Would this work? the only medicine that I have access to that might kill me is Ritalin (as far as I'm aware) I would be in a forest so it is unlikely someone would find me unless they were looking for me. I would do more research into where exactly I should cut to try to bleed out and how to properly hang myself but I just wanted a general idea on if this method would work

An overdose on Ritalin (methylphenidate) is very unpleasant and unlikely to be fatal. But trust me, you'll definitely wish it was fatal at the time! It will also make it extremely difficult for you to perform other methods (or do much of anything) while it is happening.

Cutting and hanging as their own methods should be covered in detail in the Resource Compilation.
