Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Tenex
Answer: Tenex is usually used as an anti-hypertensive. It however, is a central alpha blocker(central referring to the brain and alpha the type of neuro receptor). It will cause a lower blood pressure, constipation, sedation as side effects. I have no experience using it in ADHD, but I suspect he/she is looking for the sedative effect. I'd judge by results as is the norm in ADHD. See if he is better on the medication or not. This medication should not be abruptly stopped. It should have no effect on his heart, but may lower his blood pressure. There will be no problem with other over the counter medications-unless he has abruptly stopped the medication.
