Sleeping Pill Overdose


Sleeping pills are given as medications for those who cannot sleep right away. If the serum level of these medications exceeds the therapeutic level, it may lead to sleeping pill overdose [1, 2].


What are Sleeping Pills?

Most of the sleeping pills available in the market belongs to the class of benzodiazepines. These drugs affect the level of neurotransmitters in the brain that may affect the regulation of sleep. The misinformation of these pills is that they do not really induce sleep but affect the activity of the brain.  They are prescribed to patients suffering from anxiety and sleep disorders.

Sleeping pill overdose


Sleeping pills should only be used as needed and not to be taken regularly over a long period because of its habit-forming properties. Some of the most common sleeping pills prescribed to patients are zolpidem (Ambien), trazodone (Desyrel) and alprazolam (Xanax).

Side effects that may be experienced with the intake of sleeping pills are diarrhea, constipation, dizziness, dryness of the mouth or throat, changes in appetite, burning or tingling sensation in the hands and feet and feeling of drowsiness in the daytime [1, 2, 3].


Issues and Concerns

One of the issues regarding the use of sleeping pills is its use in committing suicide. These medications are being used to end one’s life because of its ability to cause death without causing any pain. Some of the celebrities who died from overdosing on sleeping pills are Marilyn Monroe, Jimi Hendrix, Bryan Epstein, Mike Von Elrich and Heath Ledger [1, 2, 3].

How much is Sleeping Pills Overdose?

The toxic level of sleeping pills depend on the medications. Some medications are more potent than the others in such that there is a narrow margin between their therapeutic range and their toxic level. For zolpidem, the maximum daily dose is 10mg and the toxic dose begins at 70mg.

The recommended dose for Trazodone is at 150mg while the toxic dose is at 600 mg. Xanax has a very high toxic dose in which about 1333 tablets of 1.5mg Xanax tablets needs to be ingested to reach the 2000mg toxic level. Factors that may affect the toxicity are weight, age and the tolerance the individual has developed on the medication [4, 5].

What are Sleeping Pills Overdose symptoms?

When an individual overdose on sleeping pills, the symptoms that they may experience are as follows.

Central Nervous System effects

Symptoms that are caused by the depression of the central nervous system include slowing of mental processes and memory or attention disorders. They may have unusual dreams and experience parasomnia. In an episode of parasomnia, the person may sleepwalk and do things that they are not aware of. There may be a loss in consciousness or even death [2, 3].

Gastrointestinal System effects

GI symptoms that may be experienced include stomach pain, heartburns, constipation, diarrhea and changes in their appetite [2, 3].

Other effects

Other symptoms that they may experience include cessation of breathing, decreased heart rate and shortness of breath [2, 3].

What is Sleeping Pills Overdose Management?

Emergency Care

The first thing to do when a patient has overdosed on sleeping pills is to bring them to the hospital without any delay. The initial priority in the emergency department is the airway, breathing and circulation of the patient. Supplemental oxygen may be provided or an emergency endotracheal intubation may be performed depending on the condition of the patient. An intravenous access should be established to administer medications as needed [2, 3].


Decontamination

Once the patient is stable, decontamination may commence. A gastric lavage can be performed if the ingestion occurred less than an hour prior. Activated charcoal may be given to the patient to minimize the binding of the drug in the stomach but the airway must be protected during the administration to prevent aspiration. Elimination through urinary excretion should be promoted during the therapy [2, 3].

Administration of Flumazenil

Flumazenil is the antidote for benzodiazepine overdose because it competes with the receptor sites of benzodiazepine in the body. This treatment rapidly reverses the symptoms of drug overdose [2, 3].

Referral

Those who have attempted suicide using sleeping pills must be referred to a psychiatrist for an evaluation once they are asymptomatic. This may prevent another suicide attempt in the future [2, 3].

How to Prevent Sleeping Pill Overdose?

Taking more than 5 to 6 sleeping pills in any kind is greatly fatal. Alternative ways to naturally induce sleep may include drinking milk during night time before sleep, avoiding taking nap during the day, having a half bath before going to bed and making the room conducive for sleeping [1, 2, 3].

The use of sleeping pills can be dangerous and natural methods for inducing sleep must be tried first before resorting to sleeping pills, If you have more information about this, you can share what you know in the comment section below.

