Reaction to stimulants = bipolar?

Posted by sheilac on June 15, 2011, at 12:17:57

I have ADD and depending on the doc, mildly bipolar.

I am wondering if taking a stimulant (even in a low dose) for my ADD (Adderall XR) aggravates an underlying mood disorder?

Would a stimulant bring out bipolar?

Adderall XR in a tiny dose works great for my ADD, but it does cause some moodiness and irritability.

Is it just that I really am bipolar and have ADD?

I feel like this is the chicken and the egg thing.

I am now taking Lithium to keep my mood stable.
