That is acceptable when there is not a specific ICD-9 for the drug, but if you take a look at the Table of Drugs, I would suggest you consider 963.0, then use either E858.1, E933.0, E950.4, E962.0, or E980.4 (per the medical documentation) to further explain circumstance or reason for the overdose. :)

Thank you, I acutally found looked more into it after I posted and I did go with the 963.0. Again thank you for your help.