          Also, taking immovane ( Canadian). Zoplicone is generic name 7.5 mg.
          Do not take for extended time. This stuff was marketed as ” safe” in regards to its “addiction” cases. It was originally considered the safest one on the market. Not anymore. It’s hard to get on a regular basis from Doctors. They would like to see you, no ” fax” refills. Also, a lot of walkin clinics won’t even give it out. They consider it as being on the controlled substance list. However it is not. My doctor showed me on Canada’s website.
          Advice, start with a half a tablet as long as it works for you. It tastes awful when you break it. Like a metallic taste. So drink fast water, then small amount of milk will take taste away. This stuff works for nightshift workers etc.

    Don’t mess with the dosage with these. (Diphenhydramine, anyway.) It is not a fun way to go. You think that you will just fall asleep and die peacefully. In reality, you will actually be unable to move, breathe, see, or even swallow. You will break into a cold sweat. Your mouth will go completely dry and you wont be able to stop twitching. You may see moving shadows and lights that you cannot escape. Speaking from experience.

We might want to be dead, but most of us are afraid of pain. Obviously no one here can say what the right thing is to take because if they knew that, they would be dead.

            The right thing to take is serequel,about 16 and if nobody finds you it will do the trick. You dont have to take that many i did i was dead, but someone called 911 and here i am cant get sleeping pills prescribed no more. The hospital told me i was dead, theybought me back which really pissed me off.

        It’s probably one of the worse ways to go, if you want something fast jump or use a gun the pills sucked… I looked like death for 3 days after taking 31 pills, my intention was to die not to take the risks of the painful effects… I wouldn’t do it ever again unless it was for sure

      I know what you mean. I took 75, 50mg pills. I was up, just not conscious. I remember shouting and it sounded like I was in a tunnel far away from myself. I couldn’t move at all. The hospital treats you like a child about it. I don’t know how many times I told them it was a mistake I’ll never make again. The effect was worse than I imagine dying to be. Nothing was worth that.

      I agree I took 10 sleeping pills , they made me drink that black stuff ( forgot what it’s called right now) to absorb the pills and threatened to pump my stomach if I didn’t drink it or held it down. There was no sympathy what so ever though. The nurse was rude and seemed annoyed with me. They couldn’t wait to get me out of there. No support or counseling was offered. I just seemed to be an annoyance. Wish bf hadn’t called an ambulance.life sure didn’t get any better.

        No shit! My 30 yr old son took a whole bottle of sleeping pills when he wanted his emotionally painful life to stop.
        They gave him charcoal and he talked to the psychiatrist at the hospital, who said he’s not suicidal. And sent him home with instructions to follow up with his family Dr. What the fuck!!!!
        Used to be if you tried committing suicide they put you into the psych ward. How the hell is taking a bottle of pills not a suicide attempt?!!!

        No pain is greater than hellfire ,
        Life doesn’t end , it’s the beginning of the next life

        Ending life is punishable to continue to take life and feel the pain repeatedly , continuously .

        There was a purpose of life …?

        I don’t blame you …
        I feel I want to do the same …
        But knowing the consequence , I can’t make myself .

        Life is short
        We will not life forever
        Will have to leave this world anyway soon … But because there is more than just this life , ( don’t know if you know much about the truth of the here after or believe in it … But you would not be saved if you found the other end it was the truth

      I was in an abusive relationship, but nothing gives you the right to take your life or that of someone else. If you think about killing yourself, seek help (from someone you know or professional help) – if you think about killing someone else because he mistreats you so badly go to the freaking police. You can write stuff online, so you can contact the officials as well. Don’t be the monster he is!

      And to the subject… I have overdosed on sleeping pills. It is not nice, I have hurt no one but my mother who was holding me in her arms, crying – and I was aware of it all. I couldn’t move by myself but I heard and saw everything and it was pure luck that I was found half an hour after taking them and rushed to the hospital. The police will search your room and take whatever they can find that might be a reason for your suicide attempt, your family will be devastated and you will be required to receive psychological treatment unless doctors think you won’t do it again.

      I took an overdose of sleeping pills ..it couldn’t consign me to death but pushed me to unconsciousness. I fainted and remained that way for a day or two..on regaining consciousness i again took a few pills to remain that way if death wasn’t destined for me at that moment. I thought it will cause me a big harm if not death. Was wanting something fatal to happen with me but nothing big happened. Though a went through a sluggish or almost blocked intestinal movement for many days. Nausea, loss of appetite drowsiness all happened but not what i was desperately wishful for. Now i have started forgetting things. If i don’t do it the moment I am thinking about it i forget to do it for a longer time which earlier was not a trait of mine…what i forget today are of small importance …one big event happened too…and it caused me emotional hurt. Is it likely to be the start of forgetfulness. Is it possible that i can become a forever victim of it.
      I just want ti know if anyone else is also experienced the same problem ..or only l am facing it.

