Our expert says:
One CAN overdose on anything ; fortunately some things are less likely to be harmful if one does, and Zopimed is towards the safer end of the spectrum. But even if a dose of it on;y put one to sleep soundly for a day, that in itself can be dangerous, so that, for instance, one might vomit and inhale one's vomit, etc. What you could do would be to say frankly to her that you are worried about her, especially because she has threatened to take an overdose, and you'd prefer to take control of the tablets, to help her keep safe.
What I don't understand is this --- if she has a serious depression, and a diagnosis of bipolar disorder --- why is it only the Zolpidem that you're concerned about ? Isn't she receiving other meds, like antidepressants ? Is someone else caring for those ? And wouldn't it be wisest to discuss this concern with her, and with her parents ?
