Is my Adderrall causing serious health problems?

Patient : I have been taking 60 mg of Adderrall XR a day for 10 months and have been very happy with the drug. Over the past four days or so I have been havingdizzy spells and light headedness. Could this be from the drug and do you think it's anything I should be concerned about? I've also been noticing slight anxiety type symptoms where I'm having to frequently take deep breaths and have brief rapid heart beat. I've been under a tremendous amount of stress lately and suspect that could also be the cause. any insight you can give is appreciated.
