First, let me tell you a bit about myself. I'm a 15 year old female, around 5'6' and weighing about 120 lbs. I started smoking marijuana only about 4 to 5 months prior to this experience, but quickly became an almost daily marijuana smoker. I stuck to just weed, and was not and still am not open to other drugs, especially those not derived directly from a plant. BUT my best friend's brother, happened to have some adderall one day. Knowing that all 4 of my cousins take it daily for ADD/ADHD I figured it couldn't be too harmful.

He said he usually took about 4 (but he is 19 and probably around 160lbs) and I didn't think to ask the dosage of the pills because I'm not accustomed to pills. My best friend, I'll call her H, and I took 2 of what we later found out were 70mg each (140mg total).

Very very quickly I started feeling extremely happy. We were getting ready to go to a play that a few of our friends were in, and while I was doing my makeup I glanced out the window and saw a friend walking by. I immediately RAN outside and hugged him, which I never have before. H followed me outside and we walked around with our other friend for a bit. Then I realized I had forgotten to put on my mascara, and kept telling both of them I need to go do so. After probably 15 minutes he had to go, so we returned inside and finished getting ready.

My mom called and said she would be picking us up to take us, this made me a bit nervous but I pushed those thoughts aside. In the car, we absolutely could not shut up. My mom started getting annoyed but I told her we had mountain dew earlier (she always thinks caffeine affects me, when it does not whatsoever). We arrived and were hanging out with friends at a sort of outdoor shopping thing. We texted a friend and purchased a dime of weed. Then we left those friends and located some others.

I HAD to tell one of my friends, I'll call him C, that I had taken some adderall. But I couldn't tell most of my other friends because they strongly disagree with any kind of drugs and I feared they would tell someone. I swear I saw everyone I had ever met in my life that day, and had endless conversations with all of them. This was very strange for me because I'm more of a quiet person. I noticed I kept getting something like goose bumps on my head and then my whole body. This caused me to CONSTANTLY play with my hair because the chills kind of tickled, which made it feel like my hair was messed up. I was also chewing chewing chewing on absolutely nothing, and my jaw got pretty sore after a while but I could not stop.

H and I saw another friend so we walked with him over to a dock area on a river, and he told us he was tripping on shrooms. People on adderall and people on shrooms are not a good combination! He said we were really freaking him out. All the while I was vigorously texting practically everyone in my phone, and writing very very lengthy responses to every text. I kept apologizing to everyone I was texting because I felt like I was being annoying, but they all said it was fine. I also couldn't help but compliment everyone on how lovely and cute and nice and beautiful they looked. My stomach was kind of upset, and I figured I should eat something to settle it but I just couldn't.

After a while, it was time to go to the play. H and I couldn't keep quiet during the play, discussing how nice the set was and how good the play was. We also discussed all the underlying meanings of the play. I was a very very very nice experience, UNTIL I had to go home alone. My mom and brother were in bed. I needed to do something so I hopped on the computer and talked to just about everyone on my buddy list and friends list on myspace. My computer automatically shuts off at 12, so when it did I just continued texting a million people. Then finally convinced one to call me because I had to talk so I wouldn't chew. I probably talked to about 5 people on the phone that night, for what I thought was a short time but when I looked later was about an hour each. My heart was racing, and it was really scaring me.

I did not sleep, I couldn't even keep my eyes closed. I got up around 9am and did not eat. My mom kept trying to make me clean up my room but I felt like absolute shit. It was so so so terrible. H was feeling the same. I could barely stand up with out feeling sick to my stomach. By around 10pm, I still hadn't eaten and was so tired that I felt like I was dreaming. I went to bed around 11pm and finally fell asleep at about 12am. I remember the next day at school, I swear my heart was still beating unusually fast and I felt extremely shitty. But, I doubted I was still experiencing effects from the adderall.

Overall, I obviously took WAY TOO MUCH, especially for my size and first time. And the after effects we extremely bad. I would like to try it again in a much smaller dose, just to see what happens.
