Re: Hi Everyone Do we all have ADD/ADHD

btw, when I started on Strattera (an ADHD med, which although not categorized as a stimulant, is notorious for raising your BP and HR), my BP went from 130/90 to 110/70. Go figure. Turns out that anxiety is very common with ADHD, and Strattera had the nice effect of completely annhilating my anxiety/stress, which in turn I suspect is the direct cause of my lowered BP. (resting HR is up slightly though, from an almost-dead high 40's to low 60's) I always attributed the low HR to my cycling, but who knows, it could be something else.

Not really sure what my point is other than maybe if you have ADHD, it might be another pill to add to the cocktail
