You’re not in danger, no. Just don’t take anymore tonight and keep hydrated.

As the above user said youre perfectly fine.
The guidelines will say any more than about 10 in a go is something to worry about, however, that is generally speaking just to air on the safe side. So, yes, you're fine.

I don't know what guidelines you're referring to, but that's pretty incorrect information.

You're more than welcome to ring 111 and ask their opinion on eating 5gr of apap in one sitting and see what their advice on the matter is.

111 doesn't know its arse from it's elbow, but suggesting to people that taking no more than 10 isn't something to worry about isn't correct and claiming this is based on a guideline isn't safe advice.

Quite possibly. Might one ask what authority on which you speak by the way? I mean its a rather simple fact that 5gr of apap is unlikely to do any damage, let alone kill the average person. That isnt to say it is safe (a claim i never made i might add).

5g of paracetamol is an adequate amount to cause harm to someone under 65kg. I don't quite know where you are getting your "simple facts" from.

Didn't you know that TSR users have complied their own TOXBASE? It's far more authoritative and up-to-date. I'm surprised you're not yet using it in clinical practice.

Post it specifically, because it's contrary to the Royal College of Emergency Medicine and the National Poisons Information Service.
