    Hi there darklight

    Let's put it this way, if anyone is serious enough about suicide they won't post here or anywhere asking for help.

    However, if you are concerned or are having 2nd thoughts I'd suggest you go straight to A&E and let them decide.

    Hi there Darklight

    As I have already mentioned, you would need to contact a GP or medical person.

    You could ring NHS Direct on 0845 4747, you can do this anonymously.

    Hello Darklight,

    Prozac is one of the brand names under which Fluoxetine is sold. You ask what damage can occur by taking 16 tablets with alcohol?

    In Toowoomba, Australia, several years ago, a 73 year old man suffering early stages of dementia forgot he had taken his tablet, and by the tablets left in the bottle he appears to have taken 5. He murdered his wife with an axe and will never come out of the institution in which he has been incarcerated. This is a true story.

    Please don't mess with dangerous chemicals or exceed the recommended dosage. Apart from the possibility of brain damage or other accidental injury to yourself you run the risk of hurting innocent others. Adding alcohol to the mix is just plain dumb.

    Don't you think that you are being irresponsible asking such a question?

    Most people who come onto this site are trying to get better, improve their lives and do something about it - not seek ways to end it all on the medication that they have been prescribed.

    Well if you have accidentally taken all those tablets why are you messing around on the computer instead of seeking swift medical attention.

    You sound like a troll and as such you do not warrant the attention you seem to be getting.

    Always stick to the instructions on a drug packet and do not deviate ... full stop!

    Taking alcohol with any drug is not recommended ..... full stop!

    Hi again Darklight

    I'm sorry that you feel everyone has jumped to the wrong conclusion with regards to your first post here and on another forum but when you post such comments without any explanation it does come across as someone who is asking because they or someone they know has done what you posted.

    Perhaps you could explain your reason for asking the question in the first place so people can give you some reasonable and accurate information/advice or help.
