I took 7 tablets of Paracetamol and 8 tablets of Ibuprofen, yesterday within 15 minutes because of family problems. (disowned)


And nothing has happened yet, except i keep getting small pains in my stomach. How long is it before, there are any symptoms?

Yes, well, liver problems don't show up immediately. As was said on your earlier thread, they are not the best way to kill yourself.

I suggest you make your way to a hospital.

There are often no symptoms in the first 24 hours following overdose, although there may be mild nausea and vomiting. In a large overdose liver function deteriorates leading to jaundice, confusion, and loss of consciousness. Death is rare but when it occurs it is due to liver failure.

Treatment of a serious paracetamol overdose is mainly by administration of an antidote which can prevent the toxic effects of the overdose. This must be done early, ideally within 12 hours of the overdose although it can still be beneficial up to 24 hours or even later.

What were you hoping to achieve by taking that many tablets?
