Asked: Diagnosed with bipolar disorder?
After seeing a family doctor today for what I thought was a sleep disorder, I was diagnosed with adult onset ADHD, sever anxiety disorder and severe bipolar disorder. I'm a 22 year old mother of two with no insurance. My doctor suggested the name of a therapist to me and a list of drugs to research. I hardly get by as it is, I have no money for counseling. I did research the list of medications like I was told, and a lot of them scare me. I'm simply at a loss.

Asked: Can I still join the U.S Military with these health problems?
Ok so I'm a 16 year old female that's 5'7, I wanna join the US. Army or National Guard this December, once I turn 17. I have a sleep disorder(sleep apnea) possibly asthma & ADHD, and I need glasses. I havent gotten a exam for the ADHD cause I heard if you do have it, that disqualifies you from joining any US Military branch….true? I'm pretty sure I do have it, all my teachers say I should go get checked for that….and also I have anger management issues. Can those be reasons why the US Military might not want me? Help? Thank you.
Asked: Is This Insomnia or is it a symptom of ADHD?
I'm 20 yr old and am sick of not being able to sleep!!!
I just can't sleep… ever.
At night time i'll go to my bed but nothing i do helps me to settle down.
I have ADHD so my mind races a lot and i can never wind down properly. I can't get my mind to go blank as i always have thoughts buzzing around my head.
I drink caffeine but not a lot and not at night time.
I don't have a job so thankfully i have nowhere to be so i'm not in much trouble in terms of being late for anything, but it would be nice to be able to sleep like everyone else.
I know Insomnia is when you are tired and want to go to bed but can't, and i do feel this way a lot, but sometimes i just straight-out don't want to go to bed. but i think it's because i know that if i do i wont sleep.
Is this what insomnia is?????
From what you've read…
Would you say i have Insomnia?????
Or is it just my ADHD making me too mentally hyperactive????
Asked: Scared of never being able to sleep…anxiety? Help?
Hi, I have generalized anxiety disorder, and know that insomnia is common with it, but this morning when I woke up, I feel as if I did t wake up..as if maybe I just had my eyes closed all night and my mind drifted off, but I never truly slept…now I am absolutely scared that I will never fall asleep and them doe of exhaustion…I feel even if there is nothing wrong with my brain run the fear will keep me awake…I've been trying to sleep now but simply can't..when I close my eyes my mind is racing extremely fast and seems to drift off, which should mean I am falling asleep but I don't feel it..I don't know if the fear is keeping me from fully falling asleep or there's something wrong into brain…I'm still scared that I won't ever fall asleep now..I just want sleep..even just a few hours would be amazing..just to reassure myself that I can still sleep…everytime I close my eyes as I said before my mind is racing between random thoughts(which was pretty normal in my falling asleep process before) and then fear comes in and I get this cold sensation run through my head the fear that runs through my mind is ill never fall asleep, or that the random thoughts going through my head meansI'm truly losing a grip on reality or something and it really scares me..is this all anxiety? Will I ever sleep again? What should I do? I feel so alone…do anxiety patients usually go through something like this?…someone please help..
Asked: Adderall then Xanax then Adderall?
Background – I am bipolar, ADHD, Chronic Anxiety, PTSD, horrible insomnia (from the PTSD) and have very low blood pressure so the Adderall helps with the ADHD and the BP issue (on 60mgs of
Adderall per day – the highest we've seen my BP get to is 105/70…….) and with being able to function at my very corporate job on very (usually an hour or 2 if that per night) of sleep. I have been on these meds for a long time and have never had a problem coming on or off them if I don't need to be on one or the other or both. I take a new – to – the – market depression med which is specifically for MDD (Major Depressive Disorder) & Manics, but have taken everything & anything from Zoloft to Prozac to Wellbutrin to you name it over the years.
Currently I am on 30mg immediate release Adderrall in the a.m. and 30mg immediate release in early afternoon, and then later afternoon I switch to Xanax (which I'm prescribed 3 bars a day – so 6mgs a day total).
My question is kind of opposite everything I'm able to find thus far. I've seen a lot of people posting questions/concerns about taking Adderall then Xanax later to come down – but haven't found my question yet On occasion, there's a need to take my normal 60mgs of Adderalls during days, then my normal 6mgs of Xanax, but then a late night, last minute, highly urgent, etc.., work project occasionally will pop up, thus making me wonder if I'm able to take 1 more Adderall at that point if necessary for the abililty to come "back up" and be the alert level I need to be when those types of work requests come in?? I've never had any bad reactions going from Adderrall to Xanax whatsoever, I am just wondering about being "up" then "down" then "up" again on occasion….. anyone know??
