Patient :I accidentally took my son's Focalin XR 40 mg capsule when I tool my own medications this morning. That was about 16 hours ago! Of course I did not feel well most of the day but I still feel not right. I know it is a stimulant and it a fairly high dose. Can you tell me how much longer I will feel so wide awake and is there anything I can do ?
Symptoms: My heart was racing for about six hours. It is no longer racing but I feel way too jumpy. I have a dull headache.
