So I'm a college student and it's time for finals. I took 30mg of addorall from a friend, thinking it wouldn't be a big deal because 30mg really isn't that much. I smoked a little weed afterwards and got the worst hallucinations. This was on Tuesday at about 5 oclock. Right now it's Thursday morning and I'm still feeling extremely anxious, and like my heart is racing. On my left hand my smallest finger and the one beside of it occasionally go numb but the feeling returns fairly quickly. I feel like I'm having a constant panic attack. I've been eating and drinking plenty of water to help cleanse my system, but I honestly feel like I'm going crazy. I know most of it might be in my mind, but I've heard horror stories about people dying from this drug. For my own emotional benefit I just need to know if I'm okay. I'm not use to after effects for anything lasting a day and a half past the time of use. Have I done permenant damage or am I just freaking myself out?
You probably wonât have permanent brain damage if you took 30mg Adderal only once. But you have to promise yourself that you will never abuse Adderal again because you may become addicted. Addiction to Adderal can cause psychotic disorders similar to schizophrenia.
So Doctor, you're saying being addicted to Adderral can cause schizophrenic type symptoms even in prescribed dosages? In all my readings, which has been extensive, I have never heard or read that before. I read overdose can cause symptoms similar to schizophrenia. Long-term abuse also. So if someone was addicted to 30 mg. daily, they can exhibit schizophrenic symptoms?
