My chihuahua found one of my Adderall 30mg extended release…

Customer Question
My chihuahua found one...

My chihuahua found one of my Adderall 30mg extended release tablets. I guess I accidentally dropped one of them. She only ate a few beads in the capsule, but she is acting strange. Moving her head constantly she seems really hyper. I’m scared and don’t know what to do. Is there anything I can do to help her?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if your dog will be able to digest that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your dog?

No nothing else. I’m just really worried. She is constantly moving her head around
