It's been a while since I worked in an Er Room, for coc they have to bring you down as to not blow your heart out. the doc's will go by your verbal if able, the mont of coc you took, how you took it, and when. Coc usually doean't last very long. if you are going to Er to get meds just to bring you down from a habit they WILL KNOW if your drug seeking. Panic attacks have thier own special symtoms. Doctor's these days are pretty well hip to drug abuse. or street drug use. If you truely believe you have over dosed on any drug do not hesitate and dial 911 it maybe the most expensive ride you will ever take but it will be worth every penny. And a good Doc will hook you up with help.

ER nurses and doctors are trainned to see signs of drug overdose. If they suspect overdose they will get you the help you need. Panic attacks will not have same symptoms. So I agree with everything that hadenough123. It has been a while for me also since I worked ER.
