What Are The Repercussions Of Overdose Of Vyvanse?
there are various measures...
if it's a recent ingestion of the drug then the doctor will try to pump it out of the stomach by placing a tube through the nostril to the stomach. Activated charcoal can be given through the tube to reduce absorption of the drug.
If the drug has already shown its effects then potential complications have to be managed. Benzodiazepines can be used to prevent agitation and seizures. The blood pressure and heart rhythm has to be managed appropriately and of course closely monitored. The body temperature has to be monitored, because hyperthermia is a risk. In such a case, aggressive cooling with ice packs or whole body immersion into cold water or ice is tried. Sometimes the muscles may have to be pharmaceutically paralyzed to avoid further temperature elevations.
So in conclusion, if the drug has already been absorbed then supportive measures and management of the complications have to be adopted.
