Will vyvanse cause blood in stools?

Hi I am a 24 year old male medical school student. I have been taking vyvanse for the past 6-8months or so. Correlating with taking the vyvanse i have been experiencing blood in my stool frequently. I assume the cause is hemroids probably due to the increased heartrate and cardiac output i display. Is this correct? Why would this be happening, and why if at all would vyvanse cause these symptoms? How conscerned should i be about it?

Hello dear

Warm welcome to
I have evaluated your query thoroughly .

* Usual side effect profile is diarrhea and stomach upset from the vyvanse
but still individual body can respond to varying degree so far as the
side effects are concerned .

* Have to ask your doctor for the alternative molecule for that , along with
that keep dietary precautions and avoid hard stools .

Hope this clears your doubt .
Wishing you fine recovery .

Welcome for any further assistance .
Regards dear take care .
