Hello KaeleeLiviingston. If you/the person took more than the 36mg dose (considered to be the dose for an adult) I would contact the nearest medical professional or emergency room, explain how much the person has taken, and if necessary what action might be taken. Regards pledge
An overdose of Concerta can be fatal.
Overdose can cause vomiting, agitation, tremors, muscle twitching, seizure (convulsions), confusion, hallucinations, sweating, fast or pounding heartbeat, blurred vision, dry mouth and nose, and fainting.
Seek emergency medical attention or call the Poison Help line at 1-800-222-1222.
You should go to the nearest Emergency Room or if you don't want to do that you should at least call Poison Control and ask them what to do and them make sure that you FOLLOW their advice!
I am prescribed 72mg per day and i am doing well. I think it is important to keep to the advice of your doctor, because taking more, even if you are feeling completely wrong can have adverse effects and make things worse.
If you were to overdose on concrete you may start to experience Muscle twitching Sweating Hallucinations Increases hear rate Blurred vision Agitation Dry mouth Headache Hypertension Hyperactivity mood swings and could even be fatal because it could cause unregulated heartbeat especially if you’ve got a heart condition or heart problems but if I’m going to be honest with you I think it mostly comes down to certain factors like your overall Health,age,
wight how much tolerance you have to it and stuff like that like me for example I take two 36 concerta xl a day so altogether 72mg a day and I always crush them and chew them I know that you’re not meant to do that and today I decided that I wanted to take more then that just to see how it would affect me and whether i could get higher from taking more more than that was recommended so I decided to take instead of just two tables I took over 7 tables over a period of 6 hours witch is same as taking 252mg off concerta within 6 hours
my friend found out that I took that much and she insisted that I want to A&E to got checked over even though I wasn’t showing any signs of overdosing so when I went to A&E and they did my blood tests heart monitoring & bold pressure all off it came back as normal and I was discharged a few hours later I know what I did was stupid and I shouldn’t have taken as much as I did but it just shows you can take a large amount and still be ok
