4 doctors weighed in:

Does either ritalin (methylphenidate) or nuvigil affect my heart rate when i take these medications? I'm not talking about long-term, i mean the same day i take them.

In brief: Yes and no.

Ritalin (methylphenidate) can increase the heart rate, Nuvigil less likely to.
Your own experience will tell you if/when you measure your pulse.
