In brief: Dangerous

You ae doing dangerous things with the medication.
Snorting drugs results in very rapid absorption and very high levels quickly which may be very dangerous. Amphetamines are not meant to be taken this way. If amphetamine is absorbed to rapidly and dose is too high you are risking a stroke or heart attack.

In brief: Take to the hospital

Thank you for asking and taking care of your friend.
Please take them to the hospital. That is a hefty dose of each medication and snorting Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) makes it infuse faster into the bloodstream, like taking more than dose. Need to be safe and take them to the hospital and thank you again for supporting your friend in what can be a dangerous time.
