Question adderall, bipolar and alcohol

I am currently on 40mg of adderall, 80mg of geodon, and 400mg of lamictal. It seems like if I have more than 2 drinks I go completely haywire...I am completely out of my realm and crave other drugs. Does anyone here agree or have the same similar experiences with bi polar. I have been drinking more than usual and just am not sure if I just need to give it time for these meds to star working....any advice would help...

Re: adderall, bipolar and alcohol

how long have you been on these medications?

i just started my adderall and i made the stupid mistake of going out to a bar with some friends. After i had like 3-4 beers i got a really bad headache and had to leave.
