What ADHD medication would work for someone that has an arrhythmia (bradycardia w/ PVC)? On its own the arrhythmia might be a perfectly fine thing but I"m worried about the use of a stimulant med with it.

Anti-depressants are not a good option (have used many different onesĀ  in past with no relief). Also I and am very sensitive to the sleepiness side effect of meds.

I know nothing about that particular arrythmia, but I take heart meds to prevent atrial fibrillation. My cardiologist was of the opinion that stimulants were worth the risk if they significantly increased my quality of life, which they do. So far, I seem to be considerably more reliable about taking my heart meds now that Adderall helps me a bit with memory, so there may not actually be additional risk. Your mileage may vary.

Strattera isn't supposed to be a stimulant, but you might want to go back to crazymeds and do your homework on that one. Doesn't agree with everyone either.
