Unusual: This is a very uncommon overdose. Huge overdoses have been reported to rarely cause kidney damage and hallucinations. It is not abused by people looking to get "high". It is one of the safest meds ever. LD 50 is unknown, meaning you cannot suicide with it. One or 2 extra doses are not going to cause symptoms.
