Possible Adderall overdose, please help. - November 26th 2011, 04:49 AM

I won't go in to too much detail explaining how I'm usually smart regarding my drug use, so please just take my word on it.*
I won't even mix acetaminophen with a narcotic without reading about possible interactions.

For some reason, today I took 150 mg of Adderall XR, over a 12 hour time span. I did not realize I took so much until just now.*
I'm a girl, and weigh a little over one hundred pounds.*
Earlier while I was out, my heart was pounding in a very irregular pattern, I felt nauseous which has never happened on Adderall before, and my breathing was incredibly fast and short.*
I feel alright now, but have been up for almost 45 hours, and see no chance of sleep yet again tonight.*
I want to take 5 mg Oxycodone, but my common sense is telling me that's a horrible idea; HOWEVER, I haven't found one article or story on them being a particularly dangerous combination. But none included such a high dose of amphetamine either.

Did I overdose?*
Can I take a small dose of 5 mg Oxycodone to help me sleep, safely tonight?*
Thanks in advance*

I'm not completely sure what happened to make you have these symptoms, but I really wouldn't suggest adding more meds into your system, even if a lot of time has passed. Maybe you should call the doctors and schedule an appointment or even go to the 24 hr clinic. Medicine is something you need to take seriously, and I'm not saying you didn't, but I really don't want to see you getting really sick because of all these pills.

Exert your talents, and distinguish yourself, and don't think of retiring from the world, until the world will be sorry that you retire

I think that its time to go to the doctor. Tell him all your problems and maybe he will proscribe you a few different medications. Then stick to them.

Dont live your life always medicated. This is something that needs to get fixed before you end up hurting yourself to a very high extent or end up hurting someone else.

I hope you do the right think.

If you need any help let me know.


I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...
