I took accidentally three 10 mg Zolpidem instead of my Biotin tablets( almost the same orange bottle). Shortly after I fell asleep or unconscious and my family couldn't wake me up and I was completely messed up. I've got rushed to the ER and and I showed stroke like symptoms and they treated for these symptoms because I couldn't remember and my family didn't know about my mistake .
My questions now are can I even show symptoms with this amount of Zolpidem or did I have actually a stroke?

I had two Ct scans who showed no scar tissues for a stroke , but the docs said it was a TIA. And since I was so confused and knocked out I'm not even 100% sure if I mixed the bottles up, I have a completey memory loss.
It was most likely the zolpidem. Did they do a scan of your head? That would tell you if you had a stroke. Tell your regular dr about the error and he can decide what it was. And from now on, read labels. Never assume a pill is the one you want because the bottle is the same. It used to be you could tell by the way the pill looks what it was, but those days are gone.
