I have been taking Ritalin for my ADD for the

Patient : I have been taking Ritalin for my ADD for the last couple weeks, tonight I took it without food before a workout. About 30 minutes after I took Ritalin and 2 advil (had a bit of a headache) I drank my pre-workout and proceeded to work out. NO dizziness. Post workout I drank my protein shake with 5g of creatine (usual). After about 30 min to an hour I started to feel dizziness, I took tylenol for my head and its starting to feel better. I feel like its just because I didn't take ritalin with food and mixed it with advil. Maybe the pre workout had something to do with it. Should I be worried?
Symptoms:  Dizziness, mild headache
