View Full Version : Difference between mania/adhd meds

10-20-13, 05:54 AM
I can't tell if my adhd meds are working, or if they are sending me into mania.

I mean my motivation is up, and I also feel better than when I am just on bipolar meds. (Lithium makes me feel so blah)

Is there anyway to tell the difference? To be able to catch yourself before going into a manic episode?

I'm taking Vyvanse w/ Adderall boosters. Thinking of asking my doctor about Wellbutrin.

Hey check out my thread about hypomania/euphoria. It may help.

If you are still manic hours and hours after the meds have worn off is a pretty good indicator....(and into the next day *without* taking any ADHD meds = hypo or mania most likely)
