    Probably not, but if you persist in taking these overdoses the most likely outcome is that you won't die but will permanently damage your health and spend the rest of your life as an invalid.

    Is that what you really want?

    Please see your doctor or go to A&E asap. Get some help with whatever problem is making you do crazy things like this.

    Hi sidneya I don't think you will die from that amount but if ou keep taking medication like this you will cause damage to your insides. I think it is so sad that at 16 you wont to die have you spoken to your parents about how you feel I think you need to see a therapist asap this is serious. You have your whole life ahead of you my mental health issues started at 16 and im 31 now im still struggling i wish I was given help at 16 because I may not of had to deal with the issues ive experienced in my late teens and twentys so please see someone about why you wont to die. Death is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.

    I have recently had a similar problem. I had to be clear and honest with my GP. Once she understood the danger I was to myself she referred me as very urgent. I was fitted into a packed schedule (a cancellation I suspect) and I received effective help. That was three weeks ago and I have not been a danger to myself since and much happier.

    I agree with several others. See your GP urgently or if the danger is immediate phone or visit A&E immediately.
