Brief Answer: Hi and welcome to XXXXXXX Detailed Answer: Thanks for the query. You should have taken smaller dose if you were not sure about efficiency. Now, simply some time need to pass till effects subside(2-4 hours) but natural "antidotes" which may help are coffee, ciggaretes smoking, and taking plenty of fluids and high sugar products. Also,try to find some psyhological stress which will make you awake.Medical antidote is flumazenil but it is not indicated in this case of course,it is used for overdose. Wish you good health. Feel free to ask. Regards
