High Biliruben Counts And Having Reactions To Adderral

My brother had his gallbladder removed in 2003. In April of this year his spleen was enlarged and it was removed. He went back to his doctor a few months because his head felt 'full of cotton' still and a bloodtest showed he just over safe ranges of both biliruben types in his blood, but the doctor didn't think it important to check out.
Last month he was prescribed Vyvanse to help him focus and about thirty minutes after taking the first dose his forearms, hands, calves and feet turned bright red and swelled up and he started have cold chills. He thought it was just temporary, but after taking a few more doses the next week he went back to his doctor. The doctor prescribed him Adderral which did the same thing so then the doctor prescribed him Focaline, but those didn't do anything.
After much researching about biliruben is there the possibly that his liver isn't able to process the Adderral and that is why he is having this reaction it?
He is 32, smokes lightly and doesn't work out as much as he should. He is only allergic to albumin and he sits at a desk most of the day.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

If medications are metabolised in the liver, then raised liver enzymes can cause inadequate elimination of the drug. But Adderall (adderrall) is excreted by the kidney. And what he developed could have been hives. Hives develop in response to an allergic reaction, by the release of histamine. The allergen can be medications, food, extremes of temperature, exercise and viral infections to name a few. Since he developed the outbreak after he started the medication, it could be an allergic reaction.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
