Avatar m tn I of course could not sleep and was restless. I had no overdose symptoms though with the exception of a racing heart. Anyway, the next day I got up, though I don;t believe I actually slept, and got a 5 Hour Energy drink as I was pretty crashed but still pretty awake too. I went about my day as usual and I thought everything was going to be ok. Then Sunday night, I had to poop and ended up getting a hemorrhoid which I had never experienced before. get's scarier.
673186 tn?1225987525 Yes, 140 mgs is a very very large dose and most people would feel minor or severe overdose symptoms, extreme sweating, vomiting, diarrhea, rapid heartbeat, high anxiety, high blood pressure, jittery. It can be extremely. I experienced that once and it was horrible.
Avatar n tn In addition, some patients experience less (or absence) of rebound symptoms when they use Adderall, even when both are effective relative to target symptoms. The major reason for increasing the dose of any of the stimulant medications is the impact on the target symptoms. Usually these targets involve hypermotoric behavior, inattention and/or impulsivity.
Avatar m tn this was due to a cocaine overdose which in reality is the same as speed/adderall etc...races the heart and can do permanent damage...he has "locked in syndrome"...he is awake and alert but can not move a muscle in his body...the family is uneducated and will not make him a dnr(do not resusitate)...he has been coded over and over,,,poor thing...
Avatar n tn I'm sorry I'm late finding this post and I hope by now you've either started feeling better, or have sought medical attention. More than likely what you're experiencing (experienced) was a case of low blood sugar. As I'm sure you know, the Glyburide-Metformin helps to lower the blood sugar of someone who has diabetes. If you take it and don't have diabetes, it can cause an unsafe drop in your blood sugar.
Avatar n tn Not only am I a paramedic, I am also a frequent adderall user. This is all common symptoms of a CNS (Central nervous system) overdose. Basically you have just overdosed on Adderall. Don't freak out, or I should say try your best not to. Keep in mind this medicine acts on the "fight or flight" response of the body. The "pounding" heart, elevated HR and tingling can all be explained.
Avatar n tn I know someone that I care about dearly who takes 25 mg of Adderall a day for ADD. The other night she was taking pills like candy and going insane with them and just swallowing them. She took about 280 -300 mg of adderall all in less than a couple of hours was basically like on speed. She is 120 pounds, 16 years old and is about 5'4''. She couldnt eat and was having panic attacks, and puked, but refused to get help. She wouldnt let me help her and i was afraid of her.
Avatar n tn I recently discovered that my 49 year old wife has been taking my sons adderall for a year. She has been taking 20mg. per day. She also takes celexa for depression. I am concerned that she is addicted and will have withdrawal problems. I have hidden the adderall from her and she no longer has it available. She relizes that she has a problem and has commited to quit. What are the withdrawal symptoms, how soon after she has quit to they show, how long to they last and how can I help.
711721 tn?1229569242 First marijuana, got addicted to cigarettes, drank occasionally, took an adderall or other small-time prescription drug occasionally. However, nothing ever too serious. I didnt like any of it though. I wanted something that would take me beyond the edges of the human mind. Basically, i wanted to trip. To make a long story short, i found myself with what i was looking for at my finger tips. Dextromethorphan hydrobromide, or Dxm HBr. Commonly found in cough and chest congestion medicines.
Avatar n tn I take Adderall and have daily for about five months and occasionally get an uncomfortable tingling/numbness on my arms and face but today it wasn't just uncomfortable, I thought I was going to die. While driving I began to feel a tingling sensation in my face, arms and legs. The sensation slowly intencified and soon my whole body was tingling unbelievably (worst in my chest and abbs). I steped out of my car and could barly walk and had little control over my muscles.
Avatar m tn Vyvanse, 50 mg 1 in the am Clonidine 0.1 mg 1 at bedtime adderall 5 mg at 1 pm everyday 7 year old boy is taken this has lost a lot weight, has no appetite, can not look at u, hangs head all the time very quiet Are the signs normal?
6601982 tn?1383754936 htm You are still hypotensive, and the way you feel (the sweaty/cold feeling and dizziness) could be from the adderall overdose, not the sub w/ds. You're not nearly out of the woods yet, because you ingested an extended release formulation. Crushing an XR med doesn't negate the extended release component of the med completely. I really wish you'd go to the ER. If something is really wrong (ie cardiac, organ failure, etc) the longer you wait, the harder it will be to reverse.
Avatar m tn A couple days ago, I made the stupid decision to take a few extra ADD meds to help me study. After 7-10 10 milligram Adderall tablets(taken two or three at a time with at least 4-6 hour interval in between) and day and a half of studying without sleep, I started feeling quite weird; my heart began beating very fast(~130 BPM), and my extremities began to tingle. My dad drove me to the hospital where, after lying on a hospital bed for a couple hours, they told me that I would be fine.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with MS about 6 months ago. I was prescribed Adderall by my nerologist to help me with my fatigue. Before I started taking the med I couldn't function after being awake for 8 hours and I was missing 2 to 3 days of work a week. Since I started taking it my productivity at work has increased, and I haven't missed any days. I also can have a social life now because I don't want to just go home and go to bed after work.
