ADD and Bipolar Disorder 

There are some similarities and overlap in the symptoms of ADD / ADHD and bipolar disorder. Both may include hyperactive or restless behaviors, distractibility, poor concentration, impulsivity and racing thoughts. Both are also thought to have a strong genetic link. Both can result in sleep disturbances, poor social relationships, feelings of anxiety, depression, frustration and self-doubt. Both can significantly impact daily functioning. In addition, ADHD and bipolar disorder commonly occur together, making it even more difficult to tease them apart.
The main symptom of ADHD is a disturbance in attention. The main symptom of bipolar disorder is a disturbance in mood.”
