Is it my ADHD pills that is raising my heart rate?

Is it my ADHD pills that is raising my heart rate?

Some physicians do an ekg before starting stimulants. However, fda has not mandated that yet. If there is a family history of heart problems, then there is a cause for concerns. Non stimulants, like strattera (atomoxetine) are a different issue. ...Read more
