bipolar and sleeping through it all

by dawn
(dayton, ohio)

Adderall is totally worth it. I'm not thrilled this the stomach problems, but I'm not that worried about it. I gained so much weight on other psych drugs, that my dr. is OK with me losing weight--however. Plus, the diarrhea isn't so bad that I'm house bound. But, be sure I know where the bathroom is.


Adderall had greatly helped the virtually untreatable depression side of my bipolar, and I have tried dozens of drugs over the last 8 years. Also, now I get out of bed, journal, leave the house, and see my friends. I'd put up with anything for these changes. Before, I could sleep 20 hours a day.

Yes, I immeasurably cut back when i start feeling manic thoughts, but I'm aware of myself, and my husband helps. My bpd is severe, and adderall has given me so of my life back.
