I took ---- pills and i think i should probably call 999 or something but i am terrified and I don't know what will happen?
Can anyone tell me what they will do or does anyone mind sharing any personal experiences?

Hi there.

You really do need to call 999 or take yourself to hospital. I had to call an ambulance for my mum several times after she'd overdosed. On the phone they'll ask for your name, address etc and ask what the problem is (what you've taken and how many and so on) and they'll probably stay on the phone with you until the ambulance gets to you if you want them too.

When I was taken to hospital from school in an ambulance because of an overdose, they again, asked basic information (date of birth, next of kin etc) and again about what had happened and what I had taken. They might do general checks in the ambulance such as your temp and blood pressure etc. Once you get to hospital you'll be admitted on to a&e where I assume they'll do tests such as blood tests to determine whether you need treatment ie a drip and so on. Depending on what you have taken and how many they may start the treatment before they get the results back for your own health. If the treatment is needed, I assume you will then be admitted onto a ward.

I hope this makes sense and that you get the help you need. I know right now you need to get the medical attention but once you've got that help, if you want to talk to me about anything, you're more than welcome to shoot me a PM. Please try and get help and keep fighting this.

I hope it all goes okay,
