... prescribe 90 pills at a time for someone who was an alcoholic previously and has been sober for past 12 yrs., when the FDA states a doc should not prescribe this med to anyone with previous alcohol abuse issues. The tox report stated he had 2430 ng/ml in his system at the time of his death. How many pills would he have taken to be ruled a suicide? Should I challenge the coroners decision that this was a suicide? I truly feel that he did not commit suicide. He just abused the drug by over indulgence. Anyone with suggestions?
I don't know the answer to all your questions but welcome to the site and I am sorry for your loss. Many alcoholics do have seizures when they stop drinking and lorazepam is often rx'ed to stop or prevent seizures, and it also helps with shaking or trembling. It is pretty difficult for a dr to know what the patient is doing with the medication once the dr writes the rx. I am terribly sorry for your loss. Patti
I wish I knew.
I often feel like taking my own life but don't want to mess up by not taking enough medication to fail.
I also have a list of other antidepressants liker Diazepam and Amitriptyline Trazodone but I don't think they would work.
I also have a list of medication like pregabalin and Gabapentin.
Do I just take the lot and hope for the best
