Can you overdose (OD) on Adderall?

Yes. You can overdose on Adderall, a combination brand drug made of dextroamphetamine and amphetamine.

When you OD on Adderall you can experience a heart attack, stroke, or case of sudden death. But how much Adderall does it take to overdose?  Here, we reveal how much Adderall is too much and explore what you can do to avoid an accidental Adderall overdose. We welcome your questions about Adderall and overdose at the end.

Can you overdose on Adderall?

Yes, you can overdose on Adderall. Even if you don’t take enough to OD, Adderall can be dangerous because of its cardiac effects. One special danger with Adderall is the fact that it’s often prescribed to children suffering from ADHD, and it’s easier for children to accidentally take too much Adderall than for adults.

Secondly, taking Adderall for non-medical reasons increases your risk of death and overdose, so Adderall should only be taken swallowed as a whole pill, and only in the doses recommended by your doctor. You’re much more likely to overdose when you chew, crush, snort or inject Adderall pills. Plus, Adderall addictive.  The quick delivery of dextroamphetamine and amphetamine to the brain that comes from chewing, crushing or snorting Adderall effects increase your risk of cardiovascular events.

What happens when you overdose on Adderall?

Cardiovascular problems are the biggest risk of overdosing on Adderall. Adderall overdose can cause heart attacks, stroke, or even sudden death. Furthermore, Adderall can cause heart and lung problems even at doses lower than necessary to overdose.

How many Adderall is too much?

In children, the typical dose of Adderall is only 2.5-5mg per day. Adderall should never be given in doses larger than 40/mg per day. A child can overdose more easily on Adderall than an adult because of their small body mass.

Adults may be prescribed anything from 5-60 mg of Adderall per day, depending on their situation. As little as 30mg of Adderall can be dangerous to some people, while a dose as high as 500 mg has been reported as safe in an individual who habitually abused Adderall. 70 mg of Adderall in one day is considered the maximum safe daily dose by the FDA.

The fatal amount of Adderall varies from person to person. Doses as high as 15,000 mg have been reported without killing the person who took the medication – although in most cases this would be more than enough to overdose. In general, 20-25 mg/kg of a person’s body weight is considered a fatal dose. In an adult weighing 150 lbs, the fatal dose would most likely be about 1360 mg.

Adderall overdose help

If you’ve taken a high dose of Adderall and experience adverse side effects, you should seek medical attention immediately. The prognosis will depend on a number of different factors, including your own size and body chemistry. Because the results of Adderall overdose can be so unpredictable, it’s best to see a doctor as soon as possible.

I had two exams today. I went to the exam center at 12, I had crushed 20 mg, 20mg and 5mg, and put it in water and drank that. I also had at 1 pm 5 mg and stupidly with coffee. My regular does is suppose to be 20 mg, 20 mg and a half. I have been on Adderall for almost two years.
I got out of my first exam at 2:15, I took a break and ate a buritto and some of a Special K bar. But I still feel dizzy and a little shaky, and now at 4:17 I feel tired. What should I do? Did I overdose? Yes, I know it wasn’t smart, and I do not plan on doing it again EVER.

9:10 am December 15th, 2012

Hello B. Hyperawareness, hypersexuality, hypervigialance, and
psychomotor agitation are signs of an Adderall overdose. You may feel manic. If you still feel this way 24 hours later, mania may be present, and treatment for manic discorder may be required. But usually, the intoxicated feel of high doses of Adderall wear off on their own. Nonetheless, if you feel out of control, contact a detox clinic or your prescribing doctor to seek medical help.

Good morning,

I’m experiencing unusual side-effects. I wasn’t sure if it was just nerves at first, but now I think I may have taken two of my pills this morning. I have to take a different pill one hour before eating, which I did, but I woke up off my schedule this morning at 5am instead of 6am. I don’t remember if I took my Adderall at this time or not. I definitely took it at 8am. I’m just so busy with school and getting a paper done today that I don’t remember. What should I watch for? When should I worry? What should I do? My pill is a 15 mg capsule. I weigh between 120-124 lbs. I hope you can get back to me soon. Thank you.

12:02 pm February 15th, 2013

Hi Ashley. If you’re feeling jittery and nervous, these symptoms should begin to wear off after Adderall effects peak, which depends on the type of Adderall you take. While you should have nothing to worry about, you might want to call a Poison Control Center (national hotline 1-800-222-1222) to be sure. If you feel off a few hours later, maybe check with the school medical center just to get another point of view.

Hello Wyatt. Call 1-800-222-1222 for the Poison Control Center and an expert opinion on what you should do. In general, acute effects of an overdose wear off in time…but you don’t want to risk cardiac problems, either.

I have a friend who took, in the last 24 hours, 90 mg of adderall and 30 mg of celexa, which is three times his normal prescribed dose. He weighs roughly 140 lbs and is 18 years old. Is this combination enough to cause an overdose?

11:23 am April 8th, 2013

Hello Shannon. I’d suggest that you call the Poison Control Center at 1-800-222-1222 for more information.

My adult daughter takes Adderall, not sure of dose, she did not have problems as a child graduated 5th in her class of 600. She is now a single mother of 2 and a teacher. Her life is chaos to say the least. She is so unorganized always running late, getting speeding tickets and this all seems worse since being on Adderall. I am just worried that she does not really need the meds and they are making her worse. Wondering what you think? She also has this little tapping her teeth with her tongue that she has never done prior to meds.

4:23 am May 20th, 2013

Hello Dorothy. Adderall used therapeutically CALMS people. It does sound like Adderall may be a “life enhancement” tool for your daughter. I’d suggest that you make a list of all the things that concern you and approach her in a loving way. It may be difficult for her to hear, but when you become psychologically dependent on Adderall, you are ignoring what is beneath the surface.

