Possible treatment for bipolar with ADD

I just learned about this treatment today, and wonder if it might help my son. He is 18, and has an abnormal EEG. He suffers from depression, and bouts of rage. HE also suffers from severe ADD. Medications that help the rage and depression make the ADD and confusion worse, and vice versa. Does anyone have any information on the use of this treatment for this type of situation. He is currently on zyprexa and tegretol. They want to add adoral, but he can't tolerate it. At this point, he can not begin to function in life on his own. Any information with an idea where to research this would be greatly appreciated. thanks! Lisa

Re: V-V epsisode after eating



this sounds like my problem. I can't figure out if it's the foods I eat or what, it doesn't seem to matter. I've passed out now 3 times in the last 9 months (this is all new too me, and very scary). I'm afraid of being out somewhere, even working. I've been diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome, which I suppose is all fine and dandy, but the fainting just really is cramping my style. I wish I had some answers for you, but I'm glad I'm not alone, and you're not either. Hopefully, someone out there can help us.
