What are the repercussions of overdose of Prazosin?

My brother took a whole bottle of prazocin 2 mg and i took him to ER but because I m not the parent no one would tell me anything and they waited for our parents to come from work and they won t tell me anything. What could have happened if I hadn t taken him to ER

Prazosin overdose may cause extreme dip in blood pressures. As the blood pressure dips below certain threshold, your brother can also go into coma and it would have been a highly dangerous situation. There can be other serious manifestations too.
I appreciate your gesture of bringing him to ER as a whole bottle of 2mg Prazosin is a very high dose. I hope your brother is out of danger by now. Thanks for writing into healthcare magic. All the best for your brother.
