Let me just say that I am NOT the kind of person who takes drugs recreationally. I’ve really never seen the point, and have only ever tried a couple of things once and always regretted it. I’d much rather just drink ;L This was just a stupid one-off and will not be happening again!
I had a friend over for a drink last night which was ace! But for f**k knows what reason, our incredibly intoxicated selves thought it’d be a really good idea to take a couple of Diazepam... They’re 2mg tablets so we had a total of 4mg each which I know is a pretty low dose. We were so drunk by this point that we really don’t remember much, only very vaguely remember taking the pills, and can’t recall what the affects were. I know that it was about 2am when we took them though.
It’s now mid-day. I woke up a couple of hours ago feeling quite sick but not overly hungover (god knows how 😂). I certainly don’t feel any noticeable out if the ordinary symptoms, just the usual elevated anxiety that I get after a drinking binge. I’m just mega mega paranoid that I’m still at risk for adverse affects! I’ve read online (which I know is a massive mistake) that you can have seizures, fall into a coma, and even die of respiratory failure from mixing alcohol and benzos! Obviously had I known this last night I definitely wouldn’t have taken them, I always thought it could just make you really drowsy, and my doctor never mentioned anything about not drinking with them so I assumed it wasn’t dangerous!
Does anyone know if I’m still at risk now (about 9 hours after my last drink and 10 hours after taking the diazepam) of any of these things happening?! Like I said I don’t feel anything alarmingly weird, I’m just really worried that something’s gunna happen out of the blue, especially considering I’ve never taken it before last night. I’ve spoken to my Mum about it this morning and she didn’t seem too concerned.
Any advice would be hugely appreciated! x
