Episode Summary

Deadly Doses

A 36-year-old woman experiencing inexplicable itching all over her body overdoses on antihistamines. The woman appears to be fine for a time at the hospital, but then she goes into cardiac arrest and dies. Dr. G discovers from the woman's medical history that the woman had lupus, an autoimmune disease. Dr. G tries to find out whether the overdose caused the woman's death, or if the woman died of a complication of her condition.

A 50-year-old woman collapses at home and dies in the hospital. The woman had been experiencing chronic pain for years due to injuries received in a car accident. The woman experienced depression due to the pain, making suicide a possible cause of death. It's up to Dr. G to find out if the woman took her life, accidentally overdosed on her pain medication, or died in some other way.
