Heart problems from adderall

Common Questions and Answers about Heart problems from adderall


5957912 tn?1379936972 Well I have an appt. tomorrow instead of two weeks. I'm going to stop the Adderall. I noticed today that it made me feel like crap. I never took the pentermine today. I just started taking Adderall when the problems started. I threw it away today. I'm not trying to get depended on it anyway. I lived with the symptoms of ADD all my life. I can handle them. The only thing I really hated was I couldn't remember things.
Avatar f tn reduced adderall from 25 mg to 10 mg. Immediate appetite increase and irritability, especially in AM Heart appt wed. 114-120 resting heart rate. said rate was max 160 or 170 on heart monitor ( back when on 17.5 mg, I think). says is too high.
Avatar f tn I got a stent put in. Probably a problem from the high blood calcium, treatment, and blood pressure all mixed together. Getting ablation, too.
Avatar n tn Before I start my question I should prolly make a few points before I do, I smoke, I drink about 2 red bulls per day, and I am currently on adderall 20mg's 2x's per day for add/adhd. I think that this med is killing my heart, I have a background of mitral valve problems in my dad's side of the family. The other day I went to the dr's and had my blood pressure taken, at the time it was 150 over 100.
Avatar f tn some people have had heart problems after being on adderall and some have had strokes and there have also been case where some have died a sudden death. there is also seizures as a side effect from these drugs. don't know what your doctor was thinking when he gave you the adderall and I would stay away from those drugs. try getting something that deals with stress and anxiety.the other drugs can cause stress and anxiety also ,and make things worse your doctor knows that to.
Avatar f tn I can take my adderall with my heart beating normally. Heart rate will not go up because of the adderall. Beta-blockers will stop your heart problems. I would recommend you get put on a beta-blocker. It will make all your heart complications go away.
Avatar f tn Does anyone know if adderall causes heart problems later down the road?
Avatar f tn t really had any problems with it, just the occasional racing heart. Just recently since the generic form of Adderall XR has come out, i have been having some problems. It feels like i am going to have a heart attack.......i thought it would just go away after a few days but it hasn't yet. It feels like my heart is beating so hard, and so fast......and i get a shooting pain sometimes in my jaw.
Avatar n tn your girlfriend needs to tell the doctors what medication she is on, she cannot hide any. the drugs her cardiologist might prescribe might not interact well with her other medications.
798703 tn?1251899062 He then started showing anger troubles,they put him on a med in the afternoon is well!Supposedly he is coming off down from the other med and this is what's causing it.I do not like it at all medicate to medicate? He will also start to see a counselor soon,he has been on the med since last weekend and been okay supposedly,now today there have been 2 outbursts already, i just don't know what to do.I feel i have failed him as a mom!!
636562 tn?1223667445 After yesterday's bizarre heart racing/tingling episode, I laid off the Adderall today. I'm sluggish, slow, and tired but not too terribly bad. Still having heart palpitations. Went home sick at 1:30pm, came home laid in bed all evening/night and slept from 6:00-7:30pm,...woke up and went back to sleep at 10:30pm.
Avatar f tn I am male, 58 years old, with no history of cardiac problems. Is it possible that my previous Adderall use caused the atrial fibrillation that I am currently experiencing?
Avatar m tn Yes Adderall has caused me a lot of problems...mainly with relationships due to the personality change I have when I'm on it. I thought it was the best thing in the world when I started using it but now I usually just do **** I regret. From my experience (four years taking it and swearing it off a million times only to come back to it), Adderall is a bad thing. Sometimes I'm productive on it but sometimes I just look for trouble or get obsessed with really dumb **** or I clean.
Avatar n tn I've been on Adderall XR (Just started 25mg) for a few months now. I'm contemplating taking a EC stack for my workouts which consist of Ephedrine and Caffeine. I am wondering if Ephedrine is ok to take Adderall. I've heard mixed responses from this and would like to know the truth.
Avatar m tn About a few years ago, I had a really bad reaction to caffeine--heart palpitations, rapid heartbeat, high blood pressure--over drinking a 20oz of Mountain Dew. I recently started taking Adderall for ADHD (was diagnosed since I was a child but could never swallow medication until early adulthood), and I thought it was really going to mess with my heart. Funny enough, I tolerate Adderall very well with a nominal increase in BP every so often.
Avatar f tn Took last adderall, and an o.c. Woke up at 3pm it is sunday, matthew was off from both jobs and aaliyah was good. I could not concentrate on anything though. It would've been the perfect day and usually both adderall and o.x.c put me in a good concentrations state to get involved into something, my eyes were straining when i tried to read or write and lacked interest in television.
Avatar n tn however, he has pretty bad comedowns from adderall, and gets achy and restless and generally miserable. in the past year this has caused him to turn to marijuana to help make the comedowns less miserable. problem is, it's become a vicious cycle and now he's dependent on this habit of adderall and then marijuana. it's affecting his health and his grades, and i'm not sure what can be done. are there other drugs similar to adderall without such comedown side effects??
Avatar f tn Are you taking Adderall XR or Adderall? Is it a capsule or a tablet?
Avatar m tn So this post is going to be really long and I would really appreciate it if you read it and give me some feedback. I have been having heart problems now for more than a year and they are physically and mentally destroying me. I can't take it any longer.
Avatar n tn I am 26 years old and was diagnosed with GERD about a year ago. I take Adderall, as well as prilosec on a daily basis to control my acid reflux. I have noticed, however that in the past year of having been diagnosed with GERD, my heart burn has gone away, but I experience a lot of constipation, mucous in my stool, and trapped gas in my upper abdomen.
Avatar n tn Then I was put on Adderall and from the start my heart went insane. Heart rate in the 160s for a two or three days just from one small dose and would have chest pain and shortness of breath. Everything I read online about my reaction was discussing people who were Adderall addicts and were taking massive amounts...
Avatar m tn I want to know if this is safe because of my prior heart problems, since it has been fixed and I have had no recurrences. Thanks for all input, the adderall has changed my life tremendously and I just want to make sure it is safe, especially since it is such a small dose.
896568 tn?1241642874 t tried to take you off of some of your medications. Everyone knows that when you mix uppers (Adderall) and downers (xanax, suboxone), your heart doesn't know whether to speed up or slow down, which can result in severe heart and respiratory problems.
Avatar m tn Adderall or no Adderall is having a heart-rate of 95-98bpm dangerous...cause problems down the road? I'm still under 100 so I can't imagine it should be of too much concern but I did want to get some opinions. If I was over 100 I'd worry and possibly stop the medication. I've heard from a lot of people that their HR initially increased when first started Adderall but reverted back to normal after a few months (once their body got used to the medication).
Avatar n tn I have been having chest pains and palpatations for over 10 years. I used to go to the ER when this happened, but stopped as every EKG came back normal. My sister died at age 28 of a heart attack due to high choleterol and birth conrtol pills. About 4 years ago I had severe palpatations and went to a cardiolgist. He did a stress test and EKG and it was fine. Two years later I was having chest pains but the palpitations were not as bad. I just started taking Adderall at the time.
Avatar f tn i myself think u r having panic and anxiety attacks , but with ur family having so much heart problems it would be good to have a heart specialist ck u out. the stress from ur mother is alot, trying to stay focused on school is another, my family has alot of heart trouble i have heart trouble my self.
5717054 tn?1372958545 im new so if im in wrong place sorry bear with me please.
