... labetalol . However, my Strattera does not seem to be working as well as it has previously. During my schooling, I took Ritalin and Adderall. Both help significantly with impulse control and focus, as an adult I switched to Strattera. Can I try a stimulant prescription, are there other options to help me control my ADHD?

I have high blood pressure and take hydrochlorothiazide (basically a water pill) to manage it, as well as an Ayurvedic herb. I'll keep that herb anonymous as this website is allopathic driven and I don't want to upset anyone's apple cart.
I take Adderall (30 mg) and my blood pressure isn't affected. As well, I try to live a healthy life (I hate the word "lifestyle" [lol]). I don't drink, have never smoked, don't use street drugs, and am a vegetarian. At my age (75) I also try to exercise a little--not fanatically.
Bottom line is I would consult my physician. Perhaps a physical exam might help as well. You're entitled to have a med that works with ADHD.
