i have left a question today but this is a follor up one, ive taken 6 more diazpam and 8 beta blockers, can i srtay at home or do i need to see the doctor
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
im very depressed i dont want to die, but i cant stand my depression and it helps me to sleep

I'll strongly advise you to see a Dr tonight as you've overdosed on your tablets and diazepam especially can affect your breathing function, while the beta blockers will really slow down your heart.

Is there anyone home with you that can take you to hospital as I'll advise you not to drive.

im afraid to go to the hospital as then it will be on my medical file, and the people look down on you coz ive overdosed, i dont know what to tell them, im in a mess really, my depression is bad, bur i wouldnt kill mysefl as i have a daughter and i got elderly parents that need help too.... if it dont go to the hospital will things get worse,

Your hospital file is confidential and noone can have access to it without your consent as per data protection laws.

You need to be in hospital to get checked out as your heart can be affected by what you took

You'll also need help for your depression, maybe you'll need to see a psychiatrist

my depression comes and goes, in your opinion then should i go to the hospital, i dont know what to do, i just noticed my breathing is out of breath and stomach pains

Yes you should go, anybody would tell you that. Call an ambulance or NHS111.

okay thank you, ill get my mum to take me

No worries, they'll help you with the depression as well but the priorty for now is dealing with the effects of the overdose you took
