You could always ring NHS direct and ask them?

If you want to make yourself sick, salt water is a very good emetic.

essbee - you need to contact NHS direct. Is it once a day btw - maximum safe daily dose is 60mg i understand -

They wouldn't think you were topping yourself with one. Ask them , put your mind at rest. Why are you on them anyway if they made you black out, Surely the doctor should have changed your prescription.

Google cipralex overdose - I just did and found the manufacturer's prescribing information that seems to suggest that a dangerous overdose is one in excess of 600mg. SSRIs are known for being safe in overdose, unlike tricyclics.

You can call NHS Direct anonymously, I think. They give you the option at the start of the call iirc.

fairyfly Fri 04-Feb-05 00:07:49

yes but its dangerous, tell your doctor and change them, it wont be on your record, everyones done it at soem point

MamaMaiasaura Fri 04-Feb-05 00:11:33

hope you feel better soon. Definitely go back to your gp and tell him what happened and what effect they have on you - there must be something else that is better for you.

I went to bed last night just after posting. Glad you are OK now.
