My son just started tenex for adhd & is also on focalin & trileptol. How does it not mess with his blood pressure? He is almost 8 years old
It can lower their blood pressure especially if they tend to run low anyway. My son took clonidine which is a similar drug and is also used for blood pressure but he was fine and tolerated it with no problems. The stimulant medication kept him from sleeping and these kinds of medicines can really help them sleep better. You need to be sure that your child stays well hydrated and doesnt become overheated because this can make incidence of low blood pressure and low heart rate worse.
