I have a friend who is currently ODing on Unisom (I am not with him) some people who are with him called me originally to try and find what he was taking.
They described his symptoms as incoherent, vomiting, general "messed up" (not very specific I know).
I know my friend likes to experiment with diphenhydramine
and was talking about taking maybe 750 mg the next time he did it, he was "experimenting quite often in the last month or so maybe once or twice a week at MAX (I am not sure the frequency) the highest he had gone before was I think (not sure) 650 mg.
I also understand that Unisom comes in two varieties one containing diphenhydramine and one containing Doxylamine I am wondering if maybe he took the wrong Unisom for his purposes (doxylamine) or maybe he just took too much diphenhydramine.
Does this fit the description of an OD on either of these substances?
I know that the incoherence definitely fits and that stuff, but I was wondering about the vomiting?
I know that 750 mg is quite a bit but i have yet to hear of any people dying or having this bad of a time off of it.
Once again these are approximations.
The only past medical problem that I know of is the fact that he had a seizure when he was one or two.
He is currently being taken to the E.R. I think, not sure though, that was the intent last time I knew.
sorry about the sketchy details, I am just trying to occupy my mind.
Also he weighs in between 140-160 pounds.
Now that I think about it, it could easily be that he is just having a diphenhydramine "trip" (for lack of a better word) and they could be freaking out. The only thing that strikes me as strange is the nausea, though I have heard it to be kinda commonplace, I can't find a source.
