Adhd

I have depression anxiety bipolar and now they have diagnosed me with adhd, everything really finally makes sense for the years and years my life has been a revolving door. I just feel alone and lost, people that don't have these issues have no idea the daily demons you have to face, is there anybody else out there?

    You certainly are not alone.  Depression and Anxiety are very common co-disorders of ADHD.  And sometimes the bipolar diagnosis is not true due to the other symptoms.  So its always worth taking a look at the difference between the two.  Here are a couple of links for that.

     Oh, just in case you start any stim meds.  Prozac and Paxil do not mix with your normal stim meds.   I mention this because Prozac is such a common anti-depressant medication.  See this link - http://www.corepsych.com/2012/09/adhd-insights-prozac-paxil-ampehtamines/
