How many sleeping pills?
How many sleeping pills would it take to end the life of an average sized female teenager? (Like 5'7 ish and 10 stone?) I've seen many different answers when researching but I wanted to know (roughly) what the right amount is. Thanks Asked by Wan Mcvey 1 year ago.

It depends on the sleeping pills in question. Most sleeping pills now are relatively hard to overdose on, you would be lucky to fatally OD on a month's supply. If they are the over the counter type you buy in a pharmacy, death by those is difficult (we're talking thousands of milligrammes here) and painful. The pills you can just buy from a pharmacy are antihistamines that also have a sedative action. In high doses they cause delirium as well as a dry mouth and eyes, they share similarities to Atropa Belladonna (deadly nightshade) when taken at toxic levels and cause dangerous heart arrhythmia. Overdose on them would be horrible to say the least, as well as incredibly unpredictable. Benzodiazepines are different in that they actually put you to sleep, though they have a very high therapeutic index, this means that you would have to take many times the active dose to achieve a fatal dose. Diazepam for instance is active at ten milligrams, you would probably need 200+ milligrams to achieve a fatal overdose, even then you are likely just to wake up in hospital, most benzo overdoses just result in the person sleeping for a few days to a week in hospital. Taking them with alcohol increases the lethality, though alcohol is conducive to vomiting, so a person wanting to overdose would just vomit the pills out. Some benzos are more dangerous than others, a prime example of this would be flunitrazepam (rohypnol) though it's rarely prescribed anymore due to it's reputation as a 'date rape drug'. The sleeping tablets that people used to overdose on would be chloral hydrate and barbiturates such as sodium seconal or tuinal. They are very rarely prescribed, they are usually only prescribed to people who have developed a dependency on them in their younger years and never tapered off. I have only ever stumbled upon them once in my life. If you are looking to kill yourself by overdose on sleeping pills your chances are low, very low. There are other sites that would cover methods much better than on here and as I am forbidden by the guidelines to help you, I urge you to ask elsewhere, if at all. You are only a teenager and things can seem at their worst, especially at your age, as someone who's been dealt quite a few shitty cards in life, I can relate to how you are feeling, though I urge you to at least wait until you're in your twenties before deciding to opt out.

What are the mechanisms when a person overdoses on sleeping pills like phenobarbital and alcohol?
by mechanism i mean what happens ot the body,the brain,how much time before the drugs take effect etc. Asked by Geri Prazeres 1 year ago.

Sort of an odd drug choice to write about for a university news paper. Since barbiturates are not commonly used except in hospitals for acute seizures, sedation, and anesthesia, for euthanasia (where legal), barbiturates may also be used in alcohol or benzodiazepine withdrawal, phenobarbital is occasionally used for a rapid benzodiazepine detox. Benzodiazepines can replaced most uses of barbiturates. In some cases oral barbiturates are prescribed, primarily phenobarbital for epilepsy but Butisol Sodium (butabarbital sodium) and Seconal (secobarbital) are still available. Alcohol, barbiturates, benzodiazepines (alprazolam, lorazepam, diazepam), "Z" drugs (zolpidem, zaleplon, zopiclone, eszopiclone), and several other drugs like chloral hydrate, meprobamate, carisoprodol are GABAnergic drugs meaning they act on gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). In your example of phenobarbital and alcohol the phenobarbital is more relevant. The pharmacological mechanism of action of barbiturates is due to interaction with GABAa receptors, where they bind at distinct binding sites and enhance GABA-mediated chloride currents, found in the central nervous system where they allow an influx of chloride into cell membranes and then hyperpolarize the postsynaptic neuron. GABA is the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain. Barbiturates reduce the ability of nerves to fine by altering a cell's membrane potential (hyperpolarization). As a result there is less neuronal activity. At high doses, barbiturates become more dangerous because they are able to stimulate GABAa receptors directly in the absence of GABA. Other sedative/hypnotics like benzodiazepines must have GABA present for the drug to work. Barbiturates also block glutamate receptors in the CNS. Glutamate is the primary excitatory neurotransmitter. So barbiturates have two basic actions, to slow the brain down AND to block stimulation. As a result barbiturates typically cause more sedation, are more addictive, and are very lethal. Phenobarbital is a very long acting barbiturate that can, to some extent, have a duration of action of up to two days and a half life of up to 120hrs however when taken orally 2-3 doses are typically taken per day. Thiopental, on the other hand is ultra-short-acting and has a duration of action of about 20 min. It typically takes oral phenobarbital 30-45 min to start to work, peak plasma concentrations are reached at about 7 to 12 hours. Also please note that an "overdose" is a terms almost always misused. Normally people actually mean a poisoning, barbiturate poisoning in this case. Death can be a result of complications including acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), shock (including shallow and infrequent breathing), respiratory depression, central cardiovascular depression, hypoxia, and coma. Alcohol will synergize with the barbiturates, potentiating them. In addiction alcohol acts on a large number of neurotransmitters either directly or indirectly. Depending on how much alcohol, and more importantly phenobarbital was used along with how long it took to get medical help would determine if a person lives or dies and how quickly. Unlike benzodiazepines there is no "antidote" for barbiturate poisoning. Answered by Ashli Bombard 1 year ago.

Taking an overdose is serious. Psychiatric help is needed. People always think that its going to end things, but in reality, failed suicide attempts are something a person has to live with the rest of their lives and if its damaging enough to a persons health, they have to deal with that afterwards (brain damage etc). 10-14 sleeping pills, wouldn't do much, alcohol is never good with any medications. But most likely if they tell someone, their stomach would be pumped at the hospital. Answered by Elza Prazenica 1 year ago.

