This is not something for you to manage, in fact.

Why did she take these?

anger and anxiety
Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 7 months ago

OK

So you don't know how many she took.

In addition, this was a dangerous action related to meds and she needs an evaluation in that respect as well.

Can you get her to an ER? They can assess her vitals, if she needs the stomach emptied, etc.?

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.
