Alcohol overuse is bad news . Can be sleeping and have these, the bizarre dreams, can be awake or sleeping. Hearing things, seeing things, can just be jumbled all together. If you cannot navigate basic activities, loss of navigation balance, barfing then it is likely bad. Not just a hangover, but serious issues.
Things can go from bad to extremely bad in just moments like these. Calling ambulance or getting to an er with a friend is almost certainly the best bet and done quickly.
Doctor may ask "see things one the walls?" Black things, weird visuals things, hearing things. Other basics, what day it is, president. The latter may not be answered because of basic confusion and mental sate. But the hallucinations if asked should actually resister and answered as asked, so they can best
help you and determine 'yours' and their priorities in treating you.
An IV should be started pretty much immediately after they get you situated. If needed a valium dose may be administered immediately if needed.
The negatives should start to subside to a reasonable level in a short time, 5 minutes to start. This may not work within 10 15 minutes. So one would
likely get another dose fairly quickly, or get started with ativan through their iV. These should stop most of the bad feelings, hallucinations.
If things do not get better or even worse, like a seizure, being admitted would be what they would have you do. Days weeks of drinking takes a toll. Short stay in the hospital, an hour or 3, a day two, if seizure related a week maybe, heavily sedated to avoid another possible seizure. With the atmosphere, the doctors, friendly nurses, other workers etc, should feel fairly content and comfortable and sleep pretty well.
If not staying long a prescription would get you over the 2 3 4 day sensitive time with a 5 day prescription. The initial hospital visit would rid you of most issues. Shakes if you happen to have had them them. You may still shake, sweat one moment freezing the next, for a few days. Generally feeling bad but lasts a few days if sent home, day 4 start eating again. Getting back to a feeling normalcy, instead of drinking is best.
