I would definitely phone 111 as Helena has suggested.
It's likely that you'll be ok, but obviously it does depend on what it is you've taken. Also, presuming the drink you took them with was alcoholic, it's best you get medical attention.

Next time you must ask for help prior to taking an overdose. I hope you are well cared for in hospital and that you are offered some decent support with your feelings.
