Dear XXXXXXX

I am a medical specialist and with an additional degree in Cardiology.
What if you are have managed to stay alive and left to live like semi vegetable state wherein you will be able to listen and perceive everything and dependent on others? Best course for you to a psychologist in confidence and regain your self confidence to able to face your parents and her parents. Convince them with your capacity to love and ability to take care of their daughter. You are not the first person to fall in this trap and will not be the last. Use your intelligence, capability and diligence with which you have achieved this stature in life by thinking the rational way. Well, Trika (ALPRAZOLAM) is a prescription drug procuring it without doctor's prescription is against law of the land. There is no guarantee that the physiological dose which will induce sleep will not do no more harm. Do you still want to take the risk? Ask me a follow up question I promise I will give the answer if tell me that you have given a thought to all the consequences and still want to take the risk. You can ask your doctor you may get the answer. Unfortunately, the chemist(s) who dispensed the drug will be in Jail.

Persuade the chemist to give you the drug safety instructions usually written in small print contained in the packet from which the drug is dispensed. In that small slip all the information you want is written. Please write clearly what and how much you have taken so that you can be saved.

With Best Wishes

Dear Sir,

There is no drug which is 100% safe when overdose is taken. Let us hypothetically, take the example of Alparazolam (trade name Trika ), therapeutic dose is 0.5 to 1 mg daily as anxiolytic and sedative. Toxic dose is 4 mg that is 8 tablets. Six tablets induce sleep in 90% of people who can be woken with difficulty, in 5% the same effect can be achieved by 2 tablets. Similarly 16 tablets will push 80% in XXXXXXX sleep where gastric lavage done within half an hour can make them awake in all. In 20% same effect can be achieved with 10 tablets of 0.5 mg each. What more you want me to say?

Best Wishes.
