Hi everyone, my 10 yr old daughter has been on Adderall XR for over 4 years now and it works great! But she still has moments when she changes from happy to violent in a matter of seconds. She destroys her belongings, throws things at me, screams and hits. I cannot control her at all when she gets like this and her pediatrician thinks she should be checked for bipolar. Does anyone else have issues like I am dealing with or have a child with both ADHD and bipolar? If so do you have any suggestions on how to handles these out bursts?
