Question How long for OD symptoms? - July 4th 2013, 03:47 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of self harm, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Hi, I don't want to risk breaking the rules, so i'll be brief. I was just wondering if anyone knows how long it would be before you feel the effects of an OD if you're going to get any?
I know this isn't a proper medical thingy, just if anyone has any rough idea, that would be great, thanks.

Hi there,

It would depend on a lot of factors. What you took, how much of it you took, possibly even your height/weight etc would come into play. The answer to these questions doesn't matter. If you've taken an overdose of anything, seek medical help ASAP.

Hi there,

I'm sorry for the late reply but as the poster above said, it will depend on the amount taken, on what was taken etc. But if you have taken an overdose/suspect someone you know has you need to seek medical help asap as obviously it can be extrememly dangerous.
I hope you're okay, if you ever want/need to talk, feel free to PM me,

Take care

Thank you both for your replies. I decided to just leave it and see what happened because i didn't want to have to tell anyone- sorry. As far as i know, i'm okay, as i just got a headache and bit of an upset stomach.
Again thank you both for replying.

Dude tricky business I would not suggest doing it again. I just got out of the hospital a couple of days ago for an OD. My boyfriend dragged me because I puked for like 3 hours straight and this blood started to come up. I couldn't keep anything down including water and I got super dehydrated. So I had to get an IV and they had to run a bunch of tests. Trust me it is so not worth it. Take the recommended amount or only a little more. Never take enough to OD