Hi. This is only kind of relevant so don’t feel obligated to respond. Also because it’s crazy.

I have been diagnosed with an eating disorder and my symptoms have been pretty bad lately because I’m out of town and away from my treatment team. I have been eating very little and purging most of what i do eat for the last few weeks. I take 100mg of prozac daily (prescribed) and have lately also been taking 30mg of adderall xr every other day (not prescribed).

Today while playing soccer with my brother I started feeling sharp chest pains a little to the left of my breastbone, a dull pain in my left shoulder, and constricting in my throat. Afterwards, my chest felt heavy for at least an hour. It went away but then came back for a short time later in the day. Of course, I realize these could be symptoms of a heart attack or angina.

My question is whether this is likely to be related to my adderall use, or if it is more likely to be solely because of lack of oxygen from exercising since I’m not doing well with eating. Could that dose of adderall be that dangerous for me to take? I’m female, 20 years old, weigh 110lbs, and am 5’6”. I don’t even know that I’m in medical danger anyway, but I can’t stop wondering which is the primary cause of my symptoms.

10:11 am June 3rd, 2013

Hi Lauren. Do you have a contact number for your treatment team? I think that they symptoms require both a check-in and a diagnosis. Adderall has been associated with some (rare) cases of cardiac arrest in young people. But you’ll need some medical expertise to talk it out. Also, are you ready to stop taking Adderall???

Lauren
7:44 am June 8th, 2013

Thank you for your insight.
I do have emails and phone numbers of all the healthcare professionals on my treatment team, and I do trust them fully. I just don’t want to risk dramatizing anything while they can’t see me because they might tell me to go to the ER…simply BECAUSE they can’t see me. If I weren’t out of town, I would talk with them about it without hesitation, and probably will in a few weeks when I get back.

Lauren
7:45 am June 8th, 2013

Your question about being ready to stop taking Adderall has made me think, and kind of inspired a whole new ramble/question…
I don’t know that I’m ready to stop completely… I was only taking it regularly for about a week, and I realize I was starting to subconsciously cross some lines by abusing it for weight-loss; I cut back pretty fast after admitting that to myself.

Usually I take it only based off of my (self-perceived) ability to function… meaning when I’m having too much trouble concentrating or getting things done, which is partly because I do believe I have a degree of attention deficit, and partly because of depression/anxiety disorders that decrease motivation. When I take Adderall my mind calms down in a way that makes me be able to focus on what I need to get done, which in effect helps me feel more capable and in control of myself. That is what I expected and is the reason I started taking it, but the rest I never knew would happen: I feel considerably less depressed, almost all of my chronic suicidal ideation disappears (or is at least deferred), and it seems to improve my interpersonal interactions by boosting my self-esteem.

Would you say that I should stop anyway? That the costs and risks outweigh the benefits? I know it will never be prescribed to me (or at least any time soon) because of my ED, but I still feel like it’s beneficial. To be honest, I don’t know if I will stop anyway, but I’m interested to hear if/why you don’t think it’s a good idea. (Other than the illegality….I admittedly don’t care about committing victim-less crimes.) I would at the very least take what you have to say under serious consideration.

I hope I don’t sound too self-righteous… I probably have a skewed perception of my situation and likely know a lot less about this than I’m behaving like I do. I’ve seen how outrageously deluded people can be about drugs (especially if they’re addicted and ignorant of that fact) which is why I’m asking for objective advice.

Also, is there any way you can respond to me without posting this? I’m not worried about any of the information being too personal, but I don’t want anyone reading my arguments for taking unprescribed drugs and internalizing them. It’s up to you though if you don’t think it will negatively influence anyone. I guess it depends on the contents of your response.

5:22 am June 11th, 2013

Hi again. It’s my opinion that using Adderall for performance enhancement without a prescription is dancing with dependence. Physical and psychological. The mind is a tricky place. And we can rationalize many unhealthy behaviors. That you can be honest about the effect and how it works for you is refreshing. I put it to you that you can be healthy of mind and body without stimulants and that while the risks of serious adverse side effects are unpredictable, they are still present. Ultimately, you decide what you consume. Just be aware that hiding behaviors from your treatment team will not serve you in the long run.

I have a rlly good tolerance to adderal. I don’t have adhd or anything adderal is used for. but I like to mess with them. If u take two or three 10 mg tablets together every few hrs can you still od and if so how much would it take to od if I took em in that way. im 22 and 5,6 and 130 pounds. I have been exsposed to adderalls on and off for years. how much does it take to damage organs and to od so I know. ty.

1:17 pm August 21st, 2013

Hello Eddy. This is a question for your prescribing doctor or a pharmacist. Have you tried asking either of these medical professionals?

I have been prescribed Dexedrine for hyperactivity since I was 5 and I have some CYP enzyme issue that I had to get tested for because I take 10-30 mg of the immediate release up to 5 times a day but I rarely take the full dose because it makes me lazy, quiet and tired. According to the dude that did the liver enzyme test… my max dose can be 150 mg but I guess with how my body burns through it, it is only like taking 50 mg or something to the average person. I tried everything else… the long acting ones made me not eat all day and fly into a rage when they wore off and I needed 2 doses of that a day just to cover 8 hours…. the only way I can tell this wears off is that I start talking nonstop and raiding the refrigerator. I like being able to take lower doses for certain situations that being silent in (social situations) is not appropriate. However, I can argue that even as a hyper person who was brought up in the 1980’s Ritalin Zombie child era that not being taught any skills in sense caused a dependency because without them, at age 33, I act 14… and it is embarrassing.

