Hi, So I want a character to be taking painkillers, but I’m not sure which were available/ used in the 1930s? I also want them to accidentally overdose, but what would be the effects of this? I’ve read up on drug overdoses on the NHS website, but until I decide on a drug available in the 1930s I’m unsure of the effects. I’ve read that people can lose consciousness, but can this be just for a short while, before they wake up, or is loss of consciousness so serious (fatal??) is it best to avoid writing that? For example, is someone losing consciousness for a short while and then waking up, too dramatic and unrealistic?
