Sedation: Piriton is an antihistamine that can be sedating -- making you sleepy. Combined with amitriptylene, even more so. If you're going to use them, I'd suggest spreading them out and not taking all at once -- unless you're planning to go to sleep. ...Read more

What to do if I have drunk a whole bottle of piriton?

Go to emergency room: As opposed to sitting and typing a perfect stranger online. Antihistamines in very high doses can have serious adverse consequences, including some life-threatening ones. Why did you do this? If it was with the plan of hurting/killing yourself, you need urgent and immediate psychiatric help. If it was to get "high, " you need help with chemical dependency.

A little Drowsy: Piriton is a brand name for chlorpheniramine at 2 mg:5 mL I calculated that you took 14 mg. This is a high dose but the most severe side effect would be drowsiness.