Yes, you CAN overdose on Adderall—even when it’s your prescription medicine. Happened to me several years ago when I used to daily w/out skipping a beat take @ least 3-4 times my dose which at the time was 30mg 3 times a day. Alls I used to do was ingest the pill, no crushing, snorting or anything EVER. So one day, I simply blacked out, hit the floor & had a grand Mal seizure—-luckily I was @ work, a co-worked called 911 & the EMT’s came. When I woke up, I had peed my pants, was confused & lethargic. Never, ever had history of any types of seizures. It was definitely O/D from Adderall & apparently a lucky one @ that! :( Upon arriving at the E.R.–Dr’s like “You took too much of your Adderall, didn’t you?” Smart guy. So please don’t think IF you only take a lot more in pill form, that you’ll be much safer. Peace out.

I am a full time student and I do most of my work Thursday through Sunday, so my question is can I take 60mg throughout the coarse of my busiest days? I am normally prescribed 30mg, but that wears off by mid-afternoon and I work on my studies until about midnight. I am almost 38 and my weight is 160lbs. I thank you for your time to assist.

10:06 am February 25th, 2014

Hello boybot9000. Speak with your prescribing doctor about increasing doses on the weekends during study periods. S/He will have some considerations or dosing experience to guide you in your decision. And never increase Adderall doses without medical supervision!

8:50 am July 4th, 2014

Hi there! I’m thinking about speaking with my doctor about Adderall and possibly getting a prescription. Although I have never tried it before (and would never without my doctor’s approval and a prescription), I have heard from multiple people I previously took college courses with that it is extremely helpful for studies. I believe I’ve developed attention issues over the past few years, and with summer coming to a close soon and classes starting back up, I would like to give it a shot. Throughout high school I was a straight A student and never had problems when it came to listening to my instructors. I even held a part time job just fine! Now, I’m taking online classes full time and have a full time job to juggle as well. I do not have time to attend classes in person, so online classes are my only real option. The issue with that is I have such a hard time focusing and committing to my studies/assignments/homework. I was never the kind to wait until last minute to finish something, but now I find myself rushing and getting stressed to finish these the day they are due or the night prior. I suppose the question I have is whether or not I sound like a likely candidate for Adderall. Obviously I don’t expect professional medical advice on a forum, but I figured sharing my story here might help me to gauge whether or not I should bring this up during my next physical (in about 2 weeks if you could please get back to me before then)! Thank you for reading!

My daughter who thought shed experiment with it.. took 1 60 mg on day one got a load if energy.. day 2 took 1 during the day got nothing and so she took another. So a total of 180 mg in less than 48 hrs. She had a seizure turning blue and vomited. She probably wouldnt be here today if her father had not found her. IF YOU DO NOT NEED IT, DO NOT TOUCH IT! !!! it almost took her life at 15 yrs old. Just making one simple mistake THAT ALMOST COULD NOT BE UNDONE! I THANK GOD TODAY SHE IS WITH US EVERYDAY.

I accidentally took about 90-100mg when my normal dosage is 15-30 mg/day.
I feel really wired and my vision is blurred. My heart has calmed down, but I almost vomited a few times and I
Feel very out of it mentally and weak physically.
I wonder how long I will feel this way and should I try not to be very active for the day so as not to mess with my heart rate.
Please give me any information you have. I hate feeling this way and want to be as careful as possible to handle this the right way.
Thank you so much!

2:40 pm September 25th, 2014

Last weekend I was rushed to the ER, Friday I had crushed and snorted 4 20mgpills and felt great. Saturday I had bought 12 25mg pills and would crush and snort two at a time every couple hours. on Sunday I had consumed over 200mg. I went to work Monday and collapsed on the floor unable to breathe, heart slowly beating, and lungs in severe pain. the doctor says I am lucky to be alive. I now only do 4-5 25mg pills a day and I feel fine. I haven’t slept or ate in over 7 days. should I take a break before the weekend to collect myself or keep going? would the consequences be fatal if I continued my habits or am I gaining tolerance..?

9:37 am September 26th, 2014

Hi Jake. Your organism is reacting as it did because it doesn’t feel normal or good. You might not be aware of all the damage that you may cause yourself. It’s best to put an end to those habits and move on.

Krage
12:09 am October 24th, 2014

So I am prescribed 10 mg of adderall twice a day everyday. This dosage was fine for about 3 days, then on the 4th it felt barely noticeable, on the 5th no feeling at all. I consulted my doctor who checked my blood pleasure and preformed a EKG. He then gave me the go ahead to try 2 pills in the morning and 2 pills in the afternoon. Now arriving at my question, this dosage worked for 2 days then again nothing, not wanting to consult my doctor once again I took a 30mg dose and then another 40mg later in the day in two parts. It is 24 hours after the last dose and I still feel the effects of adderall. At no point did I get any adverse side effects except body tingles which was normal for me to feel once and a while on it, however I am still getting them and I can clearly tell it is still having an effect on my concentration. I am starting to get worried as the longest it’s ever lasted is 8 hours but don’t know if I should go to the doctor or if I do even what to say other than body tingles rarely and concentration after 24 hours.

FYI I did not take any today due to still feeling the effects clearly when I woke up.

2:56 pm October 27th, 2014

Hello Krage. It’s obvious your body is forming tolerance to the medicine quite fast. In order to feel the initial effects adderall gave you in the beginning, you’d have to continue upping doses. This is not a good thing to do. You might not be feeling the effects, but adderall will still be present in your body, making changes and influencing your organs and bodily functions.

