POTS and ritalin


Recommended Posts

No, I have not tried Ritalin but when I have to take Sudafed (Plain kind w/o antihistamine) it revs me up so much I have to take extra beta blocker and xanax to counteract the jitters.

Ritalin passes the blood brain barrier (Unlike Midodrine as they are very much related) but since Midodrine does NOT pass the BBB, most of us do not get the jitters/worsening of tremors that Ritalin and a vast variety of stimulants can cause.

This is way more than you wanted to know wasn't it? :D
