In brief: Hypnotic medications

It is difficult to determine what is considered to be "overdose" as all of us metabolize medications at different rates.
Overdose in the truest meaning would be ingesting an amount of a medication that leads to significant acute adverse effects necessitating a hospital admission. Taking more than the recommended highest dosage would be an indication of substance dependency/tolerance. Speak to md.
