Should I Take Adderall With High Blood Pressure
Can Ritalin/Adderall induce permanent hypertension? No pre-existing cardio conditions. Will I still have high blood pressure after I come off of it?
Over doing ADHD: Zoloft (Sertraline) is risky - seriously - w/ amphetamines. It's not likely to continue causing hypertension after you stop, but it's very threatening until you do. Consider CBT therapy to avoid the risk and learn skills to manage your symptoms. Withdrawal from these drugs takes time - plan ahead and protect yourself while you're still young.

Worrisome: Adderall can cause severe high blood pressure in susceptible people. If your vision is blurry due to high blood pressure from Adderall, it's not safe for you to continue it.

My grandma has to take her pill for her high blood pressure. But when she sees that her pressure is good she does not take her pill. Is that dangerous?
That depends: It depends on many factors. For example in diabetics it is a standard of care that they be on certain types of blood pressure medication even if their BP is normal.

I have high blood pressure.. i take meds.. it's about 135 over 85. will this vitapak elevate my BP even more?
Unlikely/uncertain: The vitamins in "vitapak" shouldn't affect your blood pressure. Fenugreek extract appears to be harmless but ineffective in building muscle. Some studies suggest tribulus terrestris has anablic steroid effect which could indirectly raise your blood pressure.