4:24 am November 4th, 2014

i’ve been taking adderall the past 4,5 days and I’ve been adding 20mg every day. i started of with 40mg, and today i took 100mg. Im doing it because i get a lot of homework done for school and it helps me focus on my thoughts and i get shit done in my head, like everything falls in its place, it feels good when your on it and it makes me overconfident. it also makes me supper happy and i see and realize things that are mind blowing to me. When Im on it I see the world from a different perspective and i feel “LIMITLESS” to a certain extend. My question is, what should i do keep taking it because i don’t see any side effects or stop because i might be in great danger?!

Filip
4:51 am November 4th, 2014

By the way Im an athlete, i live a healthy life style, and eat about 4 or 5 meals a day even when Im on Adderall, current weight is 180lbs. I am 18years of age i workout every day i run for 2 miles before my workout and i sweat a lot, i hit the sauna once a week as well. I want to keep taking adderall even though its not proscribed to me and I’m not really sure what I’m doing or how this can affect my me later in life. So please get back to me as soon as possible! Im on it right now.

Hi Dalton. Have you talked about this with your doctor? You may need a dose adjustment or another therapy. I’d suggest making an appointment.

Hi,
I had a question about how much adderall is too much.?
Ive been taking the medication most of my life. Started at age 14. Im 28 now.
I started on one 30mg instant release a day. Than two. Now i take around 100mg a day.
My doctor seems to think its normal and im okay even though i tell him about numbness from time to time in my fingers. Can you tell me if 100mg is safe per day?

Thank you
Mike

3:03 pm December 16th, 2014

Hello Zachary. How are you? Tell your parents about what happened and have them drive you to the ER. Please remember to always take your medications exactly as prescribed.

2:34 pm December 29th, 2014

Hello Michael. In general, the dosage of Adderall should not be more than 40 mg per day total. You can talk to your doctor about tapering your doses down to a recommended daily dose.

I found all of this very helpful, few quick questions that would be nice to have cleared up. is the immediate release out of your system by the time it wears of? (take 3-20mg around noon, two more 20s around six p.m) Does the six hour break make that big of a difference on the IMMEDIATE RELEASE??

I started my adderall today 30 mg. I feel dizzy, I have a headache, and I feel tiered. Am I going to be okay? i’ve been drinking water and I ate a potato.. should I be fine?

You are completely wrong when you say an overdose is 20-25mg/kg. Anything over 100mg to a non habitual user is extremely dangerous. If one takes adderall every day, their tolerance will build, but for the occasional recreational user, and pretty much everyone other than hardcore amphetamine junkies, your “20-25mg/kg” advice is completely wrong and misleadingly lethal.

Don’t try that shit, I have experience. Anything more than 100mg will have most folks in a pretty scary place. I have a friend who has taken 180mg at once, but he takes two 30mg ir’s a day.

11:46 am January 16th, 2015

Hello Hannah. It’s a bodily reaction to something new, your organism will need a few days to adjust to the presence of the medication. However, if the symptoms persist, you should talk to your doctor and you may need dose adjustment.

Hi, so I was given a 70 mg aderal last night just randomly and I had a swim meet this morning and I wanted to start dropping more so I took it and did amazing. I am 5’10” 142 lbs and am an all year round athlete with vball and swimmig. I have never taken aderal so I don’t have a tolerance and I only plan to take it to help me in sports so I won’t be taking it very often. I want to take a 30-40 dosage but the person who gave it to me only has 70. Today at the swim meet I was jittery and happy which I expected the only thing was for like 2 seconds I had felt a little dizzy but that isn’t unusual because I get dizzy after sprinting in the pool very often anyways. I know 70 is very high but I want to know if I am at high risk to well die..

4:21 pm January 20th, 2015

Hi Claire. For adult patients 70 mg in one day is considered the maximum safe does, although this is generally not prescribed. But, even that is a daily dose, meaning it’s several pills taken throughout the day that make up to 70mg. You shouldn’t be taking a dose as high as that. If you are taking it for the first time even 30 mg is considered to be too much. I know you only want to take it occasionally, but please take it only in lower doses if you must.

Jon
9:32 am January 30th, 2015

Is there a particular scale to body weight and total dosage that a person should be taking when it comes to adderall? I’m a little concerned that a friend of mine might ask take too many of the 20mg dosage pills at once and was wondering what it takes to OD or cause permanent damage in some way as far as body weight and dosage size goes. Thanks for the help!

10:50 pm January 30th, 2015

Hello Jon. I’d suggest that you speak with a pharmacist for more details on typical prescription based doses as related to weight. Weight loss and loss of appetite is one expected side effect of amphetamines, but it can also be a signal of Adderall abuse. Does this help?

I have been on adderall for years and recently started a anti depressant. I’ve treid a few diffent anti deppressants, and if anything since starting them my suicaidal thoughts and tendancies have gotten worse, I actually looked this up to see if it was possable to kill myself with it. it’s 30 mg daily and im a big guy being foot 3 and 265 at the age of 16. I was wondering after reading aot of this if it’s possable the combonation of pills is cuasing my depression to worsen?

2:27 pm February 12th, 2015

Hello Kyle. Yes! Adderall withdrawal has been connected to suicidal ideation. Talk with your prescribing doctor or seek help with a psychiatrist ASAP! I wish you all the best.