It's the barbiturate that is the main danger, but the alcohol increases the depressing effects on the heart and lungs. Your question is too vague on how long and what alcohol level, because it is entirely dependent on the level of barbiturate in the blood and the victim's resistance to the drugs & alcohol. A longtime feeble addict or drunk may survive a dose that would kill a healthy 21 year old. Barbiturates slow the flow of neural messages throughout the body. This includes the brain's autonomic function telling your lungs to breath and your heart to beat. If you overdose, there is a 10% chance you won't survive. If you do X amount of downers that will depress 80% of your brain function and you had enough booze with it to depress 20% of your brain function, your body turns off. You can play with different fractions, but you see what I mean. Why do you think they use barbiturates for lethal injection executions? Because it works so quickly & efficiently to make you take your last breath. Check the links. Answered by Toney Laclaire 1 year ago.

Is it possible to create a lethal injection at home for a smooth ride to heaven ?
Asked by Joy Rebert 1 year ago.

Unless you have access to very large amounts of rapid acting barbiturates like Nembutal (pentobarbital), Sodium Pentothal (sodium thiopental), or Seconal (secobarbital) then no. It is also nearly impossible to get those medications. In many countries those drugs are now only available for IV use in hospital. Most suicide attempts fail or they cause significant complications leaving a person alive and miserable. If highly lethal, painless, "smooth" drugs could be made a home it would be well known. I don't know why you are asking this or what your problems are however I do highly recommend you go to the nearest emergency department or call an ambulance is you are seriously thinking about hurting yourself and are actively suicidal. If you are having suicidal ideation then please call your doctor, go to hospital, or get help. Aside from the fact there is nothing that will be able to give you the "smooth ride" you want, you should seek medical attention. Answered by Lulu Farron 1 year ago.

First you have to get your ticket from St. Peter. No ticket, no trip. And no easy home suicide mixtures. Think of the possibilities- if not suicide, then maybe murder. Some people think suicide is the same as murder, morally, so your trip might not be in the desired direction. Answered by Creola Codell 1 year ago.


If you tried to kill yourself by overdose...?
im writing a story and need information how many would you need what type of painkillers would you need and how long would it take and what happens btw im not suicidal it is for a novel lol Asked by Merle Blaser 1 year ago.

I would not go with an analgesic (pain killer). In sates and countries where euthanasia is legal and people who want to have access to lethal drugs in case something happens and they can no longer function the most used drugs are barbiturates, a class of drugs used for insomnia, anxiety, epilepsy, among other things. However most barbiturates are very rarely used since safer alternatives are available. People like Marilyn Monroe and Jimi Hendrix are some of the most famous people to die from a barbiturate overdose (technically called a poisoning). The most dangerous drugs are Nembutal (pentobarbital), Sodium Pentothal (sodium thiopental), Seconal (secobarbital), and Amytal (amobarbital), The issue is that your character would somehow have to have access to these drugs and that is not easy to do. In fact the only reason I feel comfortable talking about the dangers of barbiturates is because they are almost impossible to gain access to so people can't easily suicide with them. Answered by Shannon Simonelli 1 year ago.

People who try just using narcotics are generally unsuccessful. The mechanism is respiratory depression, and it isn't at all uncommon to see people taking only 6 or 8 breaths per minute if they've overdone their narcotics, but there seems to be an inverse relationship between whether they want to die and whether it kills them. For Tylenol, one pill for every kilogram body mass will eventually do the trick, but it takes so long that you can discard that as a story possibility. Likewise, NSAID's like ibuprofen take a couple of pills per kg, but deaths are so rare that it won't do for your story. Answered by Tiffany Schub 1 year ago.

I have tried Lunesta with no luck AT all and Ambien helped some what for about a month. Now I am back to not sleeping. I know they all effect people different but I am hoping to find something that doesn't make me groggy the next day but knocks me out at night! I have tried natural remedies, avoiding caffeine, getting exercise. Nothing helps! I am tired when I go to bed but I just lay there and when I do fall asleep it isn't continuous. Answered by Kati Guralnick 1 year ago.

here's a list that might be useful: ambien, butisol sodium, carbrital, dalmane, coral, halcion, placidyl, prosom, restoril, rozerem, seconal, and sonata. you can look those up to see what's best for you, but here's some info on some of them. rozerem- it's not only a sleeping aid, but the main point is to correct your sleep/wake cycle sonata- this is an aid that stay in your system in the shortest amount of time, so you fall asleep when YOU feel drowsy, and doesn't have that groggy feeling in the morning benzodiazepines-stays in your system longer, kinda like ambien antidepressants- such as trazadone. makes you sleepy, but not the "punch" or strong effect like ambien has I hope this helps!! I know what you're going thru:/ sometimes I only get like 1 or 2 hours of sleep, but I hope you find something that helps. good luck!! Answered by Denice Poro 1 year ago.

Relaxed, peaceful sleep is as important to your health and productivity as food. If you aren't getting at least seven hours of sleep every night, you're not promoting optimal health and well-being. You just don't perform as well, the next day. Frankly, you'll just plain be grouchy. Melatrol Natural Sleep Aid is made with Melatonin and other natural ingredients. Melatonin works with your own body to support its natural sleep cycle It's combined with natural herbs to encourage relaxation. Answered by Dorian Galford 1 year ago.

With my recent battle with Lymphoma, the best sleeping pill I was prescribed was and still is : Zopiclone 7.5mg. Small bean shaped and are blue. Trouble is they are quite addictive after long term use. They get you to sleep and you wake up not drowsy. Hope this helps. Answered by Josue Lastella 1 year ago.
