predisposed to diagnosing patients with a certain bias, then you will likely be diagnosed as such. one ex-shrink loved OCD, so i was OCD. another, BP, so i'm bipolar. the real answer is, what cocktail of meds can you and your (willing) doc come up with? could be that GAD is right on, and that you aren't a good fit for effexor. or maybe it's not GAD but BPI/II or ADD.
soma is a skeletal muscle relaxant (carisoprodol), it'll turn you to jelly! i am on dexedrine and xanax......all the best, chemist
