See below: If you’re positive the number is 40 and not more, then what you might expect within 6 hours is nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, drowsiness, and headache, possibly rapid eye movement, double vision, ringing in the ears, or temporary difficulty hearing or deafness. If you possibly took more, call (800) 222-1222 for further guidance. If you feel your health is at risk, call 911.

The next question becomes how 40 tablets of ibuprofen were taken. If it was intentional at the time, and there is ever risk of doing it again, then this is a good number to call (800) 273-8255 for additional guidance.
