Reply To: "Backwards" Heart Rate (????)

It’s common for stimulant medication to impact your blood pressure and heart rate. If it’s worse in the afternoon, it may be that your long-acting medication releases more medication into your system at that time.

This is definitely something to talk with your prescribing doctor about as soon as possible.
