Vyvanse and Puberty in male teens

Patient : Hi, I'm a boy and Im 15 years old. About 3 months ago, I was perscribed 70mgs of Vyvanse for ADD and BED. Vyvanse has been perfect curbing my appetite and helping me focus in high school but with one huge problem; Vyvanse has made it extremely hard to achieve a normal erection. I have also had concerns of Vyvanse stunting my growth. I have an extremely low growth hormone level (most people produce a 10, I produce a 2)and have been taking injections nightly for years. I am going to address my issues to my doctor, but in the meantime, should I stop taking my Vyvanse until them, or continue.
Symptoms:  Erectile dysfunction
