There has been links to adderall and blood clots.  Because it is a form of speed you want to be VERY careful.  People with any sort of heart problems should not be taking this drug.  Maybe talk to your doctor about Strattera as it is a non-stimulant.

Can taking 20mg of Adderall and having Factor V Leiden, put me at a higher risk for a blood clot?  Also, I had a very strage week of being extremely confused (4-6) days with a BP of 157/118.  Is it the Adderall, or the combination of taking it and having Factor V Leiden the reason for this.  Had an MRI, there were no clots.
