In brief: Depends on why

Prescription amphetamines are reasonably safe, and overdoses rarely cause problems - treated mostly with observation.
If the overdose was intentional, then a different set of problems exist - mental health treatment is paramount. If the amphetamine is a recreational drug (ecstasy, meth, bath salts) then another set of issues arise -namely drug rehabilitation.
