Correlation between ADD &  Bipolar

I''m diagnose with Bipolar Mood Disorder. Is there a possibility that there''s a correlation between ADD &  bipolar? Might my problem with concentration, forgetfulness, etc be part of Bipolar? I''m using Cymbalta, Epitec and Welburtin 4 the Bipolar, will Concerto be helpful 4 the ADD?

Im not sure there's good enough evidence to link Bipolar with ADD, with either of them causing the other. More than one diagnosis is actually much more common than people think whether speaking psychiatrically or physically.
Only your own shrink, conducting that orchestra of meds, could properly answer your last questionm because it depends on doses, interactions, and his reasons for choosing each of those drugs. COncerta being a stimulant, might help but could also upset the balance otherwise being created. Ask your prescribing doc.
