High & Low Blood Pressure board


I'm taking 20mg of Lotrel everyday, I used to take Attenalol, but it wasn't as effective after taking it for an extended period of time.

Here's the deal. I have ADD and am currently taking Provogil after taking Adderall, Concerta and Strattera (all at different times). So far the Provogil has had the most effect on my BP, the last four readings since I've increased my dosage to 200mg/daily are:

180/127
163/115
172/124
176/119

I guess my question is, is it worth it? I'm not sure what I should or should not be doing about this.
Thanks Penny and Flowergirl-

The most recent ADD med I'm is a non-stimulant, so that's why I'm surprised that it's raised my BP so much. Yeah, my high BP is just hereditary, but I've always been to keep it pretty much under control. The past couple of months, trying to get the right med for my ADD has just sent my BP on a roller coaster ride.

Anyway, both of you offer some good advice and I guess I should see a specialist. I've talked to my PCP and she just wants to increase my Lotrel and my Psych wants to switch me to another stimulant. Maybe I should get them all in one room and tell them to get their heads on straight.
