psychiatrist thinks that husband is probably bipolar with adhd. No surprise here. He took husband's history, all his medical records, and his records from the psychologist he saw several years ago, and came up with this. It is tentative. He is going to eventually be on several medications, but will start with Depakote. I sure hope this helps, I have been waiting for years for him to mellow out. Sometimes between him and difficult child I feel like I need to be locked up!! I am just curious, for those of you who have disorders that are the same as difficult child (or that one parent of difficult child has disorder) is there any link in what medications work for the parent in comparison to difficult child? Depakote was one of the medications that made difficult child super aggressive, and I REALLY hope it does not do that to husband.
