      Yes it can be bipolar (Ihave 2 of them) but it can alos be other things. The Adderall may be activating here and you may have to try another ADHD med. Andif it is bipolar stimulants can make things worse. I would take to a mental health profesional that works with kids. It make take a while to find one who will listen to you.

      I actually never heard of it before the dr told me and no I don’t have any others, just her. She is very sensitive to loud noises and is very intelligent actually much smarter than other kids her age. Since age two she has been able to work a dvd, vcr, computer and tv. She understands complicated concepts and when she is having a good day is a joy. Her drastic mood swings and behaviors are getting worse and that is why I sought professional help for her and she began treatment with Clonidine and Adderall at age 3. We cannot keep a sitter because about the second time when she is comfortable she begins to act out.She loses friends her age because she gets aggressive after a short peroid of time and even though she is smaller she is very strong for her size and age. One time we had a friend watch her while I took my husband to the dr. for his Emphyseuma and in our short absense she nearly knocked out a 75 year old man! She wanted him to go buy her a candy bar now and when he did not she argued and he leaned over to pick her up and she head bunted him and almost knocked him out! Once the fit was over she seemed to not remember it. Does it sound like bi-polar?
