Yes: An overdose occurs when an excessive dose of a medication is taken. Don't know what dose was prescribed to that person or if the medications were actually prescribed to that person. Any individual who is taking opioids other than how prescribed and is taking excessive amounts needs medical evaluation. If the person you are referring to is you - don't misuse medication or over-dose. Get help.