I am 15 years old I weigh 125-130 pounds. I was prescribed adderall but for personal reasons took a 5 month break and didn’t take them at all. Last night I took 220mg and then aspirin and my melatonin meds. I’m starting to get stomach pains but I think it’s from not eating barely anything in the past two days. When I stand up I see black spots and my ears get clogged. Please let me know something asap.

i took 3 adderall pills in school today and the mg was 34 or 54 I forget. I’m 15yrs old & I hysterically cried every period at school. My joints turned purple & my skin was blue as well. My lips felt numb & I was basically a zombie. when someone would say something to me, it wouldn’t register until like 10 seconds later. Am I okay??

11:33 am May 21st, 2015

Hi Kenzie. How are you feeling now? If you are still noticing side-effects I’d advise you to tell your parents to take you to the hospital. What you describe is not normal.

My friend L.C. is addicted to adderall. Before she got an rx for it, she would steal, trade other pills & do other things just to get adderall. She found a doctor that would give her an rx for it starting at 20mg am & 20mg pm. The dr never tested her for ADD or ADHD and she doesn’t have either one. I do have ADHD, & she has stolen from me a few times. She stole 120mg from me yesterday. Our friendship is now over. I’ve talked to her about this & she has until 5pm today to return a total of 280mg (the total amount stolen), or I will file a police report & she will be arrested and her 1 year old son will be taken away, again. She treats her family horribly, is mean, disrespectful and is constantly lying to everyone. She lives with her parents who are much older, (she is 31 & her father is 73, mother 68), they don’t know what is wrong with her or why she has changed so much in the past 6 months, (how long she’s been taking adderall & too much of it). My rx is 30mg am, 10mg noon, 15mg 3pm. She takes 120mg at a time & doesn’t sleep for days. Her parents don’t know or understand what adderall is. I care about her, her son, & family very much. The dr that’s giving her the rx needs to be reported to the DEA. What can I do to help her & her family?

K, so i got my script refilled 4 days ago,(30mgXR). I took 1 before work, 1 after work, and 1 more that night. I had eaten a large hot dog from maverick before work, i stayed up all night then took 1 before work at 2pm, took 1 about two hours later, and took 1 at 8pm and 1 at 1230am. I didn’t sleep until 9am for about 7 hours. I ate small snacks during the day and half of a chicken fried steak and mashed potatos. Then took 1 at 8pm, 1 at 1230am, snorted half at 330am and i haven’t slept. So 285mg within 4 days ish. At 8am i took 2 5htp pills and its now 9am. I plan on starting my day now and i have a tattoo appointment at 6pm and other stuff to do today so i can’t take a nap and usually if i take one the day after staying awake all night on adderal it sort of balances my body out and makes me feel a lot better so am i good to take one in about an hour then one before i have to drive 45 minutes for my appointment?
Ps. Ive been taking them in normal doses for 3 years slowly building up my tolerance so my tolerance is very high now.

I took 6 of my prescribed adderall xr pills all were 30mg pills. Ever since then I’ve been fatigued but at the same time I’ve been up all night. Stomach feels very nauseated and I’ve been sweating so much my clothes are damp. I’ve also been getting light headaches and feeling shaky and nervous. I’m a 25 year old female and weigh about 175 pounds. Was that too many pills or is my nervousness just making me feel like this?

My daughter recently tried to overdose on her sister’s Adderall. She weighs about 100 pounds and took approximately 400 mg of extended release capsules. She suffered extreme psychosis and soaking sweat for over 2 days. This is 2 weeks later and she still has moments of questioning her vision or thinks she hears things. How long is this going to last? Is there permanent damage?

I have been taking 30mg twice a day for years. Just got my prescription refilled. Noticed the pills were different but did not think anything of it. After taking the 2nd pill. I started to read the bottle it said take once a day Come to find out the doctor wrote the prescription different without my knowledge. So now it’s 30mg once a day they are extended release. I am 60 years old weight 180. Should I be concerned about taking two instead of the one?

6:02 am July 15th, 2015

I turned 17 yesterday and decided to experiment with adderall. I took one pill around 7:30 and then took another maybe an hour later. It was alright at first until I realized that I couldn’t sleep. I stayed awake until about 8 am and managed to sleep for about 30 minutes. When I got up I was feeling very weird. My head was killing me and I was sweating a lot. I was really dizzy and nauseous and anytime I stud up it feels like there’s pressure in my head and a ringing in my ears. I thought about telling my mom to take me to the hospital but we’re having some money issues and I don’t want to stress her out. Not to mention I don’t want a drug charge possibly ruining my chances for college. By the middle of the day my right foot and toes were felling a little numb and moving them was a little tough. I tried to eat and drink a lot of water today hoping to hurry it out of my system. It’s now 10:30 pm and I’m hoping I’ll feel better in the morning. I really don’t want to ruin my relationship and trust with my mom not to mention my chances at college because of one stupid mistake. Please help me.

I have taken adderall in the past. Believe me when I tell you, you will know if you’ve taken to much. I took to much every time I used to do it and of course your heart rate goes up and you get jittery. One time I took too much in a short amount of time and it felt like my heart almost stopped. I had to run outside and get some air then I had a huge rush of adrenaline because I think I was literally about to die and my body was like NOPE, not today! Needless to say I don’t mess with that stuff anymore. If it’s prescribed to you take it wisely.

7:32 am September 8th, 2015

i’m 13 and i’m super sensitive to any kind of medicine I take a half pill of a short acting Adderall. I have ADHD and its been a year since i’ve taken this medicine. today my dad gave me the medicine. he overdosed me. he gave me a whole pill. im acting like im on crack I cleaned my room spotless and i am super manic and slightly confused and im uncontrollably cleaning things. i cant relax. i even felt the medicine kick in i felt like i was going to pass out. my legs felt heavy. i have also stopped cold turkey on my regular dose of adderall of 7 mg i shook like crazy like i was having a seizure during class and had to go home. it was terrible. i’m a super anxious person who has panic attacks often. i once had to go to a hospital because of one. should i get help? or stop taking medicine

11:45 am September 8th, 2015

Hi J. Yes, I suggest you should get immediate help. Ask your dad to drive you to the hospital.

