Vyvanse side effects after stopping drug

To make a long story short.  I haven't taken vyvanse for 3 months but have consistent chest pain which started when taking the drug.  my blood pressure did go up when taking the drug so i was put on atenolol.  I had since discontinued the drug (about 3 months ago) but the side effects continue .  I have 24/7 tight chest.

Anyone with similar experience, recommendations, etc?

   Ummm, any stim med can certainly cause the heart to beat faster and thus raise blood pressure.  However, all of these meds are fairly quickly out of the system.   Thus I am thinking that the tight chest is due to other factors?
   Are you still on atenolol?   If not has your blood pressure returned to normal?
   Do you have anxiety problems?
    Are you on any other meds?

I am not still on atenolol.  This issue only started once i started vyvanse.

   Glad to hear the atenolol was stopped.  Figured it had but wanted to make sure.  
   As I said, there could be other things at play here (like anxiety).  But it is definitely something to discuss with your doctor.  If you never had that problem before, there is no reason that you should have to be putting up with it now.

Those who take this drug are usually warned the can suffer withdrawal if they stop the drug. This is an addicting medication. Didn't your doctor explain this to you?
