Accidental overdose: By "solpdeine" did you mean zolpidem ? In Any case it depends on the milligrams oxycodone oral usually is 5-10 mg per 5 mililiter and depends how tolerant you are to the medication ( in other words how long you been taking it) . If indeed it was Zolpidem ( Ambien ) that was too much however most likely you will be overly sleepy for a few hours , but if breathing is difficult further attention
