Too much.: Overdose simply means you took too much; this can be uncomfortable or dangerous (even life-threatening). It's important that you always take any medications under the supervision of a trained health professional. Incidentally Novocain is (as far as I'm aware) no longer used in dentistry; because of allergy issues this application was discontinued many years ago.
