intuniv and bipolar dr?
ebayaddict posted:
I'm 33 years old, adhd and bipolar. I'm on a bunch of stuff for bipolar and ritalin for the adhd. My problem is that the ritalin is no longer as effective as it has been. I have heard that intuniv is good but have only heard about it in children. I am looking for an alternative to the ritalin (and ritalin la) that is long lasting that I can ask my pdoc about. He has said he likes the ritalin because it doesn't effect moods. Does anyone know anything about intuniv and moods? Also, is it only for children and adolescents? If intuniv isn't an option does anyone know of any other longer lasting meds? I know this is more of an adhd board question but I haven't been able to get much help there. Thanks to all.

Intuniv ,Its a blood pressure pill. They needed a market share for a non stimulant stimulant, onlt treats the HD. I did adderal and dexadrine for adhd for years and dexadrine put on the focus big time. ritalin doent even come close. str8t As in school when b4 i hated school. Stattera , no real adhd likes that crap. "he likes the ritalin because it doesn't effect moods" ? ritalin was just as much as a mood upper to me as adderal minus the calm focus. I want some adderal but I quit all pills , have to stick to it !!!!
