Is this depression or ADHD untreated?

Hello, I am a 25 year old adult man. I have been diagnosed with ADHD, social anxiety and bipolar disorder. For those, my psychiatrist prescribes 30 mg of Adderall XR, 40 mg of Geodon, and 10 mg of Ambien. My psychiatrist doesn't prescribe me benzos because I have a history of abuse with them, and omg those benzos are what most fix me. I have been taking Adderall for years now but I have noticed it doesn't function as well as it did. I'm not even productive anymore, sometimes I can't focus, makes me feel nervous and irritated. Should I take a pause from it for a while? or is it have to do with my new Geodon treatment? I started Geodon 4 months ago and I think it's doing its job because I haven't felt depressed... well, kind of. but definitely I don't feel sad at all. Also my libido has decreased significantly. But here is what is really going on driving me crazy: I don't feel like talking to friends and family because it makes me feel anxious cause I feel I have nothing good to say, I also seek isolation, I have zero motivation, I have disconnected and detached myself from my surroundings and people, I'm afraid to express my emotions or show them because of what others may think. I'm unable to work because my anxiety strikes, I have never had a relationship not even a kiss which got me thinking Do I know how to love? I'm so worried and scared. I'm not thinking straight, help me please. Is this depression or ADHD untreated?

Re: Is this depression or ADHD untreated?

Do you take an antidepressant for bipolar as well?
