Hello my name is***** am an American board-certified pediatrician with over 15 years of clinical experience and I am happy to help you. Please do not be overly concerned, nothing dangerous should occur with a partial Adderall ingestion. I would keep an eye on your son and watch for any signs such as extreme irritability, nervousness, restlessness, rapid shallow breathing, or if he complains of his heart racing. More than likely he will behave similar to how a child his age might behave if they had consumed a large amount of sugar or caffeine. Can I answer anything else for you today?

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
