what does cocaine overdose feel like?

Up, then down

Cocaine
Cocaine overdose is excessive stimulation of heart rate, blood pressure, thinking patterns (hyperalertness, paranoia), sweating, flushing, fever, stroke, death. If one doesn't die from the OD, then whatever goes up must come down--crash. This is a severe, often long-lasting depression both emotionally and physically.

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

Can someone have died from a cocaine overdose?

Absolutely

Cardiac
Doing forensic pathology, we see it all the time. What's even more treacherous, you don't even need to take a lot to have it kill you -- the same amount you've taken many times just to get high may on the 101st time trigger a heart rhythm disturbance and leave you dead or a vegetable.

What happens when you die from a cocaine overdose?

Your heart stops

Not sure what you mean here, but a cocaine overdose, may cause the strain on the heart to be too much and cause an eventual stopping of the heart, resulting in death, at which point your brain stops to function as well. Cocaine use-Bad! Too much cocaine use-Very Bad. Don't do drugs. Get help if you are addicted, see your Dr. or call a crisis center. best wishes.

Seek medical help

If he has symptoms related to a cocaine overdose, this can be life threatening. Chest pain, headache, rapid heart beat, trouble breathing, palpitations, passing out, confusion, seizures, increased temperature, stroke, kidney failure, and more are all possible. Many of these are common. Cocaine can also be laced with something else. Call 911 so he can be treated enroute to the ED also.
