After 8 days in the hospital for pancreatitis, and given Methadone my 22 year old died less than eight hours after his dismissal. According to his autopsy it was "accidental toxic effects of heroin, methadone and cocaine". Per his lab report, Methadone 0. Nothing in his Blood Heart. Blood femoral had 2-ethylidene-1, 5-dimethyl, 3-diphenylpyrrolidine 0. Should he have been given Methadone with his stomach issues? He had been in the hospital 8 times in his last 14 months of life for pancreatitis attacks.

Before we met he used to have a really good job, came from a good, Christian family. But he got into an automotive accident and broke his back which he recovered from. But he had to be put on Oxys. Eventually he became addicted to them and eventually started selling them for profit. He got in trouble and went to prison. There he was introduced to heroin. From what he told me he's gotten clean and relapsed multiple times.
When we first started dating we were both homeless. That's when he last relapsed. We now have an apartment and a car despite his addiction. I refuse to use drugs and he won't let me either. He does it only in the home. He's going to rehab "hopefully" in a week for the 7 day detox. He just wants to make sure that I'll be taken care of when he goes. He's said to me that he's come to face the fact that he'll never be clean that he'll still get high on weekends like how some people go out for a drink after work.
He thinks anyone can do any drug recreationally. He says that getting high is the only way he knows how to deal with what he's done with his life. I am not leaving him because a part of me still sees a glimmer of hope that he can get clean and stay clean. A friend with a 75 mg autopsy heroine overdose.

Benzodiazepines have a wide therapeutic index and taken alone in overdose rarely cause severe complications or fatalities. More often than not, a patient who inadvertently takes more than the prescribed dose will simply feel drowsy and fall asleep for a few hours. Benzodiazepines taken in overdose in combination with alcohol , barbiturates , opioids , tricyclic antidepressants , or sedating antipsychotics , anticonvulsants , or antihistamines are particularly dangerous.
In the case of alcohol and barbiturates, not only do they have an additive effect but they also increase the binding affinity of benzodiazepines to the benzodiazepine binding site , which results in a very significant potentiation of the CNS and respiratory depressant effects. In addition, the elderly and those with chronic illnesses are much more vulnerable to lethal overdose with benzodiazepines.
Fatal overdoses can occur at relatively low doses in these individuals. Clonazepam is a commonly abused drug, due in part to the desirable effects it produces relaxation, euphoria, sedation and how easy it is to access due to the fact that is widely prescribed.

So, theoretically if you were a 55Kg rat you will need to take over a lakh of 1mg tablets to die because of clonazepam.
However, in any case no drug should be taken beyond the prescribed dosage and if the effect of drug is not to be felt visit your physician instead of self medicating. Clonazepam is a long acting benzodiazepine. It has a very long half life meaning it takes your body, much longer time to get rid of the drug, than other similar drugs. The maximum dose is about 15 mg. Because the drug stays in your system for so long, if you take more of it then you will have a lot of clonazepam working through your liver.
Add to that, possibly that your body may severely react to the drug in your body. Complications can be varied and include a sudden drop in blood pressure, which could be really very dangerous. This page may be out of date. Save your draft before refreshing this page.
