In brief: Expect so

Overdose of adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) can trigger a cardiac arrhythmia.
I hope you are taking it under a doctor's supervision. Speak to your doctor. Do not try to regulate the dose on your own.

HIgh doses can certainly be fatal - agree that cardiovascular health is a significant factor

In brief: Unlikely

Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) (amphetamine) overdose can cause psychotic symptoms, chest pain, palpitations, increase heart rate and blood pressure, but it would be unlikely to be fatal.
