PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) - Four Panama City high school students are out of the hospital, but one remains in stable condition after overdosing on an antidepressant.
As many as six students at Arnold High School were given the antidepressant Elavil. Authorities described the students as "like zombies" and said some ingested as many as seven pills. One student took only one pill and refused to go to the hospital.
The problem was discovered after a student left a classroom to go to the restroom and returned to the wrong room.
The Bay County Sheriff's office says criminal charges may be pending against the person who brought the drug to the school.
Investigators believe the drugs were found in a parent's medicine cabinet.
