Adderall

I've been on Adderall (adderrall) and Adderall (adderrall) XR for about 2 months now. I'm currently on 10mg XR once a day, pondering whether to increase it to 2 times a day. The dosages have varied in the past. About a month into take the medication I decided to just randomly have my blood pressure checked. I was surprised and worried when the reading came out to 13X over 81. I've never had high blood pressure in the past and I believe it was about 10X over ? before beginning the meds. I read on the net that it may take about 3 to 4 months for the body to react and the pressure to return to normal. I've been monitoring my blood pressure many times a day since then. It's been as high as 150/9X and as low as 106/74. It appears to be bouncing around a lot. I can take a measurement, have it come out as 125/83, then take it again a few moments later and have it 118/77. Any comments on this situation??
