I have inattentive ADD and I have hypertension. For over ten years I have been taking a blood pressure regimen of losartan, hydrochlorothiazide and amlodipine along with Adderall and dextroamphetamine for the adult ADD. I have had no problems. I have, however, had to withhold the hypertension from my psychiatrist. She routinely asks what other medicines have I been taking and I answer aspirin vitamins and once atorvastatin. The ADD medicine is invaluable to my life and I don't want to be taken off because of hypertension issue. Is it allowable for a person with controlled hypertension 130/85 to be treated with stimulant medicines simultaneously for treatment of ADD?
I just started a few weeks ago on adderall... I told my physician that I was on bp medication and also have a high pulse rate to begin with. He prescribed another rx but insurance denied so I'm on adderall and was told to monitor bp... so far no adverse reactions... fingers crossed!
