ALWAYS seek urgent medical attention without delay 

  • One tablet over the prescribed amount is too many

  • What may not harm one person may be fatal or cause serious damage to another. Everyone is different. The damage an overdose will cause can depend on many factors

  • You may not seem to be affected by the number of tablets you have taken on one occasion but that does not mean you won’t be affected if you do it again with the same number. You may appear fine but it is always possible that you have caused damage that is unseen, and may still need to be checked out.

  • If you find an unconscious person who has taken an overdose they should be put into the recovery position – on their side with their head tilted back and their chin lifted.

  • Call an ambulance, keep monitoring them - checking that their airway is open and they are breathing
