Taking zyprexa and paxil for bipolar disorder for concentration. Advised to take ADD test. Correct?

I am taking low doses of zyprexa and Paxil for bipolar disorder. I am 63 and have trouble with concentration. The dr. Thinks I may have undiagnosed ADD. I am nervous about taking meds For ADD,if I am in fact tested to be positive,for fear it will have an adverse effect on what I am already taking. What do you think?

HI
Thank for asking to HCM
Nothing to loose in going through the test OF ADD( Attension deficit test) if it turned strongly positive then can be treated accordingly and if turned negative than you have to celebrate it, just go ahead with full confident that it will be alright, have nice day.
