adderall IR vs XR? Bipolar diagnosis.

Just a quick question for all of you peachy ADD'ers. I am finally settling into Adderall IR-but am having difficulties keeping up with my dose at work. An example is I had an impromptu meeting and it was 10am-I certainly wasn't gonna pop a pill in front of my boss So I have considered asking my doc if I can go on Adderall XR. When he first perscribed the Adderall he was worried about it activating insomnia and revving up my bipolar. I am type 1 more manic than depressed cycles.

I haven't had any bad reaction sleep wise, because I "crash" after 6pm and sleep very heavy. What do you guys think about XR versus continuing my IR twice a day?
