Very dangerous: The cause of your symptoms is the 15 pills you took yesterday. That is a large quantity of a class of drug (benzodiazepine ) that can kill you in large doses. This is especially dangerous if mixed with alcohol. What I wonder is why you,took so many. That would be urgent to discuss with your doctor or,if you go,to urgent care or the ER?
