Does anyone take any prescription stimulants? Any effects as far as maintaining your cycling at a high level?

There are some widely prescribed stimulants like Ritalin and even decongestants like Claritin-D are supposed to increase the heart rate. Anyone have any experience with these drugs? Since they can elevate the heart rate, should you just make sure you are monitoring your heart rate with a HRM to ensure you don't go overboard?

I do have a doctor apptmt coming soon, but I was wondering what others may experience.
this would be a question to ask your dr. (nm)ColnagoFE
