My dog, kota, got into my adderall prescription last night. She weighs 60 lbs, and consumed about 80 mg of adderall. This occurred at approximately 7:00 pm last night EST. She has been drinking water, ate last night, but I'm not sure what to be concerned over/do now

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

Now if she had this last night, we are in a position where we cannot block absorption and instead need to focus on supportive care as needed. Now she has had a 2.96mg/kg dose here and at that rate we often can see agitation, rapid heart rate, panting, muscle tremors and sometimes even seizures and severe sedation/collapse. Now that all said, if she is not showing signs at this stage, we'd have to question if Kota actually had 80mg (or any at all) since usually symptoms usually start within 1-2 hours of ingestion. So, at this point and if she isn't showing signs, we'd just want to keep her calm (perhaps in a quiet, dimly lit room) and keep a close eye on her. Perhaps check where she got into the bottle for lost tablets. Though if we were to see any of the above then we'd need the local vet to use cyproheptadine (Periactin) +/- sedation if she were agitated alongside IV fluids to help her through this, but at the moment if she hasn't any of these signs, we'd just keep an eye on her for 24 hours and hopefully have no issue here.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.
