Transient Ischemic Attack


Q: About 4 nights ago I did something stupid and ingested about 60mg of adderall. The adderall caused what I am 99% sure to be a Transient Ischemic Attack, and from what I've heard they are a warning sign for a major stroke. But, I am young and relatively healthy and should not be at risk for a stroke. Nothing like that ever happened before. I am wondering if this attack was caused by the vasoconstricting and blood pressure raising properties of amphetamine-class drugs, and if I should be concerned that I am actually at risk for a real stroke. I wish I could go back and never have done that stupid, stupid thing.
