Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hello, for around 2-3 years I was diagnosed with Bipolar. Then I mentioned a couple of new symptoms and my doctor said sometimes ADHD and Bipolar are often misdiagnosed because of their characteristics. I was on lamictial which was a wonder drug for me. The doctor took me off lamitial and gave me adderall and then said I was AdHD. The adderall does help me stay more focused and gives me energy. I know I have severe depressive tendencies. Sometimes I have extreme highs, even without the adderral, and do things that aren't rational. I personally feel like I have both bipolar and adhd. Is it possible that I have both? And the bipolar type based on my reading seems like a mixed type. yesterday I reached a serious low but today I have bounced back. Any suggestions?
Thank you for your explanation. I also needed to hear it's okay to see another professional anytime a person's questions and needs are not being met. I would love to have future questions in this subject area addressed by you. Thank you and have a lovely weekend.
