Thanks for your response.

My usual BP is somewhere in the area of 90/60, so not something I generally worry about. When I'm stressed, it goes to around 95/68.

Today, though, it was 129/89.

Again, lots of variables...

Thank you for your review. I'm actually not going to try any of the methylphenidates, and Strattera wouldn't be a good choice, either. Pretty much between Dexedrine, and Adderall, and my pdoc apparently doesn't want to prescribe dexedrine to me, although my therapist didn't remember why. (And as an aside, I really like it that my therapist admits to and jokes about her bad memory. Makes it seem much more OK to me not to be perfect.)

But you were able to take the stimulants, even though you also had to take BP medicine? That is good to know -- because this really is the best I've felt in years now, except for the headache...
