Any medication that acts as a reuptake inhibitor of dopamine or noradrenaline (which Vyvanse does) can activate bipolar. The treatment of bipolar always comes first and once mood stability is assured, see what is left over and, of course, close monitoring by your doctor. I think therapy and understanding is very important. Bipolar trumps ADHD.

Always speak to your doctor before making any changes to medications. Dr. Jain provides advice generically and not for any one person. Advice does not constitute a therapeutic relationship or promise of care. Please consult the privacy policy for more information.
