Dr. Stuart Wasser answered:

If you get drug overdose, how do you feel?

Likely nothing

Drug_overdose
The first sign of overdose may be death- no other warning. This is true if we are talking about opioids, sedatives and perhaps alcohol. If we are talking about cocaine or other stimulants- it may be anxiety, palpitations, seizures, tremors and than perhaps death. However, these symptoms can be seen in sensitive individuals even with very low exposures

Please help! What happens when someone has a drug overdose?

That depends on

Toxic_ingestion
how serious it is and what drugs or medications were taken. Overdoses are often treated initially in an Emergency Room. The person is monitored and often they have intravenous fluids. If they stopped breathing - a tube can be inserted to assist with breathing. Sometimes they are given charcoal to absorb the drugs and sometimes their stomach is "pumped". They may need to be given medications.

Please explain what happens for a drug overdose and slit wrists?

Hopefully the

Toxic_ingestion
person involved will receive emergency care. They will be monitored & stablized. When possible, blood levels of the drugs overdosed on will be measured. If the person can't breath - a breathing tube may be used. They may have intravenous fluids. Sometimes the stomach is pumped and charcoal may be given. Depending on depth of wrist laceration depth- they may need to be sutured or even surgery.

Dr. Sue Ferranti answered:

What is the best treatment for drug overdose?

Depends...

Overdose
It depends on what agent has been overdosed. Some patients will require observation but others will require ICU level care, perhaps even life support!! Some overdosages are more dangerous than others do all overdoses need to be evaluated by a doctor to determine the care that is necessary.

Dr. Steven Simon answered:

Docs, usually how long is rehab for a drug overdose?

Drug rehab time

Overdose
The question is too broad for a simple answer. How long has the abuser been abusing, why does he/she want to stop, what substances were used, and now often were they used. These are some of the ?s that can predict in or out patient time, but the real,answer is: for the rest of your life !
