Does anyone know about having trouble swallowing and difficulty breathing when on Adderall XR?

I was prescribed Adderall XR by my primary care doctor to treat my ADHDI. At first it helped a lot, although a couple weeks after I started taking it, I started noticing that I was having difficulty swallowing, it felt like my throat was somehow smaller than normal. At the same time I started to feel my breathing was different, at first it was just trouble catching my breath, but it snowballed into me feeling like my body just couldn't get enough air, tightness of the chest, tingling of fingers/toes. If anyone has any information please let me know.

I have already been to the doctor who prescribed it multiple times, she told me to just relax and keep taking it, but I am afraid that something more extreme will come next. please let me know if anybody has suggestions. thanx

These could be the side effects of taking Adderall XR, tightness in the chest, shortness of breadth, tingling of fingers/toes, you must seek medical advice form the doc who prescribed the med. He/she may change or alter dose.
Please take care & be well!
