To be honest, I haven't heard of this one. I think Abilify, would have been a safer bet.

Aderedall is speed I think. Sounds like a cool drug to take. Tell me how it feels.

It’s awesome. Literally 1st day on it and I did more work than ever. I just hope I don’t lose functionality down there. Hoping someone says the opposite

I have had been proscribed with adderall for many years in the past and I have never had any sexual side effects. I also have never heard that complaint from anyone i know that taken it

I hadn't known it was used in Bipolar, had always thought it was a stimulant used in ADHD. Is there not a risk for it triggering a mania?

I think there is a risk, but if you have ADD as well it will calm you and actually reduce the hyper effect.

Taking stimulants like Adderall is tricky business.
It can induce a manic or psychotic response.
My doctor wouldn’t prescribe such a medication.
But good luck just the same.

I have a bipolar friend who was overprescribed Adderall and got addicted. She says the withdrawal from it was sheer hell too. She's suing the doctor now for malpractice. Just a head's up.

I've been on Adderall before for a long time. And yes, it did increase my libido quite a bit. As to whether a stimulant like Adderall causes mania or hypomania, it's different for everyone. It does make me somewhat hyper but not hypomanic.

I did too but for ADHD and to focus better with school. So far it’s actually given me negative sexual side effects.
