Depends upon doses: All medicines have a threshold to cause signs of intoxication. If you know how much you did take ( number of pills or milligrams.) call the Poison Control Center 18002823171 in the USA to see if you should worry or go to the emergency room? If this happened recently in matter of few hours try to vomit them.

Ribavirin: Overdose with this antiviral medication can cause serious problems including destruction of red blood cells causing dangerous anemia and can cause damage to the liver. More information can be obtained by the poison center near your location.

Agree with Dr. C: What are you taking this medication for? If you are taking it for Hep C, there are newer less toxic medications and you should talk to your doctor about different medication.
