Reply To: Diagnosed in 20 minutes as not ADHD


I literally just had this exact same issue come up. I’ve been prescribed abilify and am majorly apprehensive about accepting the diagnosis as bipolar or taking these new medications after a half hour skype session with someone who’s never met me. Like yes, I do have periods of hyperactivity that get better or worse as time goes on, but I’m literally always hyperactive. There was not a single day in my life where I was not exhibbiting ADHD symptoms. Unless I’m always some degree of Hypomanic this diagnosis makes no sense to me.There’s a chance I’ll totally toss the meds if I don’t like how I feel on them.
