What to do after taking overdose of Vyvanse?

My daughter, who is on 40mg of Vyvanse daily for ADHD by mistake took three pills at once, thinking she was taking her vitamins. She weighs 120 lbs. and is 5 7 . She has been up all night. What should she do? How can she get some sleep tonight? And is this an emergency?

Hello,

The adult dose would be maximum 60 mg/day in divided doses. Vyvanse can cause sleeping trouble. Consult your doctor/ER in case of overdosage.

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

Take care

Regards,
Dr Tushar Kanti Biswas, Internal Medicine Specialist
