High Blood Pressure and ADHD/ADD

No hope for us with both is there? All the meds up BP don't they (including the new non-stimulate one)

Re: High Blood Pressure and ADHD/ADD

Sometimes docs will prescribe blood pressure meds for ADHD.

I take Atenenol for my blood pressure as well as to help ease some of my anxiety. I also take Adderall Xr. My blood pressure gets high when I am stressed so my doctor thought the atenenol would work well with my ADD meds to help. So far it has helped a lot and I take a very small dose of it.

Re: High Blood Pressure and ADHD/ADD

Consuming fish oil can combat both AD/HD symptoms and hypertension.

Re: High Blood Pressure and ADHD/ADD

I have had high blood pressure for a long time (I take Atenolol) and was just recently diagnosed with ADD. The Dr. put me on Concerta 36 mg twice a day and it works great! Blood pressure is doing just fine!
