I would stay away from any of the stimulant meds for ADD, that doesn't sound like what you have anyway. All of your symptoms sound as if from bipolar, still not treated effectively yet. A combo of an AD and mood stabalizer is the best route for that...trials of medications can take years to get it right unfortunately.

Do you keep a mood diary to see what meds have helped at what doses, etc. YOu have to do this to see if anything works and if so at what dose. Tweaking doses and combinations of meds is very complicated. Most docs do not keep all of that straight withth number of patients they are seeing, who could. Psychiatry is much more complicated than medicine as there are no tests to follow, just what the patient says and I don't remember anything that happens to me unless I write it down. The docs can only go on what we tell them. I would think the best docs have their patients keep records of these things else it is not very productive of anyone's time.

Therapy is always a good thing if you can afford it or have insurance that will pay for it. Even better may be a psych APRN (Advanced Practice RN) that can do therapy and prescribe meds for you.
