In the event of an overdose or if combined with another sedative, many of these drugs can cause unconsciousness and even death.Sedative overdose can be fatal, especially if you also take other drugs or alcohol. Most people recover from sedative overdose if treatment is begun early. you may need an immediate medical consultation for early diagnosis. Thanks.
