Question: I took 60 mg of Cymbalta 18 hours ago, I also took 1 mg of Xanax 18 hours ago, I then took 55 mg of Oxycontin 6 hours ago, then 1.75 mg of Xanax one hour ago. I am having a severe panic about overdose and I'm really sleepy which scares me also, but I live hours away from medical attention, this panic attack is freaking me out so bad. I am just wondering if I'm going to overdose, and if I can take anything else to help this horrable panic attack. I have 1 mg Klonopins, 1 mg Xanax and 1 mg Ativan. I am wondering which one I can take. please answer quickly I am really freaking out and my last question took 3 days to answer, and I'm worried I wont be here that long.

Brief Answer:
please take 1 mg klonopin

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for using healthcaremagic.

I read your query and understand your concerns.

You can take klonopin 1 mg as you already took 2.75 mg of xanax which is quite higher considering all existing medications.

I understand that klonopin is not as powerful as xanax but one mg is enough to control panic attacks in most cases.

In addition please take deep breaths and plenty of fluids.

As stated in past I think you need proper treatment for these panic attacks as they are too frequent to handle on outpatient basis.

To avoid delay in getting your query answered put direct query to me with mention of my name.
I will be there to answeryou as soon as possible.

I hope this helps you.
If you have more questions feel free to write back to me.
Thanks and regards.
