What causes high BP and heart beat having swelling in parotid glands?

My parotid glands are swollen. BP 170/90 and bpm 150. I insufflated around 4, 10mg dexedrine ir and swallowed 2 in the last 12 hours. I know thats a rather small ammount for overdose but i can't get anything other than very general information off the internet about it.

Welcome and thank you for asking on HCM!

Your high blood pressure and heart rate could be explained by exedrine effects.

The swollen parotid glands could be related to inflammation or infection (parotitis).

For this reason, I recommend consulting with your attending physician for a careful physical exam and some blood lab tests (complete blood count, PCR, ESR for inflammation).

Taking plenty of water would help remove exedrine from your body and relieve its effects on your blood pressure and heart rate.

Hope you will find this answer helpful!

Kind regards,

Dr. Iliri
