Hello,

I'm Dr Chaithanya attending you

The normal side effects of cocaine are increased body temperature, increased blood pressure and increased heart rate.

Dangerous symptoms of over dose may be developing heart attack, respiratory failure, stroke or seizures.

There is no specific antidote for cocaine overdose. You are treated symptomatically. Benzodiazepines are used when you have high heart rate, hypertension or seizures.

IV saline is given, and icing done if temperature is very high.

Please feel free to ask if any further questions. If done for now, please leave a positive rating

[Request to click on the 5th star] above the chat box so I can get credit for helping you today.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
