Encourage him to walk around after you have given it, to encourage mixing of his stomach contents.

How much aderall has he had access to?

Ask Your Own Cat Veterinary Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
A small amount of a 30mg XR
Cat Veterinarian: Richard Rawling,
 replied 11 months ago

Ok, if the peroxide has not been effective, it would be worth taking him to your vet who will be able to administer apomorphine which is much more effective at inducing vomiting.

After the vomiting ahs subsided, he would also benefit from administering activated charcoal. This will help minimize the uptake of the drug from his digestive system. It should be given at 1-4g per pound 3x daily until his poop turns black.

Ask Your Own Cat Veterinary Question
Cat Veterinarian: Richard Rawling,

I would recommend having a vet induce vomiting.

If he has absorbed any of the drug, you should be looking for signs of restlessness, hyperactivity, twitching, seizures, panting, lethargy, muscle tremors and dilated pupils. If you see any of these signs I would recommend having him checked out as an emergency.

Do you have access to activated charcoal?

Ask Your Own Cat Veterinary Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I do
Cat Veterinarian: Richard Rawling,
 replied 11 months ago

Then I would recommend keeping a close eye on him and administering ~40g of charcoal every 8 hours to try and minimze absorption of the drug from his digestive system.

Just started giving it to him with some food. What symptoms should I be looking for?

Well he is not acting out of the ordinary. But he is already a weird cat. I’m not sure if he has symptoms or not
Cat Veterinarian: Richard Rawling,
 replied 11 months ago

In that case you will just need to keep a close eye on things. You have done all you can without seeing a vet.
