Little Bear is being referred to a great children's hospital in our state and we are now waiting for his appointment to their psychiatry clinic. It takes 6-8 weeks after referral to be called for an appointment. so I am trying to get all my question's together now. We have tried all kinds of medications and combo's of medications and now have a pretty good one going. Little Bear still is left with some symptoms of ADHD which really didn't come out until his mood was stabalized. I have read up on some options of adding a 2nd Mood Stabalizer such as Lithium or going the route of adding Adderral (a stimulant) to help with these symptoms. Since stimulants can induce mania we are of course worried about that option. Something I read said if the mood is stabalized then you could try this route. I wanted to see if anyone had went the stimlant route with their bipolar child and what was the outcome? Any help is greatly appreciated!!
