I Think My Friend is ODing. What Should I Do?

I think my best friend is overdosing on anxiety meds (Lexapro) but I don't know how to handle it. If I ask her, she will deny it and become all defensive. But I don't want to tell and adult because I am not a tattle and then she will never trust me on her own. I need to help her so please help me!

does she have a prescription?



you can always leave a note on her mom's car under her windshield wiper if you want to not be caught



but seriously if she'd endangering her health sometiems there are reasons to tattle. it's called being a good friend and caring

truthfully, if her mom is condoning it, then there is little chance she will quit because she prob trusts her mom a lot. you can talk to a teacher, or your mom and see what she says.

I understand what a difficult position this puts you in. I've been in that situation myself, where I didn't want to betray or confront someone who was hurting themselves, for fear of alienating them. I almost lost them. In hindsight, I still don't know what would have been the best course of action, or even if I could have prevented it at all, but I do know that at the time what she needed was to know people cared about her. A heart to heart like Zane_Christian suggested is a good idea. Sometimes, just being there for her is all you can do.



Bottom line, though, if your gut is telling you something is wrong here, people in authority need to know. (I mean, do the doctors say she needs *that* many? Could you perhaps give her GP a heads up? Or a counselor at school?) You may not want to tattle, but I agree with everyone else that her life is at stake and that has to be taken seriously.



All the best, hun. You're definitely not alone in this. This kind of thing is more common than you think.

I wonder why your friend would want to take so many anti-depressants? It won't kill her but still it is not good. So her mom gives her 17 pills in the morning? Of just Lexapro or among other things? And she takes all 17 pills? Have you seen her do this or is she just saying it? 17 seems a bit excessive because if she has a prescription then it won't last long. Does your friend have a mood disorder? Have you seen her really depressed? Or is she the type of person that is trying to get attention? I took a psychopharmacology class and we had to study all these types of drugs.

Yeah she has a prescription. And her mom wouldn't care. She is helping her...she gave her 17 pills this morning. It worries me but apparently her doctors say she "needs" them. (I say doctorS because she goes to 3 shrinks and a general physician)
