Wow! I'm glad that you're ok. Please be careful as such mistakes can have tragic outcomes.

What do you mean guys don't knit?

Linux: because a PC is a terrible thing to waste.

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.

I have been looking at my pills and checking that the little code on it is correct ever since this happened, believe me. We also got the different colored bottle.

It occurred to me a couple days after this happened--thank heavens I wasn't driving!
If at first you don't it and try again!

No kidding!

That could have been fatal in more ways than one! I'm so glad you are okay.

Although, I'll admit that I probably could laugh about it once everything turned out okay.

Wow. Isn't that the stuff that you aren't supposed to take unless you can afford 8 hours for "a good night's sleep". That's a nightmare no pun intended. I'm glad you're ok.

I'm glad you're ok how scary!!!! That's like my worst nightmare come true. I don't take medication myself, but my mother has a whole cocktail of meds to take daily and I always worry that she will take too much of one or not enough of the other because of some mix up and have horrible side effects. She still lives on her own so its a big concern of mine.

Thank goodness you're ok. Sleeping pills scare me. I always worry about taking the wrong meds. I don't have too many, but i keep them separate from any one else's in the house. I've thought about putting different colored rubber bands on the bottles or a sticker. Maybe two different stickers. One that's yours specifically and one to tell you when to take it? Just a thought.

I have a two meds for my migraines. One I know not to take if I'm going to be driving or doing anything that I have to be "here" for. I'm always worried I'll take the wrong one some day.

the sleeping tablets i was put on a while ago had quite a steep curve to their strangth. I could take up to 5 tablets and still be within the 'safe' dose but i normally only too two and would be still a littel groggy the next day after that.

Once (after 4 days and nights of no sleep despite taking my normal dose) i took 4 tablets and very quickly felt absolutely dreadful - nauseus, lightheaded groogy couldnt move my limbs properly. It worried me so much that i of course didnt sleep.

That was bad enough when i was expecting the effects of a sleeping tablet. If i hadn't been expecting a sleeping tablet effect i don't know what i would have done.

Different coloured stickers might be a good idea
