Re: Adderall IR And Increased Heart Rate

I’ve had some mild heart palpitations on higher doses but only when it was wearing off. I’ve never experienced a tachycardia while on adderall. I was once hospitalized for a major cardiac arrhythmia and tachycardia which was caused by extreme stress and anxiety before beginning adderall though.

My resting heart rate was over 200 bpm and totally out of any sort of rhythm. I got scared when it alarmed the ER staff once they hooked me up to an EKG. It was definitely no fun.

The worst part was it occurred on the 89th day of my employment. My health insurance kicked in after 90 days. Medical bills for over 20k almost gave me a heart attack!

There are no other “differentials” that I can determine.

I take 40mg of Adderall IR

When I was at the doctors last, my resting heart rate was: 121
