Last month I explored the benefits of caffeine versus Ritalin as concentration aids. I regret to report that I have stopped taking Ritalin due to an unwelcome increase in blood pressure. Caffeine is now my sole drug of choice until I see my psychiatrist again for refills. I miss the morning focus I was able to achieve with Ritalin but it’s not worth the 10-30 point rise in blood pressure I was experiencing. Perfect blood pressure has been my only healthy trait in life since I’m obese and mentally ill.
Overall, life is looking up while I’m keeping my blood pressure down. Thanks to better eating habits I fit into my jeans again this weekend for the first time in months!
