Strattera and high blood pressure

Common Questions and Answers about Strattera and high blood pressure


Avatar f tn Starts out with my former medicine, strattera, but when I would take it I felt my heart was out of control and my blood pressure went up. Now on wellbutrin for about a week but I feel foggy and it is causing worse ibs. Not sure if that side effect will go away but giving it a try. My question is, if anyone can answer, why was I able to take strattera as a child with 0 side effects and then high heart rate etc now.
Avatar f tn My 7 year old son was diagnosed with ADHD when he was 4 and has been taking strattera! We added resperidal to try and help his moods last winter. After needing to increase it and having him wet during the day we switched to abilify! I think it is working somewhat although he still has his meltdowns! The dr prescribed concerta now along with the abilify and dropping the strattera.
Avatar f tn Tell your doctor if you or a family member has a history of high or low blood pressure, increased heart rate, heart or blood vessel disease or structural heart defects. When on Strattera, tell your doctor right away if you have chest pain, shortness of breath, or fainting, as these may be signs of heart-related conditions that may be life threatening. In rare cases, Strattera can cause severe liver problems.
Avatar f tn Would taking a klonopin with the strattera in the am help eleviate those symptoms? My pharamist thinks my blood pressure is getting to high. Would a klonopin combat that so I can at least perform at 100%?
Avatar f tn Get training and read everything you can about Type 1 and the metabolism Adderall constricts the blood vessels, causing an increase in blood pressure and a decrease in circulation. Both can severely increase the health risks already imposed by the diabetes. Take care, best of luck.
Avatar m tn I have breakthrough moods I sometimes treat with Ativan as needed but my life turned around and haven't been in hospital for 10 yrs... There is hope! I also just found out blood. Pressure med Inderal LA makes me suicidal too... Some of our brains are way more. Sensitive!
Avatar m tn primarily treatment of heart problems (i.e. high blood pressure), anxiety, and migraines. This medication is a good choice to decrease physical effects of anxiety and can be taken on an as-needed basis before stressful events. 2. BuSpar (buspirone, psychoactive anti-anxiety drug): primarily used for short-term anxiety treatment. Not very sedating and not addictive at all. 3. A benzodiazepine (xanax, valium, librium; psychoactive anti-anxiety drug): primarily for short-term anxiety relief.
Avatar n tn I have high Triglycerides and Cholesterol. I started taking a new drug called Strattera a few months ago. I have had heart palpitations, chest pain, my blood pressure went from low to above normal. If I over-exert myself my chest starts hurting and if I lay down it feels much better. I am wondering if I have Angina?
455103 tn?1240889845 I gave into some SI to release my rage and started feeling nauseous which made me curious about my blood pressure. My hubby has a professional machine here. I had to take it 3 times though and it still kept beeping at me "no pulsation/low pulsation"... my BP was 167 over 103 the first time (the last time it was 187 over 99) The first time my pulse was 106 and the "mean" read 132 (the last time my pulse was down to 99 and the mean was 127).
673186 tn?1225987525 Yes, 140 mgs is a very very large dose and most people would feel minor or severe overdose symptoms, extreme sweating, vomiting, diarrhea, rapid heartbeat, high anxiety, high blood pressure, jittery. It can be extremely. I experienced that once and it was horrible.
211940 tn?1267884866 I don't want to second guess my doctors, but at the same time, the constant pain, the resultant very high blood pressure (even though I've been on bp medication) which I think comes from the high stress of living with this terrible pain in my upper arm, elbow, and shoulder requires that I search on my own, like everyone here is also doing, for an answer that will work for me. One thing about my doctors, they are very slow to move towards surgery. I used to think that was good.
Avatar n tn This list will come in one more than one post! For your information it was compiled in March of 2008 but hopefully it is more updated than your current list. Hope it helps.