    I did this. I don’t know why. I took three different brands, full bottles of 60-100 tablets each roughly 260 pills… I felt normal for 45 mins. I s sitting in a car and felt nausea I dropped my phone and realized I couldn’t move my arm out my legs I was stuck inside my body, i felt like my blog was replaced with sand bags…my breathing became harder, slower… I almost panicked but then I told myself to sleep. I didn’t open my eyes until two days later apparently my heart rate dropped I needed dialysis and flushed my system… I would of been dead if I didn’t get to the hospital as soon as I blacked out. This isn’t funny or a game, depression suck… So do the ups and downs being happy and disappointed.

    I started taking sleeping tablets from the age of 18. Realised that you could get a kick (good feeling) from it especially when taking it with alcohol. I got addicted. I’ve been to rehab. Still trying to get rid of the addiction and I’m now 25. It took over my life. I started taking it as a way to escape the pain in my life. While it actually just brought me more pain. It’s not worth it. If you can relate to this… please stay strong it is possible to quit.

      I’m going through this right now. I never took them to kill yself, like you said, it just gives you this euphoria feeling. I started reading all the comments of how they kill you and I threw my stash into the pond outside. Fighting the addiction is the hard part 🙁

      I feel sorry for all these people. All I’m reading is everyone wants to die. I don’t understand it? From all your comments, yes it sounds very painful and scarey taking all those pills. I wish government would do away with sleeping pills.
      Destroy them all!

    Tried Ambien and 100 miligrams isn’t enough. Even with xanax thrown in. I think next time I’m saving up so I’ve got at least 600 miligrams and more xanax and can top it off with alcohol. But like this article said, the really good (or bad) ones for actually killing oneself have all been taken off the market. So I don’t know what else to try without failing, because I don’t want to have to deal with all the crap of failing. Wish there was just somewhere on the web where we could find actual simple directions that would work.

    My wife tried yesterday. 60 pills and alcohol sent her to the emergency room. Problem is the current formulation is not as potent as in the past and she could not keep all of them down. Today she says she is glad it did not kill her. She will get a thorough psych evaluation now. Hopefully we can figure out what is going on in her head. If you are contemplating this why not ask the people who love you to help get yourself to a psych hospital? It is a way better option than puking all over yourself for nothing.

      Ask for help? Hahahaa they don’t care, I’ve tried overdosing 3 times in one day and all my mom did was take me to a free child care place (adding that my mom is not struggling with money too bad to the point where she can’t pay for mental help), the lady I talked to sucked so much she couldn’t even help me a little and they were so cheap I didn’t even need to go back. All I did was talk about “my feelings” they gave me a suicide hotline paper and sent me on my way back. My mother thinks it’s just a phase and it really sucks just because of my age I’m treated differently (adding I’m not a fucking 5 year old, I’m mature enough to know what I’m feeling is not okay) (15 years old btw) It’s just so funny because one day I’m not going to fail and then she’ll know then that it was never a phase. She doesn’t know I have daily suicidal thoughts over and over, my brain is so fucked up that I don’t even know what’s wrong with me. My mom doesn’t know a lot about my past, there’s some stuff I’ve kept from her so she has no right to say she’s knows how I feel when she doesn’t, no one will ever truly know me or my thoughts other than god.

      That’s the only thing that has stopped me from suicide is the spending eternity in hell because God does not forgive you if you commit suicide because you should rely on God to get you through everything. I am having a hard time trying to get over my wife moving out on mother’s day 2112. I could not asked have asked for a sweeter,kind & loving wife. But after 35 years together 30 yrs of marriage she couldn’t take my mental health problems with my severe depression,trying to control her verbal abuse & until I quit drinking on 3/7/08 I went to jail twice for beating her up blacking out so bad I was drunk that drunk. Even after I quit drinking I was still verbally abusive & controlling. After 3 1/2 yrs of letting her do her own thing I have been trying to win her back recently & she said no way in hell she is going to give me another chance & I can’t say that I blame her even though I am not the same bastard I was before. In the last week I have drove over 100mph on two occasions trying to get the courage to hit a tree. I don’t know how I am going to get over losing the love of my life that I had since 1975.

    I am planning to overdose on zolfresh 10 mg pills. I have started to collect them using my mother’s prescription. Only question is, should I take a lot of them, like 30, on an empty stomach so that I won’t vomit it out or on a full belly so it becomes more ugly….

