Overdose, Nausea , head pressure, irritable, fast heart rate

My friend OD on teva carbamazepine 3 weeks ago. She doesn\'t recall the amount she took but she was rushed to the hospital that day and her heart was on the rage of stopping. She was unconscious for 11hours. She told the dc that she didn\'t take anything because she didn\'t want to admitted there. She\'s been feeling EXTREMELY nauseas ever since. The smell of food increases it and she complains that her gut hurts and she also had diarrhea and spotting. Loss up appetite and migraines are also some of her symptoms. Always tired but can\'t sleep, Very irritable, head pressure and sensitive too sounds. In the pass, she\'s had a couple concussions and she has a cyst on her right side of the brain. What could all these symptoms mean? Could anything be damaged because of the OD or most Likely be caused by the cyst or many brain injuries?

It appears that that she is probably depressed and needs an appropriate psychiatrist care. Some of the symptoms may be related to the poisoning and they should subside if she had no permanent organ damage. Cyst in the brain has probably nothing to do with her symptoms.