Avatar f tn I have high cholesterol and high triglycerides also. I take wellbutrin XL 150 mg, vyvanse 50 mg and and strattera 80 mg. I developed swelling in my fingers in both hands this winter. It is perfectly symmetrical and located in the fatty tissue before my knuckle where my finger meets my hand. They are reddish plaque looking areas. The doctor referred to them as red, erythematous swelling (I included a picture for you to see).
Avatar n tn Albuterol can increase heart rate and blood pressure, and Strattera can potentiate both of these reactions - i.e., it can make the reactions more pronounced. Diagnosis of any emotional or menatl disorder is performed by applying standard diagnostic criteria and, if diagnostic critera are met, ruling out other possible explanations for the symptoms. ADHD sometimes occurs without the presence of any additional conditions, but it also exists alongside other conditions (e.g.
Avatar m tn High cortisol at night is Cushing's syndrome but that is not in keeping with the weight loss exactly. Is your blood pressure high? That signals more about the adrenaline and cortisol.
Avatar f tn I am older 10 years older than you, and I have many health problems related to arthritis, fibro, and disc problems in neck and back. I also have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, hypothyroid, and thanks to all of this stuff, since about age 40 I started gaining weight and now you can add very overweight. Of course, the doctors blame everything on the 30-40 extra lbs. I'm carrying around, but I felt lousy for a long time.
Avatar m tn I'm on as high of a dose as I can do without my heart blowing out a valve. I take high blood pressure medication to counteract the dose I'm on now (60mg sa tabs generic). I'm still not able to hold a job because of my symptoms but I'm very thankful for the help my medication does give me. Dexidrine used to work much better but they took that off the market or something. I tried provigil, stratera, wellbutrin, lexapro, celexa, Prozac, paxil adderal, and concerta.
Avatar f tn i take all kinds of heart meds, my heart use to skip and race and my heart dr put me on cardiazem 240mg 1x aday that slowed my heart down but it is for high blood pressure as well. so i think u need to calm down and get a grip i know its scary but if u dont u can bring these attacks on. go for a walk or read a book when u feel it comeing on . think of something that makes u happy. good luck ur gonna be alright stop stressing i know yea right thats easy for me to say but ive been there.
Avatar n tn Lack of sensation in the left lower leg Random twitching in body parts (can be either side of body) Numbness across the chest (both sides) and towards the left shoulder and arm VERY rarely pressure or numbness in the left face or head (still sometimes the other side) VERY rarely feeling of panic Finding it hard to focus on something without eyes twitching or moving sometimes (not always) Trembling in hands (not always) Sharp pains sometimes in random places of the head Sometimes get sharp ches
704043 tn?1298060444 Good reasons for not prescribing it might be if the person has poorly controlled high blood pressure or a history of substance abuse. Otherwise, I don't see why any doctor couldn't prescribe it for you.
1330182 tn?1279819500 I forgot to mention that I have a constant low blood pressure.. My blood pressure usually averages around 90/60 When it dips lower, I feel like a sloth!! I am very active at home and at work but for the past 8 years, my fatigue has slowed me down considerably.. I blame part of it on the SSRI's.... Those meds (zoloft, prozac) made me turn into a zombie!! That wasn't very helpful when I was working as a landscaper! lol!! I feel so much better mentally without them!
1203809 tn?1265608819 Is there any other new drugs on the market that work better than Adderall? Can I ask him to prescribe another drug to help with the high blood pressure and tenseness associated with stimulants? One last thing, I've noticed dexedrine worked even better for me (tried spansules through friends), should I try starting back up on Adderall, or should I tell my doc that Dexedrine has a more therapeutic effect?
Avatar f tn I was given a ton of Pitocin in a early induction due to low amniotic fluid and high blood pressure, but ended up in a c-section b/c her hand was over her head. So I never got to the pushing part... unfortunately. So upset still to this day about having a c-section. He did believe it would most likely resolve in 3-5 years (he said it takes "forever" to get better), but it was his opinion it would most likely be better eventually.

Avatar f tn This is mainly helpful to patients experiencing high blood pressure while lying flat, but low blood pressure while standing. If his symptoms are primarily associated with low blood pressure only, it may not be very helpful. It's not unusual for mornings to be the most difficult though. Something that may help is to have a bottle of Gatorade by his bed at night. That way he will have something to drink before he gets out of bed in the morning.
Avatar n tn for me it was a combination of not being around women for a very long time and high blood pressure. My testosterone levels dropped and the urologist said that that is where the phrase "if you dont use it you lose it" came from. (you need to get your hormone levels up as well to keep him going..

152264 tn?1280358257 , they could have been MS but could have been due to migraine, high blood pressure/cholesterol, etc. The radiologist wrote that there was "clearing" of some lesions and appearance of others, but one neurologist said this could be due to different "slices," and neither neurologist thought the MRI findings significant. Both of them talked about a spinal tap and one attempted it, but could not get any fluid out (I have lumbar scoliosis), and later said I didn't need one.
