Brief Answer:
Nothing other than monitoring is needed

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. There is not much to be done in such an overdose. He would sleep for long. His vital signs (pulse, BP etc.) need close monitoring during this period, and his hydration would possibly be taken care of through IV fluids. Please do not grow apprehensive. Once the sleepiness subsides he should be back to normal. No other suggestions at the moment.

Let me know if I could help further.
