Adderal (dextroamphetamine and amphetamine salts) will cause agitation at a dose of 0.25 mg/lb but seizure and perhaps coma at as little at 1-1.5 mg/lb. 10 mg is a dangerous dose for a cat and so your cat should be decontaminated at a veterinary ER at your earliest convenience. I regret that I'm not allowed to correspond with you outside of this venue. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish but I'd rather you were on your way to the ER.
