My friend overdose.


Q: My friend's been very depressed lately. I came home from work today and there was a message from her in my Facebook inbox. She said she had just overdosed.
She listed :
10aposertraline (Zoloft) (so over 500mg total)
10sleeping pills (she didn't specify)
5codeine pills (150mg total)
5tylenol extra strength
5ibuoprofen (1000mg total)
3mefenamic acid (250mg each)

...and half a 26er of whiskey .

The message was sent 40 minutes ago. I called my other immediately and she called an ambulance. I can't reach them anymore and I live in another town, what will happen to my friend, will she die ? :'( or fall into a coma !?!? She also specified she didn't want her Mom knowing about it. Her mom's her guardian. She's 16, will they contact her mom still? She's gonna be so mad at me if they do.
