Vyvanse and high blood pressure

Common Questions and Answers about Vyvanse and high blood pressure


Avatar m tn Vyvanse is not a good medicine for people with high blood pressure and you might talk with your doctor and see if there are alternatives. Beta blockers do antagonize the effects of vyvanse. Maybe a calcium channel blocker or an ACE inhibitor would be better--but first check and see if Vyvanse is a must for you.
Avatar m tn If the high blood pressure just started, it could be a side effect of the Vyvanse. Even if you had high blood pressure before starting on the Vyvanse, the Vyvanse can make it worse. Try taking your blood pressure a few times on the Vyvanse and off the Vyvanse, at similar times of day and under similar circumstances. Depending on the results, you may need to talk to the doctor that is prescribing the Vyvanse to see if there is something else that can help your ADHD.
Avatar m tn I got on Vyvanse last year and I had high blood pressure again. I stopped taking it for a while, but I was still having high blood pressure so my Dr. put me on Lisinopril 10 mg & HCTZ 25 mg. My BP has still been high on this, even off Vyvanse (I am taking it again now since I am back in school). I told my Dr. about my anxiety bc I get really stressed about little stuff and almost feel like I am going to have a breakdown. I used to be on Prozac, but didn't think it did anything.
1666464 tn?1303228958 I have nausea, anxiety, acid reflux, what feels like high-blood pressure and I can't really focus. I begin to taper my medication down and notice that even the smallest amount of my medication has a big effect on me. For example, when I start taking Adderall I'll begin with let's say "for example" that I begin taking 10mg 2xDay. Week one is great. Week 2 the medication doesn't seem to be as affective but I stay on the same dose.
Avatar f tn I would venture to guess that the weed/Vyvanse combo set something off. I've smoked my fair share in the past and absolutely cannot on Vyvanse or similar drugs. My brother in-law had a similar experience when he was about 16/17. He mixed many drugs and his brain sort of snapped. He has a family history of bi-polar. Some people have a genetic disposition for disorders and they lay dormant until something activates it, like a weed/meth combo. I know you are scared.
Avatar n tn high blood pressure high cholestrol depression extreme pms....
Avatar n tn At this point I don't know what else to try. The high blood pressure, and high heart rate are making me leery of intense excercise. If anyone has any ideas, similar experiences, or suggestions please let me know. I can't figure out what else to try.
Avatar n tn i was originally diagnosed with a stim test by one doctor and then a second doctor did an improper stim test and a non-fasting blood draw---and pulled me off hydrocortisone and thyroid.
Avatar n tn My 17 year old daughter began taking vyvance last school year. She started with 30 mg (to little) and then tried 50mg (to much). They now have a 40mg which she started the beginning of this school year. About 2 weeks into the school year she was feeling sick to her stomach, headaches, etc, nothing new, BUT then she started feeling light headed and very weak. A trip to the pediatrician showed very high blood pressure and protein & blood in her urine.
Avatar f tn Tremors, restlessness, skin rashes (purple discoloration), palpitations, high and low blood pressure etc can be due to vyvanse. However, smoking too can also cause deep vein thrombosis and similar symptoms. You can talk to your doctor and get this investigated. If the symptoms are due to vyvanse, changing medication or adjusting the dose will help. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
Avatar n tn 96. I went and had more blood work done monday and still have not received a call from my doctor. I am just nervous and feel bad. I was just talking with guys at work and they never heard of men having thyroid problems, and then I check on line and it is rare. I was just wondering if anyone here knows of any men who have thyroid problems? And if my 16.96 TSH is something to be concerned about. THANKS!
702513 tn?1228516297 The machine will raise and lower its pressure to treat the apnea and will determine the 90% effective pressure. This will happen for two weeks. At the end, the machine will give you a new pressure setting based on 90% effectiveness. Sometimes, doctors hate to do this stuff. They think the overnight sleep study is the gold standard. My CPAP was originally set at 11cm pressure. Now, with my Auto-BiPAP, the average pressure every night is around 19cm. This is a huge difference.
Avatar n tn But, I am seriously contemplating asking my MD to prescribe Topamax for me for weight loss. I think maybe my blood pressure will also decrease, and I am sure my feet and joints won't hurt anymore if I can get this extra 60 lbs off me. As I said, I am 66 years young, and am interested if any other young seniors are in my shoes. Any comments for the older group will be greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn Things seemed okay for the first three days and then I started to have attacks of high blood pressure (166/90), tachychardia (140 bpm at rest) and severe chest pain. Yesterday I had to call an ambulance when one of these "episodes" hit me and after that I said "I've had it!" and threw it all away. Four or five times I thought I was going to die on this regimen.
Avatar f tn I will say my blood pressure was very high in the office. I had forgotten my sheet (after a hectic morning) that gave bp readings for the last month. My pb had been good when taken at home which I shared. I also share that I take Vyvanse prescribed by my family dr. Well, the cardiologist actually exhibited anger towards me. My pb spikes in a doctor's office. He angrily snapped at me and said will check with my family dr about the Vyvanse - insinuating it was prescribed maybe?
Avatar n tn First, stimulants, such as Vyvanse and Focalin, have side effects of increasing heart rate and blood pressure. I am not aware of increased risk of heart attack, per se, although if you have risk factors, such as hypertension, cigarette use, diabetes, high cholesterol, etc., stimulant medications may cause an extra stressor on the heart that could lead to a heart attack. Without evaluating you specifically, I cannot say for sure exactly what happened with you.

