Default Adderall side effects (adult ADHD)

My pdoc diagnosed me with ADHD over the summer. I'm not really sure if I have it, or if it is just manic behavior since I'm bipolar.

I am on a ton of psych meds for the bipolar and panic disorder/PTSD. I'd like to get down to less, but that's beside the point.

I am wondering if Adderall XR has a side effect of increasing sex drive or if this is just a sign of bipolar mania. Ever since I started Adderall, my sex drive has re-appeared, sometimes to the extent it is lasting hours & hours. It usually happens to me in the daytime when the Adderall dose is still in effect or shortly afterwards.

Not that I'm complaining to have a sex drive back. I'm just wondering if it's linked with the Adderall.

Bupropion XL 150 mg, Seroquel 400 mg, Lamictal 400 mg, Clonazepam 1 mg 4/day, Clonidine 0.3 mg, Propanolol 10 mg 3/day, Buspar 30 mg 2/day, Adderall 40 mg, Trazodone 25 mg, Protonix 20 mg (ulcer) , Gabapentin 600 mg (fibro), Tizandine 4 mg 4/day (fibro)

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
two roads diverged in a wood, and I -
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
