Adderall prescription & Bi-polar?

Just researched Bi-Polar disorder and I'm 95%+ sure that I have the disorder...I'm currently on Adderall because of the fact that I faced a lot of the symptoms of being BP, mostly fatigue. What's the next step after self-diagnosis? Besides going to the doctor, what more can I do?
I'm 25 and have never had a job because of this, yet I've never been prescribed to anything or mentioned any negative effects to my doctor, ever.
I should have realized this a long time ago judging by the symptoms. I've been to college and tried to take classes about 6 separate times without success. Although I'm typically smarter than most people I'm surrounded by, I feel like it's impossible to actually complete a semester of classes.
What meds are the best ones to take?
What do I do in order to make up for lack of being able to work?
