Will taking Adderall XR curb your anger and irrationability if you also suffer from bipolar disorder?

It will probably do the opposite actually. adderall is contraindicated in people who have bipolar; basically that means if u have bipolar, dont take amphetamines. the risk of rapid cycling and an increased variation in mood is really high when taking adderall while having bipolar. if anger and irrational thinking accompany your bipolar disorder, stay away from adderall, as these two symptoms are common side effects from it. (especially in those with a preordained mental health condition or emotional lability).
