How can I bring my bp down from taking Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine)? Will exercise help? I haven't exercised in over 10 years... or lowering my dosage from 15mg to 10mg?

How can I bring my bp down from taking Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine)? Will exercise help? I haven't exercised in over 10 years... or lowering my dosage from 15mg to 10mg?

Bp on adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine): Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) stimulates adrenalin which can raise your pulse and BP. You can take a beta blocker like atenolol which blocks adrenalin but doesn't get into the brain so it would reduce the BP effect without reducing the cognitive benefits. Exercise is the best thing you can do for your general health both mental and physical and can reduce your need for meds but will probably raise your BP and pulse. ...Read more