Shelby
2:17 am September 15th, 2015

Hi my name is Shelby so the last 3 days I have taken about 150 mg of adderall, yesterday is when I took my prescribed dose which is 60 mg a day, and I have only been on the medication for about 2 weeks now. Last night I ended up with paramedics at my residence and taken to the hospital by ambulance. I was about to go to bed feeling fine, as I was watching tv I started to feel very restless and couldn’t sleep at all, plus I had shortness of breath and that is what was bothering me most I kept getting out of bed in panic, trying to breath normally and also pacing back and forth. I was a mess and it’s something I never expurienced before in my life. I do have history of anxiety but never had an anxiety attack. I had lots of other systems last night like difficulty speaking, dry mouth/funny taste, tingly in arms and legs, diziness, shortness of breath, my heart beat was very fast, and I couldn’t sit still, and the paramedics in the ambulance said My blood pressure was pretty high 157/107. When I got to the hospital they diagnosed me with an anxiety attack and gave me medication to calm down. They also check my heart and did an x-Ray of my heart and they said everything was fine. So I went home the same night at about 4:00 a.m. now it’s about 6:16 pm and I just had another mild episode like I did last night, and I haven’t taken any adderall today. But I’m scared for my life because when I have these episodes I feel like I’m going to die. Any advice?

3:09 am September 30th, 2015

Hello! I’m not prescribed adderall but I take it on occasion to help me get through long days of school followed by late nights due to my job and homework. So I’ve taken adderall plenty of times before and never had a problem. Today however I ended up taking 50mg from 9am and 3:30 pm. Around 4:30 or 5 (1 hour after my last dose of 10mg ir) I began to experience an irregular heart. It would race and pins and then pulse extremely slowly. My heart rate ranges from 90-60 bpm currently. I’m a cigarette smoker so I’m sure that doesn’t help. I’m also pretty anxious about my heart rate and because I’m on adderall. Also experiencing mild lightheadedness. I’m wondering if I should go visit the ER or ride this out and stay away from adderall from now on. Thanks!

2:52 pm October 5th, 2015

I’m a 20 year old female weighing between 130-135 lbs. It’s currently 7:43am, over the course of last night I took 3 & 1/2 pills, not sure of the dosage. A friend gave them to me because I was feeling weird after taking 400 milligrams of MDMA the night before. It was the largest amount of MDMA I had ever taken, I didn’t feel terrible but I just felt a little off. Probably mostly due to not being able to sleep too well since it kept me pretty awake, alert & restless. I took each Adderall pill probably 3-4 hours apart from the last. I’m not feeling bad, just can notice a few things that are “off”. I am hypoglycemic, so I get lightheaded very easily & can become very faint for a few short minutes. I was walking up stairs to enter into mine & my boyfriends room, & my eyesight went black & my head felt very light. I ended up just having to sit right in the door way because I didn’t trust myself to hold myself up with my legs. I think it may just be reacting with the left over MDMA in my system. Like I said, I don’t feel bad, & I don’t feel like anything and is going to happen. I have experience with taking several types of drugs & have learned to calm myself when feeling anxious or nervous after taking something. I plan to spend this Monday just relaxing in bed & getting vitamins & plenty of protein to boost myself back up. I have recently been experiencing some minor heart rate irregularities, not to due with an drug use really. I don’t take anything often, it’s just a social thing I do every few months. I think I’ve come to the conclude that I don’t need to take any stimulants while I’m having these heart beat issues, it seems to make it more noticeable, just hoping it doesn’t throw off my upcoming echocardiogram. Do you think that they may be possible for them to detect the use of stimulants through a heart test like that?

Hello,i am a prescribed Adderall user since I was 8, I am now 17 and am supposed to be taking 30mg a day, but I often forget (thanks to my adhd) so I had a lot of extra pills. well I have a history of depression, usually coming with anxiety attacks in certain situations. I have been fine lately but something came up… I had suicidal thoughts and took a handful of my Adderall. it was about 300 mg. I took them about an hour ago, and im not panicking because I realize that was a horrible decision. does anyone know if 300 mg would be enough to do serious harm, like enough to send me to the ER? because that would make my situation so much worse… do you think I could wait it out safely until the effects wear off?

Hi Ashley. You can call the Poison Control Center by dialing 1-800-222-1222 and speak with a poison expert that will assess your risk of overdose and advise you what you should do next.

Hi Tori. I advise you to tell your brother and seek medical help. It’s not fun to mess around with an overdose and your safety is more important than getting into trouble.

I was prescribed 1 20mg xr a day for adhd, but I have found my body holds a high tolerance for amphetamines, so I find that it’s not enough. I have taken as many as 4 in a day, now I barely feel 2. What would you reccomend for doses.

I take two 25s a day.. I’m very tolerant to stimulants and was wondering if 80mg was a good idea

5:33 pm November 3rd, 2015

Hi Swim. It’s not recommended unless it’s prescribed to you. Keep in mind that 70 mg of Adderall in one day is considered the maximum safe daily dose by the FDA.

I have taken adderal for my purposes . No more than 30 mg in one day. I e never had any problems besides he normal dry mouth and back ache side affect ext. my question is, is it okay for me to take a half a 20 mg Addie ,? Would I be likely to have a sudden death or od? I’m just Curious before I do it again.. I’ve never had problems before but just confused sense a 150 pound persons limit or fatal limit would than be 1300 mg or something like that.

