What can 4000mg of Paracetemol and 2000mg of Ibuprofen do to you?
- 21 Feb 2012 by Ferelai
- paracets, ibuprofen, overdose
Would you die?
Would it be a major overdose??? And what are the symptoms and when would they come? (like in 24hours, a few days. None?)
By the way, there was:
8 x 500mg Paracetamol.
6 x 200mg Ibuprofen.
2 x 400mg Ibuprofen.
All within 2-3 hours.

4000mg of paracetamol won't kill you, though taking larger amounts (and often) of the stuff can cause liver damage. It usually takes 24 hours for the symptons to show through, symptons may include; nausea, vomiting and/or abdominal pains. Paracetamol is metabolized in the liver and when the liver is "overloaded" with paracetamol it begins to use secondary processes to metabolize the paracetamol and this process causes a build up of toxins in the system. Your liver is an organ that does not repair itself once it is damaged.
Can't say much about the ibuprofen, sorry.

If you or another person has consumed this medication, you need medical attention right away! Will it cause overdose? maybe. It can certainly cause liver damage as the above poster mentioned. High doses of ibuprofen can cause stomach bleeding. Please seek help if you or someone else has consumed this medication.
