    What happens if you take 8 tablets of Ibuprofen and 7 tablets of paracetamol within 15 minutes?

    What does it do to your body if anything?

    Is it dangerous to do this?

    it is technically an overdose and reall you should ring your GP (there will be a number of the on-call docotr on the answer phone)

    i don't know exactly what it does to your body and of course it's dangerous, it's meant to be 2 of either (not both) every 4 hours.

    An overdose of ibuprofen doesn't kill if it is removed from the blood quickly. But it seriously damages the liver and the damage done is permanent so it is a very bad idea.

    It totally f**ks up your liver. All these people who take 'overdoses' to get attention (but not seriously enough to kill themselves) don't seem to realise how bad paracetamol is for your liver. My friend has liver damage and has to take loads of pills every day and can't go drinking with her mates at uni because of it and it basically rules her life now.
    On the other hand if you took it because you are generally in pain about something (periods? I know how you feel) then just get some quality painkillers. Morphine or soemthing...I dunno. I'm not a doctor.

    If your gonna overdose, dont use paracetamol. It ****s up your liver, so if you survive, you have big problems when your older.

    That's the most practical advice I've heard ;]

    Overdosing is so contemptable though. You know why

    How do you know? I take methotrexate which can have really bad side effects so I have to have a blood test every 6 weeks to check my liver. The liver can take a hell of a lot of punishment before you start to show symptoms.


    Kish it's just stupid, you could well damage your liver with that and you wouldn't get 'high' so no point really.
