POTS: Medications used to treat adhd such as Ritalin or amphetamines or vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) effectively increase norepinephrine & Dopamine levels, thereby increasing vasoconstriction & blood pressure. Central net inhibition can reduce sympathetic outflow through stimulation of a2 adrenoreceptors. Discuss this with your prescribing doc.
