A doctor gave me one pill called Amitriptyline 10 mg for pain, not for what it's used for.
If I now have too much of neurotransmitters such as serotonin going into the synapses from the, presynaptic cells, (serotonin syndrome) and the possibility of noradrenaline or other may be a part of the problem, would the cure for this be to put me into a coma while I’m hooked up to an oxygen machine. If not, what’s the cure? If yes, how long would I be kept in a coma to stop serotonin syndrome?
During the coma would I be kept in the emergency room or put in a room?
After I’ve been revived from the coma would I be kept in the emergency room or put in a room?
After I’ve been revived how long would I be kept in the hospital?
Would I lose a lot of weight while in a coma?
