HTN and kidney mass: 60F from CA had BP 240/110 and mass in R kidney. Was told to watch and wait. Wants second opinion.

Is it safe for me to be taking Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine), (lisdexamfetamine)Xanax, And Blood Pressure meds all at once? I only have anxiety and HBP when taking the Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine). 2nd opinion?

It depends: Since I don't know your history, it's difficult to say if your medication regimen is appropriate. This shouldn't be considered a second opinion. Personally, I don't prescribe Xanax (alprazolam) because I am able to lower patient's anxiety with alternative treatments. At a minimum, I hope you're discussing your concetns with your physician. Since Vyvanse causes high blood pressure, I have concerns. Good luck.. ...Read more
