Provigil causes problems and nuvigill doesn't work. I had a stroke 4 years ago a Bleed. This occured from never diagnosed high blood pressure which is now controlled. I had glacoma that lazer surgery has controlled without drops. What should I take with some safety?
Hi LGR, I'm assuming the doc helping you manage your high blood pressure is also the one prescribing the Adderall and advising you now to try Ritilan... (I suppose it doesn't matter if the scripts are all coming from this doc, as long as you blood pressure doc knows that you're taking a stimulant med for your narcolepsy--he/she definately should!).
You ask which of the two (Adderall and Ritilan) might be safer for you given your blood pressure condition... Both these meds have listed as a possible side effect raising blood pressure slightly--I don't think there's any way to predict which might have less of an effect on you without trailing the med while monitoring your blood pressure to see if there is any rise and if so, how long it lasts. All done with your doc's advice and consent. I'd be surprised if there's a big difference for you between the two, comparing equal doses, but I certainly wouldn't assume that will be the case!
How has the adderall helped you? has it helped you? just interested cause i have an aunt on this med. and she has alot of health problems i dont see her that often last time i saw her i told her i dont think she should take this med. She has real bad heart problems and i know this medication affects the heart.
