Could raised heartrate be due to intake of decongestant for vertigo while being on Lexapro, risperdal and vyvanse?

My resting heart rate is 102 BPM. I take Lexapro, risperdal, and vyvanse. I just added a decongestant to alleviate pressure on my ear canals causing vertigo. I realize the raised heart rate is most likely a result of these medications. Is this cause for concern? Lexapro 10mg per day Risperdal .25mg per day Vyvanse 70mg per day

Hello,

Decongestants can increase a person's heart rate.

This can lead to further complications if the user has pre-existing conditions.

So, I suggest to avoid using decongestants.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
