Yeah, i echo someone else on here... Starting taking your BP occasionally. I had a reaction with a med mix with Adderall and didnt' realize that my BP had gone up.
I had to drop adderall for a while and go on BP meds before I went back on.

I'm glad to see someone else having a positive effect from the meds. It is a game changer.

So I started with 10 mg adderall about 3 months ago the first couple of months were great and I was performing like a superhuman. Since last month I’m noticing heart palpitations irrespective of if I take the medication or not. A little terrified because they linger on even after a week or so of not taking the meds

I suspect I have ADHD.

Is anyone on a low dose of Adderall or a similar stimulant, and do you find it helpful/effective?

When I was diagnosed (at 20 yo) I started on Adderall XR and my psychiatrist essentially took a “keep upping the dose until you feel side effects” approach, even though I still saw some benefits at a lower dose. I’m currently unmedicated and am somewhat hesitant to restart, but feel I could see some benefit and better stability with the help of medication.
