In brief: Your heart rate &

blood pressure are elevated by amphetamines.
Monitor them closely. . Take some readings before & after exercise. If you have any concerns about exercising safely, see your primary physician for evaluation. Since you're 42, you'll probably be referred to a cardiologist for clinical evaluation, an EKG, an exercise tolerance test & other studies depending on findings.
