Anyone on here taking Stratera, Adderal, Vyvanse or any Attention Deficit Disorder meeds?  I have a friend whose heart rate races when he is sparring and he is a little nervous that it can affect him in his upcoming pro fight.  Anyone have any advice or can anyone relate?  Please share what you can, thank you.

PS-He is prescribed Adderal and has been on it for 3 months.

Adderal is an amphetamine, of course his heart races when he works out.

 yes it does have a distinct effect. I have a fighter who is on Adderal and he has an elevated resting heart rate, which essentially drives all of his other thresholds up 10-15+ bpm.

We work very hard to keep him in excellent aerobic conditioning so that his rhr is as low as possible so that he can stay aerobic while sparring as much as possible to prevent going lactic too long per round.
