Taken 60 fluoxetines, 52 zopiclones. History of drug overdose. Should I call an ambulance?

My friend has just texted me saying she s going to take 60 Fluoxetine 20mg and 52 Zopiclone . She was in hospital for an overdose before Xmas but she was let out the same day although I m unsure what she took then. Should I call an ambulance (although I m not sure where she is at the moment but maybe the police can trace her mobile signal)? I m just a bit worried about what she s saying she s going to take.

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. Yes, you should call and ambulance. It seems like you are abusing and overusing your prescription medications and you might be dependent on them to a certain extant if you have been having increasing use of the medications. I also believe that you should let your psychiatrist know of you condition and alert a substance abuse counselor in the community to get you on the path to recovery.

I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
