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:
No overdose, don't use more of these drugs.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HCM.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

In my opinion, you shouldn't take any of Klonopin, Ativan or Xanax by yourself, because you already took Xanax an hour ago and a dose of 1.75 mg is a high dose.

I don't think the amount that you already took of antidepressants, anxiolytics could cause overdose, but if you continue to take more of these drugs, overdose is possible.

So, don't panic because there is no overdose, and try to get medical evaluation and treatment about your panic attack.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Greetings.
