adhd and mitral valve prolapse

Posted by sm2010 on January 17, 2004, at 19:35:40

Does anyone have any experience/info about using stimulants with mitral valve prolapse? Adderall has been very helpful for me, but recently it gave me a very rapid heart beat and blood pressure on one occassion. I had it checked out and was diagnosed with mitral valve prolapse (w/minimal regurgitation). The cardiologist said it was not serious and gave me the usual precautions about antibacterial prophylaxis for dental procedures. When I asked if was safe to continue with the amphetamine he said to stop if such episodes continued, but otherwise to perhaps lower the dosage and to further discuss with my psych. I prefer to stay on a stimulant and am considering asking my psych about switching to dexedrine to cut out the peripherally acting l-isomer. Safety is my primary concern. I'm curious if anyone has any thoughts on this.
