May need to stop: It sounds like your elevated blood pressure is related to your medication use and may need to be further evaluated. That higher number is not an acceptable long term side effect. If vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is the only medication you have tried you may want to consider alternates. However, you may find the same problem with all the stimulants. Speak with your provider.
