Yes but: You have to be exercising moderately and gradually. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is a stimulant affecting the cardiovascular system with a significant risk of increasing both heart rate and blood pressure. Exercising also increases the heart rate and blood pressure during the effort. The best is to have your blood pressure regularly monitored by your prescribing doctor. Congrats for exercising and b safe!

Exercise and Adderal: There is no difficulty taking Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and exercising with simple precautions - stay hydrated and check pulse and blood pressure occasionally. I see an nfl player who takes Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and does fine. So not to worry.
