the normal resting blood pressure for any healthy individual is 120/80. you're blood pressure of 112/75 at 18 years is healthy. However, your pulse is high, but you said that it is due to the Adderall your taking. If you need more info. visit www.medicalillnesses.blogspot.com (don't worry it's not only about illnesses)

My chest has been hurting for about a week very mildly but i descided to check my blood pressure, and got a machine to do it with from my mom. It is a arm cuff digital machine, and i have tajen it since yesterday frequently in the same position and everything. It is all over the place. this morning it was normal at 115/80 but a pulse of 111 upon waking. then it has been as high as 168 as a top number and as high as 101 as the bottom. There was a few times it was normal. When I felt the worst however (really tired) it was 95/64. My pulse has only been under 100 once and then it was 98.

I am 33, 5 7 around 130 lbs. I have developed severe headaches after started ADHD treatment with Stimulants. My pulse and blood pressure are elevated yet normal. I have had EEG, MRI, CT Scan, everything is normal. The pain radiates from the bridge of left side of my nose and is everyday. The pain persists even after stopping the Stimulants. However my pulse rate and blood pressure are still elevated. Could the cause be related to BP or pulse rate? Triptans did not stop the headaches. On preventative Elavil, Mobic, and recently added low dose of Blood Pressure med. My normal heart rate is around 55, currently running 75-95 beats/min. This has lasted over 6 months.

I am 52 years old and have been on Zoloft 50 mill for 3 months and then my psychiatrist added 20 mill of generic adderall. My hair has become dry and I have been losing about 50 or so strands of hair a day. I can tell my hair is thinning and not as soft as it used to be. It tangles a lot and is frizzy?

I am a recovering alcoholic with 7 years sobriety. I started taking through my doctor vyvanse for adult ADHD. He put me on 50 mg but it wasn't helping much so I upped my dose by .25 mg for two weeks. I asked to increase my dose to 70 which is working great. My question is did I relapse since I took more than what my doctor initially prescribed?
Thank you for your response.

Hi. I took a 15 mg adderall (not prescribed) to study at around 10 am. At around 7-8pm, I smoked cannibas (also not prescribed). A few moments later I began to feel very dizzy, and my heart beat was extremely fast. I then felt pressure and dizziness, but not an excruciating pain to my chest. After that my body was becoming cold, starting with my hands and eventually shivering. I took a hot shower and tried to keep warm and just went to sleep after it calmed down a bit. Today my heartbeat seems "normal" but i still feel lightheaded somewhat and I'm concerned. Did I have a heart attack?
