Hi All. I was diagnosed ADHD (inattention) last week including taking a Qb Check (scored 99 so that makes me well into the spectrum). But the specialist couldn't issue me with meds, only recommend some, saying i need to check with my 'cardiologist' first.
Three years ago I was treated for carotid artery dissection (I'm 60 years old), since when I've been on daily doses of statins, blood pressure tablets and aspirin. My heart is fine and so is blood pressure (122/59 yesterday).
So finally to my question: has anyone also had a problem obtaining ADHD meds because of possible side-effect on heart/ blood pressure? If so, what alternatives did you have?
