Vyvanse or Adderall, which has less effect on blood pressure?

I posted this same message on the Adderall Board. I switched several months ago from Vyvanse to Adderall IR due to the fact I seemed to build a tolerance to the Vyvanse and it wasn't effective anymore even when we raised the dose. I have seen a considerable increase in my blood pressure since switching. I have always had low BP, off meds around 116/68. On Vyvanse it increased but stayed within the normal range. Now its averaging 140/84. I'm 44 and don't want to see those numbers go any higher, if you know what I mean?! I'm only on 40 mg or IR daily and very rarely ever use over 30 mg. Most days I only need 25mg, so it's not like I'm taking to high of a dosage. I like the advantage of being able to take it as needed with the Adderall IR, but I'll gladly switch back if high blood pressure is more of a side effect with Adderall.
Any imput will be greatly appreciated!

It cannot be guessed: it's a case of suck-it and see.

On Adderall XR for two years, my blood pressure did not change. When I began taking Dexamphetamine (the medication in Vyvanse), my blood pressure began to rise. Over time, it is now where I am not comfortable with it. I am discontinuing all Dex like meds.
