Question Adderall XR and blurred vision?

I have been on Adderall XR 5mg and 20mg Celexa for about two weeks now and it seems that I feel worse! I am taking Meletonin 1.5MCG to sleep which works ok. I get up in the AM with no issues which is good but I have anxiety on top of my ADHD so the Adderall helps with that but not my Anxiety... That is one issue. Next, since I have been on the Adderall XR my vision is all jacked up. I can't see very well... Anyone have this problem???

Re: Adderall XR and blurred vision?

I take IR adderall but sometimes I do have problems with blurred vision. I think its because of high blood pressure. Blurred vision is a symptom of high blood pressure and sometimes adderall causes high blood pressure. If you're stressed or have anxiety issues and your on adderall you'll probably have issues with high blood pressure.. and might want to look into taking add medication that isn't a stimulant. I just know that during finals week I might take a little more than my daily dosage, and I'll have issues with my vision.

talk to your dr obviously, but if your doctor is anything like mine, they really don't know much about the drug. Once I realized my dr would raise my dosage anytime I asked I realized she had never taken the drug and only knew the text book information about it and I stopped asking her any questions.

Maybe go get a blood pressure reading at a pharmacy.
