Not life threatening: however, can cause severe sleepiness and sedation. I would advise not taking any more medication for at least 12 hrs.

Probably not an issue - but you may sleepiness and drowsiness. However your total daily dose is 300mg and by the cdc guideline it equates to 120MME - this is 30MME above what is recommended. Please have a discussion with your prescriber

Likely not but it is a narcotic and can cause addiction. Be so careful. If you are using this medication on a regular basis, you may want to have Narcan on hand for poor breathing. You can get this from your pharmacy. Use a dependable method to insure you are not taking an extra or double dose of your medication. Remember this is not for longterm use.
