Explain further, was it a self inflicted overdose or a medical error?

I think the Army will be prepared to overlook that one!

Accidental ingestion and overdose are two very different things. Do you have any residual medical issues caused by the tablets? If not I doubt it'll have much bearing! The thing with 'overdose' is the peripheral issues around it ie self harm, suicidal thoughts, mental instability.

As long as the drugs taken did not cause you to have a long term health issue, you should be fine.
