Ritalin for high blood pressure

Boy, I am going to start a hugh controversy with this thread but here goes anyway ...

For years my blood pressure has been 130+ / 90 on bp med (Atenonol). So borderline has been the best we could do even with diet and exercise. Had a family doctor appointment today. Blood pressure 122/78 pulse 60. Not bad for 53 year old geezer a hour and a half after downing 20 megs of Ritalin. Eh? So help me I am telling the truth. I swear my blood pressure DROPPED once I started Ritalin.
