My Mood: ADHD plus ?

Question ADHD plus ?

Hi
My kid started out as just ADHD late last year and now he's on a mood stabilizer (in addition to Intuniv). I wanted to know does anyone have ADHD plus something else, like bipolar? How do you manage it?

I have both bipolar and ADHD. I manage it with meds, daily routine, and good sleep.

I have ADHD, bipolar, and GAD.

I take mood stabilizers, antipsychotics, and stimulants.

Sometimes when I take my ADHD med it makes me a little extra anxious. Its manageable but.. yeah. It is tough that medication that greatly helps one condition can aggravate anoyther. Its hard to deal with, but these things can all be dealt with- and managed. It might take a while to find the right med combo- but I do believe it can be done!
