    I already have suicidal ideation. Last night I took 2 mgs of Xanax and 3 times my dose of Lamictal. I didn't want to kill myself then but I thought it would make me feel better. About 30 mins later I could hardly see and I couldn't walk; I had no coordination. I don't remember what happened next but I woke up 4 hours later on the floor. I googled Lamictal overdose and it said an overdose can cause seizures or DEATH. I'm pretty sure I had a had a seizure. I'm scared right now because I've already called the crisis line 4 times. They always ask me if I have the means to take my own life and until now my answer was "no". I'm afraid if things get really bad (I'm going through a HUGE amount of stress), I'm going to take a bunch on purpose. I don't really want to die but I don't know how much longer I can deal with what I'm going through and now I DO have the means to take my own life.

    I'm terrified. I just need some support please. Especially after what happened last night. All the symptoms were those of Lamictal overdose....

    Please get yourself checked out by a medical professional. It's great you don't want to die, but now you need to follow that through and fight for your life. You can't know the damage those tablets have done inside.

    Can you call your doctor? The Crisis Line? Go to A&E/ER?

    Tell Crisis you have the means, you are reaching out for help, get all the help you can, why lie about how desperate you are?
