    Recently went to emergency due to heart palpitations. Thought I was having a heart attack. Dr gave me the all clear after I had chest X-ray, ecg analysis, and blood tests done. Only thing they could tell me was my k+ (Potassium) levels were low and I had a increased PR interval of 216. I had been taking creatine monohydrate as I like to gym. As it is a diuretic, staying hydrated is a must. Lower k+ levels (which have been known to cause palpitations) could have occurred through increased urinary secretion. I was only recently diagnosed with ADHD a few years back and have been taking Ritalin since then. Generally only 10mg 2/3 x pday (pretty low dosage). I understand it is a stimulant & I know there are dangers involving stimulants and the heart. Seriously contemplating getting off it (but it has helped my life so dramatically that I am torn).
    After reading a bit about the prolonged PR interval, I am a bit worried as it seems like a good portion of individuals eventually decline or die.

    Male, mid-fifties with major long-term (and refractory) depression since early teens. Re-entered therapy in late 30s and able to manage depression effectively with medications.

    Dr is trying to augment Effexor with stimulant meds to see if there is a positive response and possibly to reduce Effexor dose (currently 425 mg daily).

    Hello!

    My 21-year-old son has gynecomastia. He took Ritalin at around 9 years old until recently we switched to Vyvanse. One breast is 3 inches and the other smaller but has grown in the last 3 years.

    Any lawsuits out there? I feel so bad for him. He was always embarrassed about his open heart surgery scar but now this..
