hello all, i am looking for some information. my son is 15 and has been re-diagnosed with adhd and bi-polar, how this is i dont know as they have similarities and can be confused easily. anyway when he was young he was given ritilin and dexidrine nd some other meds which only made him worse and violent. my son is now in the hospital with the diagnosis of adhd, bipolar, odd/cd, ad/rad. they are giving him zyprexia and adderall. he has been on zyprexia before and it helped alot but not enought (as his personality has not been altered by meds) if he is on the zyprexia for a fure days and they add the adderall how fast should we expect results? the hospital says he has had 1 pill and is improved dramatically. i have a hard time believing that but anyone who has a child on this may be able to help me understand how "1 pill can fix him" as the nurses say. please e-mail me as i am so confused. thank you and i hope i didnt confuse all of you with my explanation.