Avatar n tn I believe the weed was the key issue with my final condition, the symptoms I describe above are very much weed-centric, but the adderall combined absolutely intensified and excellerated the weed symptoms to such a degree that I honestly thought I was losing it... I quit doing both drugs about two weeks ago with intermittent adderall alone and I've been feeling aweful, absolutely aweful and low....
Avatar f tn First off, does anyone know what happened to me? Did I have a heart attack or overdose? FYI I was addicted to adderall the past 3 years and was actually clean for 4 months before I started recently taking again. Since then I have been having what I think are panic attacks. I had one the morning after I woke up from the experience, that whole day I was very short of breath and pretty much terrified I was about to go thru that again.
Avatar n tn It's adderall. Have you read all the side effects of adderall before? You should. It crazy all the stuff it can do to a person. Even some of the "symptoms" of addreall "overdose" or "abuse"....are really common side effects. With any medication there are side effects...but whats common?? 1/100....2/100...25/100?? I mean do most people throw up, have tremors, depression, uninary tract infects to a precription sleep aid or a allergy pill? I doubt it.
Avatar f tn I've been on brand name Adderall XR 15mg pills for a few months now, and I've never had any problems with side effects other than suppressed appetite. Thanks to our new insurance only covering the generic, I had to switch to a drug "identical" to the brand. When I initially told my mom I was worried about the switch, she told me they're the exact same thing. She's a pharmacist, so I took her word for it. Fast forward to today, when I started the generic. The day was fine.
Avatar f tn Hi there, Yes, Adderall can cause withdrawals when it's used recreationally, abused, and sometimes unintentionally. Something that you really need to be aware of is that toxic symptoms and signs of overdose can happen even with low dosage milligrams. Popping Adderall every couple of hours will only exacerbate side effects because they are usually intended as extended release capsules/caplets, to be used only once daily. The amount you have taken in the last few days is seriously dangerous.
Avatar n tn This Tongue problem is the side effect of using Adderall medicine. Adderall should be used as prescribed and should avoid overdose, this tongue problem is a minor side effect and if your problem isn't resolved thn you should need to contact your health specialist. Maybe there is a issue with your dosage.
Avatar f tn Seek emergency medical attention or call the Poison Help line at 1-800-222-1222. An overdose of Adderall can be fatal. Overdose symptoms may include restlessness, tremor, muscle twitches, rapid breathing, confusion, hallucinations, panic, aggressiveness, unexplained muscle pain or tenderness, muscle weakness, fever or flu symptoms, and dark colored urine. These symptoms may be followed by depression and tiredness.
Avatar n tn He may need immediate medical attention if the symptoms have not resolved. Overdose of Adderall with is an amphetamine can be toxic or deadly. Please make sure that this is addressed. My best wishes to both of you.
Avatar n tn A Ritalin overdose could be extremely dangerous and in many instances, could be life-threatening. The symptoms of a Ritalin overdose may include but may not be limited to: abdominal cramps, aggressiveness, confusion, depression, diarrhea, fatigue, hallucinations, high fever, hallucinations, high or low blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, nausea, panic, rapid breathing, restlessness, vomiting, tremor, convulsions or coma.
Avatar n tn I just wondered how severe my case was. I was prescribed adderall 3 yrs ago. started at 10mg twice a day, i did that for about 6 month, then went up to 15 in the morning 10 after lunch....long story short i really liked the high and started taking it 3 times a week and now i take it daily, and on any given day ill take up to as much as 150mg to just 70 or 80. i believe my body is on the verge of a continuous overdose but at the same time i have some withdraw symptoms.
Avatar f tn My 8 year old son was diagnosed with ADHD when he was 6 years old. After trying a few medications, his doctor chose Concerta as his daily medicine. It seemed to help a little with his so called "hyper" behavior. However, the doctor has increased the dosage a few times and my son is now taking 54mg.
Avatar f tn I also took 30mg a day and continued after the stroke, my symptoms became worse and worse. Basically, the overdose side effects of any drug or substance will occur even with a small amount. Soon you will not be able to go to sleep (Insomnia) even on 30 mg until after it has cleared your system. You will be awake constantly and might even lay down for 8 hours but your body will not fully rest until it is out of your system (24 - 48hrs) You body is already at the maximum fatigued point.
Avatar f tn Well, see when I switched from Concerta to Adderall, I just stopped the Concerta and went to taking the Adderall XR. After a few months the XR did not seem to work very long or throughout the day. So, in 2007, I went on Adderall short acting pill form which generic form is amphetamine salts or amphetamine mix tabs. With this pill, first of all, it is extremely inexpensive. I pay $30 for 180 tabs 20 mg each. I cut each in half and take each half 4 times a day a total of 40mg.
