Bipolar diagnosis

sbjon posted:
My 10 year old son's psychiatrist suspected biploar disorder and started him on 2mg of Abilify 3 weeks ago. He was previously diagnosed as ADHD/ODD (Opositional defiance disorder), but we thought there was something more to it and suspected it might be bipolar disorder. We have another appointment with her in a week and will get her opinion then on his diagnosis then. Until then, I just wanted to have any opinion about whether bipolar is a likely diagnosis given that after 3 weeks on 2mg of ability we have seen a total turnaround (1000% improvement) in his behavior at home and school, no more fits, no more tantrums, no more being off-task at school. Thanks for your input.
