Thanks for posting your query.

An overdose of anxit is definitely XXXXXXX for you. It can cause central nervous system depression including suppression of respiratory center.

The exact number of tablets that will be lethal does show inter individual variation.

Taking even a single extra tablet than what is prescribed to, you might cause problems, the therapeutic window in this class of drugs is very narrow.

If you cannot fall asleep using therapeutic doses of anxit then it is better to consult your physician and ask him to prescribe you more efficacious alternatives.

Please visit your treating physician for choosing the most appropriate medicine for you.

I hope this answers your query effectively.
