I've been prescribed Adderall for some time now and have recently noticed much higher blood pressure readings. I'm seeing my doctor soon for this, but I wanted to see if in the mean time if it is common and safe to take Adderall along with high blood pressure medicine (If I have to go that route). I've heard some say they had to stop taking Adderall upon taking high blood pressure medicine, and others say they didn't - Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
Morning color; There is not just one answer for this. The best way to handle this is when you see your doctor about the blood pressure tell the doctor to remember I take Adderall so I need a blood pressure pill that is okay to work while I am on both. Many people do take both but try and keep a few hours away from each other the doctor should know all of this and which medications you can take to lower your blood pressure. But if you keep worrying about it when you go in to have your blood pressure checked it is going to be even higher .lol, The can figure something out for you.
Chuck gave you good advise.
See your doctor.
I have high blood pressure and take Ritalin. It's ok to take these together if your BP is controlled.
Have you gained weight?
Do you exercise?
Have you increased you sodium intake through junk food, processed foods, a salt shaker ?
If so, the Adderal may not be the culprit.
