    DH was diagnosed with bipolar today

    I posted a few weeks ago that I thought my DH might be bipolar. Well, he saw a psychiatrist today, and the psych doctor said he has ADD and bipolar. The doctor put him on 30 mg of Adderall and for the bipolar, he put him on Lamictal. Can anyone tell me what to expect with these drugs? How long will it take for him to start getting better? He has to see the doctor again in a month, and the doctor also wants him to go to counseling. I'm just wondering what to expect and what kind of changes I'll see with the meds. Thanks so much.
