Accidently took two types of adhd med. need help!

I am currently switching from Adderall Ir (30 mg 2x day)to Methylin Er 20mg. (generic)Today was first day. I took the Methylin at 8am and accidently took my normal adderall 2nd dose at 2 pm (only split in 1/2 to..15mg since its a weekend) am I ok? My pharmacist will not call me baack, im sure they are busy as we are preparing for a bad storm (which is probably why I am side tracked today and messed up in the first plae) i feel fine so I would assume I am ok but.just want to check any feedback helpful for my.anxiety's sake ....thank you!

Re: Accidently took two types of adhd med. need help!

Hi there, I hope everything worked out ok yesterday. I've had similar situations happen and they are not fun. In the case it ever happens again, here are some suggestions. Obviously if you experience any troubling symptoms, go to the ER. If not, I would always recommend calling your doctor first. If you can't reach your local pharmacist, try calling one at a national chain, in a different location.
With my ADD, I'm a bit scattered so now I put all my meds in a "idiot proof" pill kit/split by AM/PM. I take some medications a few times a day so I have a smaller pill kit that I carry in my purse for those.

Hope you are ok!!
