In brief: Go to ER

Doctors in the emergency department may use activated charcoal or stomach pumping to retrieve the drug from the stomach.
For severe respiratory depression, intubation and artificial ventilation could be necessary. Drugs such as Flumazenil (clonazepam) may be prescribed as an antidote, depending on a number of medical factors.

Supportive care. The American College of Medical Toxicologists and American Association of Poison Control centers recommend supportive care. Stomach pumping is almost never indicated anymore and charcoal has been found to be effective in only a few ingestion. Flumazanil should,be generally avoided due to risk of refractory seizures. Airway support and ventilation until Symptoms resolves.
