Adderall Overdose Stories

In recent years, more and more students in high stake academic settings have been turning to Adderall to help them keep up with scholastic demands. Approximately 15% of college students, according to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, reportedly engage in non-medical or recreational use of Adderall. Unfortunately, for some students like recovering addict Caitlin Myers, Adderall often begin as early as high school.  

In her adderall overdose story, Myers confessed that “I snorted Adderall alone in the school bathroom during lunch.” With the surge in use in the last two decades, Adderall overdose stories have become more prevalent among teenagers and young adults. Adderall is a prescription medication that is known for its ability to enhance cognitive clarity.  It is typically prescribed for patients with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). This drug however, contains amphetamine and dextroamphetamine which are powerful central nervous system substances.

Regular use of amphetamine can lead to increased tolerance levels for the drug which is manifested by the need to continually increase the dosage to achieve the same effects. Then, if drug use continues, users can experience dependence and addiction that put them at risk of a drug overdose. Individuals who become dependent on Adderall may experience uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms when they try to stop using the drug.  These may include anxiety, depression, increased cravings, paranoia and slower reflexes to name a few.  Even though these symptoms are not usually life-threatening, after a period of abstinence, tolerance levels for Adderall naturally returns to normal. These lowered tolerance levels however, can pose a significant risk of drug overdose if use of Adderall is resumed abruptly.

 It is important to recognize the symptoms of Adderall addiction, which may include, but are not limited to:

  • Uncontrollable shaking
  • Becoming extremely restless or nervousness
  • Changes in sleep habits
  • Speech impairment
  • Loss of interest in food leading to weight Loss
  • Hostile or aggressive behavior
  • Hallucinations
  • Paranoia
  • Speech impairments

Addiction to Adderall can be treated successful.  Treatment helps users to safely detox to stop the abuse and deal with the issues that may be perpetuating the  of this drug.  The detoxification process is followed by a comprehensive program of recovery to provide relapse prevention education and training which is an important element in achieving long term sobriety.
