Someone with bipolar can take amphetamines but they have to be monitored in the beginning. Yes it can be dangerous to just start popping them whenever you want but if you have a good doctor who is willing to closely monitor you it can work out. I have been seeing my doctor for 17 years.

I'm glad it works for you!! I just meant it can be dangerous for someone with bipolar to take adderall recreationally/not as prescribed. I'm glad you and your doctor were able to work it out
