It is highly unlikely to have both, rather than Bipolar Affective Disorder.
It is commonly believed by persons with a childhood diagnosis of ADD/ADHD, that their later diagnosis of Bipolar Affective Disorder is an incorrect diagnosis and that they suffer from ADD/ADHD and depression despite skilled clinicians identifying the behavior.
The reason for this is simple: ADD/ADHD is a controversial diagnosis often made on pediatric patients by General Practioners untrained in pediatric psychiatry. While a real and debilitating ailment in actual suffers, ADD/ADHD is diagnosed in more than 3 times as many children as sufferers later appear in the adult population (meaning either that spontaneous remission occurs or that a mental illness can be outgrown by some, but not others- both of which are implausible).
The issue comes down to wishful thinking and drug seeking behavior: the drugs of choice for the treatment of ADD/ADHD are amphetamines. And the patients are habituated to them (which is medical speak for addicted). Once a diagnosis of Bipolar Affective Disorder is made, these drugs are strictly counter-indicated, and slowly withdrawn.
The patient perfers the amphetamine (a drug of abuse which they are habituated to) over the standard regimine of treatment, and insists on the prior diagnosis in an attempt to secure their preferred drug.
Contrary to what many believe, manic depression is not "serious depression" or "real depression", although it is very serious and real. Mania is the opposite of depression. According to the dictionary, it is "an excessively intense enthusiasm, interest, or desire." A manic-depressive is someone who cycles between mania and depression. It is the same as bipolar disorder. Manic depression is also known as Bipolar 1 or Bipolar 2. Its a complicated mental problem that is treated with medication. MANIC DEPRESSION is now called Bi Polar as in 2 poles of mood, lows and highs. I myself am asufferer and hate the WORD MANIC thankfully it now has a much kinder title. Indeed myself and others do have severe depressions. The highs differ and I have hypomania, mild highs. This is a severe illness many loose touch with reality. Depression is the opposite. Try on line for list of symptoms. good luck
No. Zoloft is in the same class of anti-depressants as Prozac and would not be helpful. Depressive episodes of bipolar disorder are treated differently than major depression. Prozac and Topamax may/may not be helping the situation. Lamictal is considered first line for depressive symptoms of bipolar I disorder. If Lamictal (lamotrigine) is not helpful for controlling depressive symptoms, usually an atypical antipsychotic is added, such as quetiapine (Seroquel). The term "bipolar depression" is fairly general and is important to a response about treatment. Treatment for depressive episodes of bipolar depression differ from treatment of manic episodes. I would recommend that you look at the Texas Implementation of Medication Algorithms for Bipolar I Disorder in order to tailor therapy for your patient's symptoms.
