Re: Amphetamines and high blood pressure
Personally, I would stay away from the Adderall. It's a fairly potent stimulant. I would imagine that, yes, it would elevate heartrate and BP. Also, it can be fairly addictive (that and ritalin were abused quite a lot around my college campus).
I also wouldn't trust my doctor if my gut says otherwise. My wife, who is pregnant, was prescribed an asthma medication by her doctor that could have been dangerous to our baby. Thank god for Google. A few angry phone calls later, and we got the proper prescription to safely manage her asthma during her pregnancy. I was irate at the doctor, but they just brushed it off.
