Customer Question

Customer: ***** *****
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: My 19 month son may have swallowed/taken/sucked on 1 pill or 1/2 (there were a couple that were broken in half from my use) of a 20 mg adderall (prescribed presc. for for) about 1 hour ago. I am not confident that he did, but a old bottle of unused pills was cracked and he found it under the sink. I didn't realize it was cracked and found most of the pills on the floor (there were bout 5-7 in the container when he found)...should i be concerned?
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Pediatrics Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?

Also, he seems chattier than normal and possibly slightly hyper, but that could just be my imagination running wild due to my concern...

Thank you for your question.

I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.

As you did not see him to take the tablets, you can watch him.

If he develops any symp***** *****ke seizure, breathing difficulty, palpitation, aggressiveness etc. you need to take him to doctor urgently.

However, he may not have taken any & should be fine.

I hope this information will be helpful.

If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
