I would post this question in the Ask An Expert section and let Dr. J answer it. From what I understand most ADHD medications do raise your blood pressure, but what I’ve heard, in varying forms from a number of Doctors, is that unless your blood pressure is already a problem, the increase is no more than one would get with drinking coffee. And of course, people with high blood pressure are often told to cut back, or eliminate coffee.
