    Call your doctor right away and tell him/her - especially about the awful thoughts. If you're doctor's office is closed and you cannot deal with the awful thoughts, please go to the emergency room, let them know what you are taking and the symptoms you are experiencing. When in doubt, call 911 or go to the emergency room. Don't worry about feeling silly or embarrassed, just GO.
