: My sister is a drug addict. Her drugs of choice are Zanax, Klonopin, etc... She has tried to kill herself twice that I know of. She is right this minute in a hospital suffering from seizures that are long and violent. The seizures have been going on all day. Apparently she took a handfull of zanax a few days ago and then a few on Sunday and now this is the reaction. I haven't been able to get very much info from the hospital, what is going on?? Can anyone help? Thanks.
THOSE DRUGS ARE VERY DANGEROUS WHEN STOPPING THEM. I KNOW THAT DETOXING FROM THEM REQUIRES MEDICAL ATTENTION. SEIZURES IS A SIDE AFFECT. I AM NOT TOO SURE ABOUT TAKING TOO MUCH AND SEIZURES. YOU REALLY NEED TO PUT YOUR FOOT DOWN AND GET SOMEONE AT THE HOSPITAL TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS. ALL OF THE FACTORS NEED TO BE CONSIDERED. BOTH DRUGS ARE BENZODIAZEPINES. YOU COULD RESEARCH THE WEB. IF YOU DO NOT GET ANY INFO FROM THE HOSPITAL, TRY CALLING SOME DRUG TREATMENT CENTERS. THEY ARE VERY INFORMED AND WILL PROBABLY BE HAPPY TO TALK WITH YOU.
