Mine (Provigil) isn't listed, but then it's not really a stimulant

But Adderall used to make my heart race. It's good to see the FDA and the drug companies coming together over this. And as someone who already has psychiatric issues in addition to ADHD (and I'm certainly not alone), I think it's good to know both the cardiovascular and psychiatric risks to these medications. Hopefully it doesn't keep anyone from getting the help they need--you have to weigh the risks and the benefits, with the help of doctor of course. But it's still good information to have.