Hi…I’m pretty sure you dont need to know my life story but I suffer from ADHD,Depression, anxiety, Insomnia, and ODD.
Allot of people think that it’s allot for a girl at 14 but I honestly think it’s normal.I’m prescribed with 40mg for my ADHD medicine I’m sorry for sounding like I don’t even know the name for my own disorder but they’ve put me on so many medications for it that I just stop trying know the name. Anyways things have been difficult for me almost all my life and now I feel scared because I am suicidal/have depression and because of this I feel like me knowing I have a stronger medicine that could kill me would make me want to abuse my medicine. In a way I have already done this by taking my medicine everyday just I feel like I’m not hungry which is un-healthy for me because I’m already under weight for my age as it is.I am 87.6 pounds and 14. I personally don’t know what to do. What really wanted to know was if the way I feel about or towards my medicine dose it make me a drug addict?
Thank you for your time

Hi Jake. All the risks and side effects are elaborated in this article: http://alcohol.addictionblog.org/adderall-and-alcohol-what-happens-when-you-mix-them/. I suggest you ask a friend to drive you to the hospital where medical professionals can assess your state and help you.

I’m 6’5 and about 205 pounds. I took an adderall (54mg) to study, and was wondering if it would be okay to take another one 7 hours later. I also had a very small portion of caffeine as well. Did not experience any side effects from the first pill.

Hi I just started taking 30 mg of adderall and I’ve taken 2 today for my exams I am not prescribed but I still can’t concentrate on any of my study and I’m debating to take another one to see if that will help I have not felt any of the symptoms of overdose or anything wrong with my body except from pain from lifting weights earlier in the day I’m am just wondering if it would be a good idea to take another one for the night and I am also tired and very hungry but that may be because of my weight training. What should I do?

I had an exam today for my history class and thought it would be a good idea to take 100mg instead of my daily dose of 25mg. I felt like I could take on the world the entire day, and then things got bad. my heart would beat super rapidly while I’m at rest and walking to my classes would make me feel like I just ran a marathon. I had 2 panic attacks so far today. I took the pills at 7:30am and it’s now 9:55pm and it’s slowly starting to calm down. I’m 16 years old and weigh about 160 at 6’0″. I’m extremely scared to fall asleep tonight and not even sure if I should start my regular dose back up in the morning. I have also been very aggressive and rude to others. I’m extremely scared and need help.

So I have final exams this week and I really wanted to do good on them so I decided to be dumb and buy adderall from my friend. I took 2 10mg pills yesterday at 6:00 pm ish and then I studied. Then I took a 30mg today at 7:20 am then waited 3 hours and then I took another 10mg pill. I don’t have ADHD or anything of the sort. I just heard that you would study hard while on this stuff. I was fine until 2:00 ish and around that time I started getting sweaty, upset stomach and jittery. Should I be worried?

I’ve been snorting a month supply of 20mg federally for years now. I snort about 10-14, 20mg instant release pills a day. My month supply lasts me about 4-7 day’s the most I don’t sleep for 3-5 days straight including nights. Not bragging I know it’s bad for me and it’s killing me. I’ve done every drug under the sun mainly stimulants like cocaine and meth. I guess since I’ve quit all those other drugs I’m just chasing the meth high I remember. I’m legally prescribed these and wanna quit but don’t wanna give up the high I get it sucks I swear this suit is amazing but it’s the devil to just like meth only difference is this is legal.

I took 6 adderall pills today at 11am. By 4pm i started hallucinating, shaking, and have a fast heartbeat. It is currently 1:40am therefore its been 13 hours since i took them. The hallucinations stopped, but I am still shaking now and then, and my heart rate is still fast. Given that i have lasted this long, does it mean i am safe? Bad wording, but i hope you understand..

I thought going over my prescription to get school work done would be a good idea. It was stupid.
Yesterday i took 70mg’s of Adderall, yet I felt fine.
Today I did the same. Yet I experienced these symptoms after 11:35AM:
Tiredness, shaky, longer breaths, a bit dehydrated, faster & stronger heart pulse, less emotion, wanted more solitude, a tiny bit dizzy, and more aware of things going on.
I am 13 years old, I weight 158.57 Lbs. and my prescription is 40mg’s of adderall in the morning. I believe I have been diagnosed with moderately high ADHD.

My pupils are so dilated I’m honestly scared, I feel like I’m not seeing things right, and I’m exhausted but then again I’m not at the same time… I look about 69 MG yesterday and only got about 3 hours of restless sleep.. I have to work today so I stupidly took more and I honestly didn’t even keep track… They where 10 MG caps.. I’m actually pretty scared right now… Help please!

Hi, I don’t have a prescription for Adderall but on Tuesday I took a 60mg at 8am because I had a lot of tests and projects that day. I ended up going to bed around 12am. I felt jittery and awake and i couldn’t stop moving my leg when i sat down, and i was talking really quick and alot until about 3pm. When I got home at around 3:15 I wasn’t tired at all infact I was motivated enough to clean and organize my entire room and bathroom and do all my homework, and then go to night service for church.. Today (friday) I took 60mg again at 8am because of tests today. It helped me alot to stay focused and ask more questions on the subject. I did talk quickly but not as fast as when I took it my first time (tuesday)… I also didn’t fall asleep at 12 in the morning like I did on Tuesday, im going to go to bed around 10 because I’m already tired and its 8pm… But my question is would it be okay to take two 60mg (so it would 120mg) next Friday? I have tests and projects and I’m also doing stuff after school and trying to stay up till like 3am. I would take both at 8am but if I can’t take both at once what time should I take the 2nd 60mg? Or should i not even take the 2nd one? would I overdose by taking 120mg in a day? Also Im going to be drinking Friday night around 11pm.. Please tell me what I should do and answer all my questions. I am a female in 10th grade in highschool, and i weigh 125-130 pounds, and I am 15 years old. Thanks and please get back to me as soon as possible.

