I am new here and I do have a pacemaker, but so does my good friend. Over the holiday my best friend seemed very depressed so I took him aside and talked to him. He was open with me and told me he was thinking of suicide because of all of his medical issues. I know he takes valium for anxiety and some kind of opoid painkiller for his legs. My question is, if he were to take overdoses of his meds, would the pacemaker keep him alive.
I know this is a bizarre question but I am worried about him now. He promised me he would call me if he started to have a suicide plan, but I did a search on the Internet and there is no info on this. I hope this is an appropriate question for this website.
