Pt ingested fly bait, suicide attempt overdose. Easy to administer. Ran IV @ 8mg/kg/hr until pt returned to pre-overdose behavior. Kept pt from seizing and tremoring. Atropine was given as well. Ativan and valium were used PRN for anxiety, tremors. Dilantin was used to help prevent seizures. Pt extubated and on the road to recovery. Unsure of long term effects of OD or use of pralidoxime.
