Hey everyone!I have noticed that my blood pressure is higher when I take me meds for my adhd. I take adderall . I am very concerned. When I check it on my meds im 130- 140. When im off of them i range between 110- 120. I am freaking out! It need my meds to focus but I would so rather not take them to protect my kidneys!

My friend is a T1 from 2 years old, and is now 49.
Whenever he gets 'worked up' about things, it takes him at least a week or two to settle down calmly again.
