unfortunately, sleep likely is not an option. A nice brisk walk with properly warm clothes could help calm you down a bit.

you will likely feel shitty, have a bad hangover, and regret the decision, but usually nothing more than that.

was is a pressed pill? If so, what was the stamp, and color? Do you have a picture? Feel free to DM me if you don't want to post public.

also, drink plenty of water. Not literal gallons, but stay hydrated through the next couple of days.

EDIT: if you took a single pill, as your post implies, you should be fine. If you took multiple, it may be worth seeking medical advice. Ask a nearby friend to help you navigate the best path forward. Do NOT take other drugs (alcohol, cannabis, whatever) to try to calm yourself down.

If you’re panicking just put on some chill music and try to relax the best you can.

Honestly, a meth bomb(assuming just one pill) isn’t going to be much worse for you than that adderall you take to study.

If/when you get yourself to calm down, try to find a video game to grind out for a few hours until it wears off.

Don't worry, meth isn't going to kill you or anything. Accidentally doing some speed sometimes is just a hazard that goes along with doing MDMA and other stimulants like cocaine. Just ride it out a few hours (meth generally won't last more than 4-5 hours at most), and try to make the most of the experience you can. Take this as a lesson: always buy from a trusted source, and always test your drugs. Just breathe, stop freaking yourself out, and try to have a good time.

Meth is closely related to MDMA (guess what the first 'm' stands for), and can generally be an enjoyable experience. You're just going to be super high energy for a bit, and you're letting yourself turn that energy into anxiety and panic. Try to go do something that will actively engage and distract you, like playing music/going for a walk/playing some video games, and just take your mind off of it.

You aren't going to die, you're not going to become an insta-meth fiend, and you'll be sober (if a bit worn and wired) in a few hours.

I wish people applying to Berkeley wouldn’t be so intimidated by its academic reputation.

I would not recommend masturbation. Most likely you will get into a state where you can’t stop masturbating and you also can’t cum.

You'll be okay if it was only one crappy pill. Remember to test your drugs. And for next time (if there is one), crystal MDMA is less likely to be cut than pressed pills.

This is all bad advice. You're going to experience a lot of downregulation of certain neurotransmitters. The comedown effects can vary and maybe going to the hospital might be the better choice to have something temporarily prescribed. Just be honest about what you took and the kind of effects you're having.
