well, it is possible that better medical attention should have been provided. malpractice is based on the standard of care. and if you feel they were negligent in that standard of care during the first 3 visits and that contributed to your overdose then you should consult with a local attorney to evaluate a possible lawsuit.
i am sorry you are not feeling well. you might also consider a visit to a mental health therapist who can also determine if you should have been kept in the hospital longer. of course, a visit with a local attorney could get you a referral to a mental health professional for an evaluation to see if you would have merit for a lawsuit.
hope you feel better in 2010
