> It was the painkillers that probably killed him rather than the benzos. My doc told me it would be pretty hard to overdose and die with benzos. I tried swalling a bottle of 100 clonazepam tablets once but all that happned was i slept for 20 hours.


While it is sad that this occurred and I'm not dismissing the pain that must have drove you there, it isn't appropriate to post exact amounts of substances that can cause harm or death even if it is related to a personal story.


As for MJ, there were numerous substances and one of the large culprits was a short acting anaesthetic called propofol used frequently for hospital procedures and not available as a prescription item outside such environments, at least from what I recall from reports.

This was misused for inducing sleep which is completely a violation of its intended purpose and tantamount malpractice.

As to answer the previous question, only if you are worried about taking medication and nothing else related to suicide or attempts at such -- benzodiazepines properly used are among, but probably not the least harmful substances used in psychiatry because of how long they have been around.


I won't answer the question about "what kind of dead". Any CNS system depressant, especially multiple ones have the -potential- of respiratory depression, or lung collapse which requires immediate hospitalization. That means, take your medication properly.


If this is different, and you need guidance in a crisis, please try to contact a hotline or go to a hospital -- I know it is probably different in your country as to what to do. Or continue to hold on and talk to people on here who want to help you.


-- best wishes

Jay
