- Have you heard of people taking large amounts of imodium to get "opiod" feeling and death due to amount taken? (3 answers)
My 21 year old son passed away unexpectedly due to large amount of Imodium taken. As I have found out he had been taking this OTC medication to get the same feeling as pain medication(opioids). This medication showed up in his toxicology report. Can anyone help me understand how this could cause death? Should this medication be OTC? Is this something his generation is doing? His death was accidental. Has there been other young adults that have taken this medication to get a buzz? He did have Restoril also in report--which was within normal value. He did not do any other drugs. Please help me understand this dangerous drug that is available OTC for our young children/adults.
- Overdosed on librium alcohol and zanaflex (1 answer)
I recently od'd on a large handful of Librium, about 8 zanaflex and a pint of liquor. I had gotten out of bed and fell. My mother found me trying to take off my clothes and I was urinating on myself. I do not remember any of this, but she said she asked what I had taken and I pointed to two pill bottles. I had left a "goodbye" letter that I do not remember writing. She called 911 and proceeded to try to get some panties on me and a tshirt. She said the paramedics were shaking their head, they couldn't get a blood pressure. Anyway I was put on a sheet and then on a gurney and rushed to the er. The first thing I remember was drinking charcoal, and having black diarrhea in a bed pain w/my mom helping me. (daddy left the room thank god). But I guess my question is, what will be the reprecusions (sp?) of this? I have never been suicidal before. I have never blacked out before. But I seemed to have done both that night. I have been released and can't sleep, I have no income, live with my mom and very depressed. I have no drugs or liquor in the house. Can anyone relate to what happened to me 3 nights ago? Was it some sort of stressful unconscious breakdown? Confused and embarrassed..swd
- Finished alcohol detox yesterday. still feeling clumsy and slurred speech
Did a 5 day detox. Just left yesterday. About an hour and a half i took 1/2 milligram of ativan. Mome again for the 5 days. They gave me librium. My pulse and blood pressure were high. Two days into detox they gave me something for my blood pressure, which helped. Yesterday morning they gave me one last librium (250). Today my speech has improved but I'm still clumsy a d a little stumbly. Is this permanent? How long will it last?

- Librium 25mg and wellbutrin 300mg for >1 month
I've been taking librium twice daily, morning and night, for about 3 months now along with wellbutrin XL in the morning. I've basically had the mood of "I don't care" and a great boost in confidence.
- Oxymorphone & amphetamine toxicity (1 response)
My 38 year old husband died in October. Toxicology and autopsy results showed the cause of death to be 'Oxymorphone & Amphetamine Toxicity'. Levels were at the high end of what is conssidered a 'therapeutic dose level', especially since he had developed a tolerance. He was prescribed both Adderrall and Opana by the same doctor, and had been taking both successfully and as directed for some time. Autopsy indicated he was otherwise healthy.
I've lost my husband to this toxic combination. He went to bed; I awoke to life without my best friend. Please be aware of potentially fatal prescription combinations. Discuss these with your Dr. or pharmacist. Do the research, watch for side effects, voice your concerns - it could save a life.
