why in the world would a psychiatrist prescribe adderall to a sober alcoholic/bi polar person? It's giving speed to an addict and someone very easily addicted to drugs due to bi polar and it triggers mania!!!

my marriage of 33 years is ending and it all started when he started taking Adderall for Adhd, THEN was diagnosed with bi polar and he continues to take the adderal and he's a sober alcoholic! AND he's admitted to abusing it! This is insanity and very sad!

RobinF, Oh yes Ad's are a big no no for those that suffer from bipolar. I know that mine tried to present to me and others that it was just plain depression to get AD's and that is all he was ever perscribed which is not true either .

My ex-husband might be taking anti depressants too, that would explain the length of the mania.

I do not get it though addreall is not a anti-depressant anyway it is used to help with concentration not depression and no where did i read it was used in treating bipolar depression . My son has ADHD and was on this and it did nothing for his concentration at all .
