i think i overdosed- nother medical question

hey, i broke my finger last saturday, and i got some medication for it. its called Lortab. it says to take two evey six hours. well i just took 2 (i took 1.5 this morning) and its been 7 hours.

but know i am dizzy, and its hard to walk, and i am paranoid. is it just the effet of the pill, or do i need medical help?

What are you doing posting this here for, tell your Mom or dad and go to the hospital. Drug interactions can be impossible to predict, don't take a chance...get checked out you may be allergic.

You just took two now or did you take 1.5 and then took another two?You are probably just getting a good buzz right now.I would not eat those things like candy.Pain killers are easy to become addicted to.I used to have a prob when I was a teen.I got a baseball sized knot in my lower back this summer installing a trans in an International.Doc gave me some Percacets and I made him give me something else.Just did not want to take no chances.I ate Tylenols and muscle relaxers for three weeks until I could work again.Be careful with those pills bud.

Listen to him 40,I believe he is in the health care field,and I am not and most people here are not either.Good call 4 jaw

You will be fine, just enjoy it and don't do it again.

RCastle, you can tell you used to be addicted, "I ATE tylenols..." Lol. Never heard anything that either doesn't, or didn't say it like that.

Rcastle, he's only 15.

They give pain killers for broken fingers? I can't see what can change that much going up .5 of a dose. Tell your parents, call the doctor, see if this is normal.

You shouldn't be paranoid or having trouble walking

Exactly.Read deeper and youll see I agree he needs to get checked out.As for the age,man I was 15 when I was on the dumb stuff.You do not want to get addicted to that crap.Which is why I had the doc take me off heavy meds for my back and I just took Tylenol.Pain killers are one of the easiest forms of drugs to get addicted to.


You shouldn't be paranoid or having trouble walking.


Oh yeah you should.Lortabs are heavy duty pain killers.They are not for mild pain.Heavy pain killers will cause weakness,paronoia,sweats.Been there,aint going back.

Hey Sweetie,

Do they have those walk-in medical clinics down there? Give one a call or drop by and ask them. Or call the hospital and inquire about possible side-effects and reactions if you aren't able reach your own doctor. Chances are you are just fine (Have you eaten enough today? That could account for some unusual reactions to the meds if you don't have enough in your stomach) but with your parents not home...don't take some silly chance with your health. Now get off the computer and go get yourself taken care of!

Kristen