She is very Irate and super mad at me because we stopped after going to sams to get a hamburger at whatta burger. I could not eat mine the Adderall had suppressed my appetite she is very angry do you think she has a legitimate complaint.

I went to a rave with my friends, but I am not into hard drugs like Molly and whatnot, so I took two adderall pills. one was 20 IR and the other was XR (not sure of the dosage). I have been dealing with insomnia before I did this but it has really sky rocketed since. I’ve gotten a total of 8 hours of sleep tops in the past three days (which was how long ago I took the pills). should I be waiting this out to see if it gets better, or should I be seeking medical attention?

I am prescribed 80mg of Adderall per day. 20 MG regular and 60MG of XR. I have been taking this level for nearly 5 years. I had a traffic accident, was blood tested and now charged with DWI. My blood-level numbers for Adderall were really high, but I truly only took what I was prescribed. How do I find out what the normal blood level should be if you were taking my prescribed dosage. Is it truly unique for each person based upon body weight and other factors or is there some rule of thumb that says if I consume the dosage I described and had a blood test that my levels would be within a certain range.

I’m 16 and I turn 17 in July. I dropped out of high school August of last year to work and get away from a bad home life. I didn’t do well in school due to having ADHD with no medication and lack of motivation.
It’s now February and I went back to high school with a whole new dedicated mindset to achieve a double doctorate in Physics and Psychology but still currently working full time. I’m trying to learn 5 years worth of math on my own at home while going to school and working. I have no social life nor time for anything. To help me get stuff done I started taking unprescribed Adderall (about 20 mg-30 mg) every couple to a few days whenever I felt I needed the boost. I also drink coffee sometimes while studying and a majority of the time take a quarter of xanax bar to help with the shakiness. I love how much I get done, how I feel and how much more confident I feel around people with this.
I want to go to a doctor to get it prescribed but I’m scared he won’t give me adderall if I ask, but that’s irrelevant.
About me: 16 years old, 100 pounds, 5’4, history of depression/minor anxiety. My dad and my grandmother also have issues of high blood pressure, but I’ve never been checked for it.
What should I ask him for that will give me the same focused/calm feel as Adderall and Xanax? Do I go to a Pyschiatrist for that?
Exactly how dangerous is the dose I’m taking now?
Thanks.

Hello.

My name is Craig.
I know it isn’t good for anyone … Myself included… So I am not looking for attitude from anyone lol. (About my own choices etc)… But I have a quick question for whoever it may be… So “Anyone”.

Okay… I had a completely full bottle of 30mg Adderall “Tablets” 4 day’s ago.!! … Not XR’s … Tablets..! The prescription is 1 ..30mg adderall …twice daily. …. Etc etc… Lol. But.. I am and have never been a fan of being easy on stuff.. Haha. Especially adderall… !! So… Anyways.. I looked in the bottle to reassure myself that there were still plenty left..! But.. Noticed when i had counted, that there were already 20 of them gone!!!. So I took “”20 “”of the 30mg Adderall Tablets in less than 4 full days!. Is that unusual. … I can literally take over or around 300 to 350mg in one pop and be like ahh thats nothin!! I use it for music related stuff. I’ve been a singer / songwriter my entire life that i remember lol. Was a Child ..when i started. I can sing anything this world could ever throw my way lol. No joking! I can do amazing runs and outstanding vocal acrobatics like the best musicians out there!!. I have a fan base of over 30000 fans/followers already. .The question i have is this…. Is the reason i can take so much adderall and not be hurting or twitching etc due to the fact that im belting at the top of my lungs and burning rapid energy?? I sing for almost 12 hrs at a time… Daily!!. Not all belt stuff lol. But…. Is that a crazy amnt??? Lol. Maybe for some but not for me? Seems to be working like a magical mother fucker. Thank u!! I await a reply.

I took the whole 45mg dosage at about 9am and it’s 12:30am and I’m still very hyper and awake, I have had several mental breakdowns today and very bad headaches. I have never taken anything like this before and I don’t think it’s going too well for my body, I have only drinken 3 bottles of water and a cup of coffee and no food at all. I just really need advice on how to come down from this. I really regret it and feel so tired.

Hi,
I am prescribed one adderall a day (I don’t remover the dosage, it’s low like 20 mg), well last night around 10:30 I took two adderall and a 6 hr energy shot, I barely ate dinner and hadn’t slep for over 24 hrs now. It has been 15 hrs since I took the adderall and energy shot and I’m still going. I feel exhausted and over energized at the same time. I feel nauseous. I’m jittery and I want to cry. To make matters worse I was also drinking Pepsi….I just want this to stop! I want to sleep! I took a klodopin and a half about 45 minutes ago and still nothing. I feel like I could run laps but I’m also so exhausted…..I feel crazy. This has never happened before but lately it has taken my normal dosage (one pill a day) hours to kick in….help please

Tonight I accidentally took a 2nd dose of my prescribed adderall 30mg XR. I take it every morning around 8am and did this today as usual. Tonight while making dinner I went to take a Tagamet (antacid) and was not paying attention and took a dose of adderall 30mg XR. Should I be worried about this? What can I do, I have two small children and I’m on my own.
