Dog Specialist: Dr B, Veterinarian replied 2 years ago

Ok, since you are not online I will go ahead and answer you......

We can see symptoms with adderall under 0.5mg/kg and your dog is right at the toxic dose level. 45 pounds is 20 kg times 0.5mg/kg is 10 mg......
Clinical signs of toxicity may include: Agitation, Hyperactivity, Disorientation,Fast heart rate, High blood pressure.
If your dog is having any of these signs now, going to your veterinarian or local ER is recommended because they can give apomorphine which is very reliable for causing vomiting.
If you would like to try to make your dog vomit at home Then you can give 1 teaspoon of 3% solution of hydrogen peroxide orally per 10 pounds of body weight. If this does not work you can repeat the dose once in about 15 minutes. Be very careful when giving this and do not administer too fast so you don't cause your dog to aspirate the medication into the lungs.

I hope this helps you. Sincerely, DRB

Please hit rate my service as that is the only way I am compensated.Thank you very much!
