Dr Anne Campbell, a consultant histopathologist at Hull Royal Infirmary, who carried out the post mortem, said each of the three drugs independently would have been enough to cause death.
Coroner David Rosenberg recorded a narrative verdict, saying there was not enough evidence to rule suicide or accident. He said: "Her intention in taking the overdose is uncertain."
Speaking after the inquest, her mother Barbara Page said she will remember her daughter as being kind, clever and loyal.
