Dextroamphetamine Sulfate Tablets are used to treat Narcolepsy and ADHD in both children and adults. The medication is considered a stimulant and should always be taken with caution. When patients regularly use a larger amount of this medication than is necessary, there is a higher risk of becoming dependent on the medication and experiencing symptoms of withdrawal if Dextroamphetamine Sulfate is stopped. Additionally, consuming large amounts of the drug can result in serious overdose.
Symptoms of Dextroamphetamine Sulfate overdose include gastrointestinal issues, severe fluctuations in blood pressure, fever, hallucinations, convulsions, rapid heartbeat and coma, among other symptoms. These symptoms can be severe and potentially fatal, so care should always be taken with dosing amounts. If an overdose is suspected, call 911 or find medical attention immediately. You could be at risk for serious medical complications if you don't seek medical attention right away.Contact Our Morphene Recall Lawyers Today »