253566 tn?1219683299 I developed joint and muscle pain, periods of extreme fatigue, skin reactions, sun sensitivity, my blood pressure became above normal for the first time in my life, I have developed metabolic syndrome, high blood sugar (as in pre-diabetes), erectile dysfunction, recurring welt-like mouth and cheek sores, lots of gum loss, and bone thinning! I struggle with energy and motivation issues, and I often feel like my lungs burn when I workout or do aerobic exercise.
Avatar f tn I am 65, diabetic, on antidepressants, and high blood pressure medicaiton. The stress that this constant conflict is creating is not healthing for me or for my grandson, but I don't know what to do at this point. I know that the way I am reacting isn't helping the situation but I don't know how to stop as he becomes more demanding and disrespectful. He is in counseling but I don't see how it is helping.
Avatar f tn Of course, we discussed this with the pediatrician, and he did some x-rays and blood work. Everything seemed fine, and he chalked it up to 'growing pains'. He did not sleep through the night until he was 5 years old. Even now, at 10 years old, he wakes up many nights scared and in pain. We noticed he had some developmental delays. This was not uncommon in children adopted from an orphanage, so we weren't too concerned. He just needed some extra help.
Avatar f tn My TSH, Free T3, and Free T4 are all in-range. The TSH went slightly high, out-of-range; retested in-range. Some family history of thyroid cond. and my symptoms. As for my adrenals, I've had the serum cortisol, ACTH, sodium, and potassium tests. My symptoms seem hypoadrenal and possibly hypothyroid. Mainly: 1) mental fatigue (with poor attention, memory, concentration, retention, etc.) with ADHD and other learning disabilities.
Avatar f tn dont forget to be sure you dont have ANEMIA, HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, or THYROID hormones problems..
Avatar m tn In your case, heart conditions and high blood pressure can be responsible for erectile dysfunction. You may need to consult your doctor to see which amongst these causes are responsible for your problem. The commonly prescribed drug by the doctors is sildenafil, which causes erections to be stronger and long lasting. It is not safe to take this drug without doctor’s advise.
Avatar n tn In time, you will notice a sensitivity to cold temp.. Adderall can cause high blood pressure and high heart rates. Ask your doctor or a nurse to check your heart rate/bp on your next visit. Actually, by law prescribing dr.'s are required to take bp and heart rate of patients taking adderall although few adhere to it. I know that it helps you with classes. It really did help me tremendously although I would highly suggest taking something else.
Avatar n tn This list will come in one more than one post! For your information it was compiled in March of 2008 but hopefully it is more updated than your current list. Hope it helps.

Avatar f tn I have high cholesterol and high triglycerides also. I take wellbutrin XL 150 mg, vyvanse 50 mg and and strattera 80 mg. I developed swelling in my fingers in both hands this winter. It is perfectly symmetrical and located in the fatty tissue before my knuckle where my finger meets my hand. They are reddish plaque looking areas. The doctor referred to them as red, erythematous swelling (I included a picture for you to see).
Avatar m tn I'm on as high of a dose as I can do without my heart blowing out a valve. I take high blood pressure medication to counteract the dose I'm on now (60mg sa tabs generic). I'm still not able to hold a job because of my symptoms but I'm very thankful for the help my medication does give me. Dexidrine used to work much better but they took that off the market or something. I tried provigil, stratera, wellbutrin, lexapro, celexa, Prozac, paxil adderal, and concerta.
Avatar n tn She is 120 pounds, 16 years old and is about 5'4''. She couldnt eat and was having panic attacks, and puked, but refused to get help. She wouldnt let me help her and i was afraid of her. She crashed later about 24 hours after her last pill and slept for 13 hours. Then when she woke up on Thursday she went to school without taking her 25 mg cause her heart was still pumping.
