I have been diagnosed with ADD, depression disorder, and bipolar II disorder.
Hi there... I don't think I can take a jab at your question, as I have never consumed an antidepressant myself, but I'm curious about your question. What specifically IS a depressant drug, and in what capacity is it used for you... something which treats ADHD? That concept baffles me, as it seems strange that something which would be a depressant would be given to a person with bipolar in the first place... you'd imagine that such a thing would bring you down, unless it were the case that you were manic, and needed to be stabilized by a depressant? Perhaps if you can be specific about what drug you are referring to here, somebody can answer this. Sorry to have been of no help.
I don`t really have an answer I`m new to this process but I have the same diagnoses and when you talk of depressant are you talking pot? Because I know that`s a temptation for me also. Sometimes not lately but at different times when I just could not stand my mood even after doing everything I`m told to do, it`s like I need a break and the depressant has done this... unfortunately I don`t know why either. Good question I sure hope someone can oneday offer something to help, this situation can be hell. Hang in there and god bless
