Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand that Rizzo swallowed 5 60mg tablets of Vyvance. I am sorry to hear about that. Can you please tell me about how much does Rizzo weigh so I can calculate the toxicity potential? Thank you. I will be standing by.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I'd say 50 pounds
Expert:  Scott Perry replied 2 months ago.

Unfortunately, Rizzo consumed a toxic dose. The toxic dose is 227mg based on her weight and she consumed about 300 mg. Therefore, I would recommend to take her to a veterinarian as soon as possible so they can induce vomiting and give supportive care.
