    What are the side effects of Methamphetamine?

Hi . I am 7 weeks pregnant and yesterday went to the doctors to get the abortion pill. I took the first pill there and am supposed to take the rest 24/48 hours after that (24hours would be anytime after 11:30 am this morning) my question has to do with drugs. I hav a roommate who is prescribed meth for their ADD. We usually buy our own groceries and don t really share however I was really thirsty earlier and drank some of their juice. It caused me to throw up however which is when I found out they had put a dose of their meds in the bottle I had drank. My question is since I am supposed to finish my abortion with the pills at home am I safe to do so considering what just happened.. Or shld I wait a few more hours or..?

Adverse Reactions of Methamphetamine are:
CV: Palpitations; tachycardia; hypertension; arrhythmias. CNS: Hyperactivity; dizziness; insomnia; euphoria; restlessness; tremors; a headache. GI: Dry mouth; unpleasant taste; diarrhea; constipation; anorexia. DERM: Urticaria.

One single dose of Methamphetamine is unlikely to cause any serious adverse effects.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
