Please let your : Prescribing know right away. This is a sunday night - so if you have suicidal thoughts that you believe you may act on then would encourage you to have a friend or family member drive you to the nearest er. Or you can call 911.You can use national suicide hotlines 24/7 at 1-800-suicide (1-800-784-2433) or 1-800-273 – talk (1-800-273-8255). Take care.
