Eating six tablets of escitalopram oxalate and clonazepam tablets is not fatal and she may be too tired and over sleep and this is a sign of her depression and suicidal tendency

Yes, there will be hormonal changes like irregular periods, weight gain and cramps as you said pain during menses etc hence don't get over dependent on OCP's as they are harmful, try other means of contraception.

Hello doctor! I have accidentally taken an overdose of salbutamol sulphate (90 ml= 38 mg), where as prescription for a patient is 4 mg a day only. It has happened on 28th december 2016 and it has been 5 days now but I still feel full body jerk and heat inside the body most of the time. However on 28th after an hour of taking the medicine my pulse rate was 135 per minute and BP WAS 145/90. But it got normal on the other day on 29th. But jerking is not going away. I feel very very sorry that I took this medicine without any prescription and without any need. I just had it without any motive. It just happened I can not even explain why I did such foolish and life threatening act. I was so stupid and I would never do that again in my life but right now I need you and I need you to let me live by helping me how to get rid of this problem. What should I do now? Thanks a lot and thank you very much. A help would be very appreciable and very enough to be noticed.

lybrate-user! Do not worry, your excess consumption of Salbutamol can give rise to increased heart rate, increased blood pressure and muscular jerks. All of them will reduce in due course of time. Have coconut water / thrice a day for 2 days and have a banana (if you are not allergic to it) thrice a day for 2 days. This will help. Don't worry, You will be alright and make sure that you don't commit the same mistake of over dose again.

You can rest easy. No need to worry. Problems can occur only if Vit D is taken in excess over several months. In your mothers case she has only taken two doses extra. Our body usually flushes out unwanted stuff on its own. However you can take following steps to detox. 1. Drink more water for next fortnight. 2. Take two lemons per day with water. 3. Take beetroot salad everyday 4. Take no milk or milk products for two weeks. Only tea can be taken. These are just precautionary measures. But nothing to worry about she will be fine.
