Exclamation I think I accidentally took 2 pills today. HELP!

I took my Vyvanse 70mg at 7:30 this morning before work (which is rare because if I do, it won't last all day) and when I got to work I think I took another one. I'm used to taking it at work between 9:30-10:30 AM so I can get all day coverage. I took it at home today because I wasn't rushing as usual and had time to take it. Well now I'm shaky, sweating and my blood pressure is 149/92. My heart feels like it's about to pop out of my chest! I took another one of my blood pressure pills and my daily 2mg klonopin hoping to quickly bring it down. What's really freaking me out is that my left arm is hurting. The pain comes and goes. Could I possibly be having a heart attack? Has this happened to anyone?

If you think are having a heart attack/heart issues, please call 911 or at least your doctor.

Good luck and I hope everything is ok!

I did this the other day and realized what I had done about an hour later. Btw, I am on 70 too. I was okay, just very agitated, higher heart rate, bad mood. I would recommend you call your doctor or go to the ER, but you should be okay. Feel better.

Re: I think I accidentally took 2 pills today. HELP!

uh, this is probably too late, but...
yeah, if you think you may be having a heart attack, always see your doctor.

but, stimulants are taken in far worse overdoses by abusers, and it usually (!) only gives them a heart attack or other serious effects if they have an underlying heart disease, high blood pressure, etc. - your blood pressure was very mildly elevated - everything up to 140/90 is still normal. hypertensive crisis is from about 200 systolic on - if you experience systolic blood pressures close to this point, seek medical attention IMMEDIATELY.

otherwise, for amphetamines there's a rule that says the more acidic your urine is, the faster you will metabolise the amphetamines. so, your best bet would be to take pure ascorbic acid (vitamin c, pure, available at pharmacys OTC) in low doses every hour or so with a glass of water to flush the drug out of your system.

as for your blood pressure pills, be careful. i dont know what you're taking, but just taking more than you were prescribed can be dangerous, too, if you dont know what you're doing.

hope you're alright by now.

In the future, as soon as you take your pill for the day, write the date on a sticky note and put the sticky note on the bottle. Then if you reach for the bottle a couple hours later, forgetting you already took your meds, you'll see today's date on the bottle and know that you're done for the day.
