You have taken an overdose of diphenhydramine and Ibuprofen. Both these overdoses a mild to moderate and there should not be any danger to your life with this job. But this is something which should not be treated at home. You need to go to ER to have yourself examined and treated. I understand that this may not be what you wanted or expected to hear but I have to tell you the complete truth and be ethical. I hope you would not hold that against me when rating the answer.
