Get emergency help immediately if any of the following symptoms of overdose occur:
Symptoms of overdose
dizziness, faintness, or lightheadedness when getting up from a lying or sitting position suddenly
feeling sad or empty
lack of appetite
loss of interest or pleasure
muscle cramps or spasms
muscle pain or stiffness
physical attempt to injure
trembling or shaking of legs, arms, hands, or feet
--- Trouble concentrating---
pounding in the ears
I hope you get well soon.
all of the non-fatal "overdose" symptoms maso posted sound a lot more like what it feels like to come down from any amphetamine. it sucks, but its not on its own deadly.
I had this problem & a few others when I first started on adderall xr. my initial prescribed dose was 10 mg in the morn (this was after discovering 5 made me pass out). I found myself getting really uncomfortable by about 1 - 2pm. I take one 5 mg cap (half of my morning dose) about 5 hours after my morning dose. if I have a really long day, i take another so I dont forget what im doing :)
this is just what worked for me, of course talk to your doc.