    I took an overdose of sleeping pills..it came out ..still i was unconscious for a day or two..on gaining a li’l consciousness i again took few to case me a big harm if death wasn’t destined at that moment …nothing big happened as i wanted it to be…post that i faced sluggish or almost blocked intestinal movement for many days, say for a month. Nausea,loss of appetite drowsiness all happened. Post that i started forgetting few things ..not specific but anything.. if i don’t do it the moment i have it in my mind i forget about it for quite a long time..which earlier wasn’t a trait of mine. Things i forget today are of small importance..harms me too..is it likely to be the start of forgetfulness..is it that i may forget big things also in near future..i just wanted if anyone else experienced. the same or only i m facing it.

    I took an overdose of sleeping pills ..it couldn’t consign me to death but pushed me to unconsciousness. I fainted and remained that way for a day or two..on regaining consciousness i again took a few pills to remain that way if death wasn’t destined for me at that moment. I thought it will cause me a big harm if not death. Was wanting something fatal to happen with me but nothing big happened. Though a went through a sluggish or almost blocked intestinal movement for many days. Nausea, loss of appetite drowsiness all happened but not what i was desperately wishful for. Now i have started forgetting things. If i don’t do it the moment I am thinking about it i forget to do it for a longer time which earlier was not a trait of mine…what i forget today are of small importance …one big event happened too…and it caused me emotional hurt. Is it likely to be the start of forgetfulness. Is it possible that i can become a forever victim of it.
    I just want ti know if anyone else is also experienced the same problem ..or only l am facing it.

    In the last week I tried to get the courage up to drive my car into a tree over 100mph because I don’t think I want to try pills to do it. I asked my wife of 32 yrs (we were together since 1975) to move out on mother’s day 2013 & lately have regretted it. I have been trying to win her back the last week & she said it is never going to happen. I am so mad at myself because I had a beautiful woman inside & out & can’t imagine growing old without her. I will never find anyone else because I live on less than 16 grand a year,have terriable health & don’t have much to offer a nice woman. So I wish God would take me or someone would kill me because I can’t do it to myself.

    I tried to overdose on melatonin sleeping pills last night . I took around 60 . Of course I survived but now I’m having symptoms that make me feel like I have the stomach flu . I have nausea and haven the thrown up and have a weak feeling similar to when your sugar is low and I’m a little shaky . I can’t go to the hospital for treatment because I’m scared to tell my mom . Would drinking Gatorade or anything help with the side effects ?

    Seems like there is no easy path to suicide except for carbon monoxide poisoning in your garage with your car running. Tried Robin Williams method yesterday but no success.Tired of my braking telling me to “kill myself” all day long. Cannot take anymore.

    I’m reading all these comments, I clicked on this link because I’m depressed asf and I’ve recently ruined my relationship/ friendship of 8 years. I’m 22 and today I sat on my bed with a bottle of vodka and about 30 zoppoclones (sleeping pills in New Zealand).. contemplating. It’s sounds so ugly though. Idk rather drive off a cliff tbh. But I guess truth is, we shouldn’t kill ourselves. We should just change our lives so that we don’t want to die. Someone said to me once, “if you don’t like where you are in your life, then move, your not a tree”. Meaning change is the key.. but hey idont know, I feel like I’ll be back in this state of mind next week or whatever anyway.
    But thanks to all the bloggers who posted on this from experience with this overdose, you saved my life today, or at least saved me from an ugly experience.

    Overdosed on 20 pills yesterday night, and I had trouble falling asleep. My heart started pounding really fast and it was hard to move. It’s hard to remember, but I think I hallucinated that my boyfriend/friends spoke to me and I couldn’t even utter a word, just make small noises. I thought I heard my mom yelling for me, and I said something that wouldn’t have even been heard, but it felt like it was at her voice level. Good thing me and my family don’t care to see each other everday. My anxiety has been very bad lately though. Just my phone vibrating makes my heart jump/race. I wish I could die man. Even though the other times I tried overdosing failed, I still tried again. fml

    I live with these thoughts daily and even thought about setting fire to myself.
    I guess if the urge is strong enough then it will happen and thats the bottom line.
    Most people are crying out for help and we all need that help at times you are not weak you are struggling with some stuff be it greif or dispair and these yhings will go one day so ask for help or just try to talk to someone these pills long term will more probably kill you painfully due to your organs being affected.
    Please try to be kind to yourself and others and get help you can go to the hospotal as an emergency and someone will see you
    Remember the person who finds you will have to live with that forever and it dont matter if its family freinds or strangers
