Used to have strong, normal heartbeat but for the past month been weak and faint. Went on a cocaine and adderall binge together recently. EKG was fine?

Please consider seeing a drug counselor and going to NA meetings. Please continue to see your doctor. Peace and good health. ...Read more

Did cocaine about 3 months ago while I was on a lot of adderall. Ever since then been fatigued, short of breath, and have had a faint heartbeat?

Did cocaine about 3 months ago while I was on a lot of adderall. Ever since then been fatigued, short of breath, and have had a faint heartbeat?

Not good 4 your hear: This combination isn't good for your heart. Depending on how much & how long you have been mixing these drugs, you could be developing "contraction band cardiomyopathy", a form of heart failure (heart isn't beating efficiently). I would suggest you see your doctor / cardiologist as soon as you can make an appointment. If you pass out / faint, get to an ER / hospital. Use HealthTap Prime otherwise. ...Read more

Some questions about adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine)? Can I use it if prior history of abuse or heart palpitations?

Probably: I would consult with you physician and potentially a cardiologist. The cardiologist would probably do a ekg and/or echocardiogram to decide if you have any structural or heart rhythm problems. If you don't, you probably can use Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) under a doctor's guidance. But I would ask the doctor about these issues before using. ...Read more

Can Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) negatively affect my heart 6 yrs after stopping? Gave me horrible palpitations when I took it but I continued to take it through college

You should be seen by your doctor or a cardiologist to assess this. It is very unlikely to be a direct consequence of the Adderral you took 6 years ago ...Read more

I'm on metoprolol for rapid heartbeat and chest pain Since ive been on it ive gained 50 pounds and my chestpains have worsened. Should I stop taking it?

Definitely NOT: Without doctor's supervision, and definitely not suddenly. Your body gets used to having stress hormones blocked and sudden withdrawal gets you stressed.
Otherwise, cannot say in your particular case; weight gain is not commonly associated with beta blockers but could be since it does commonly lower how much exercise people do. ...Read more

I am prescribed adderall 20mg bid and recently I have started to have issues turning it off. I cant make myself stop to sleep so I drink until I sleep?

Dangerous situation: Adderal (amphetame) is designed to keep you awake. A dose late in the day should keep you awake. You might talk to your prescribing physician and discuss an earlier and /or lower dose. Alcohol is a poor and dangerous chemical to use for sleep. Plus, it causes more healthy sleep disruption than it helps. Much better to address the cause of your sleep problem. ...Read more
