Is 2275mg of acetaminophen enough to overdose? A friend of mine texted me about taking 7 5/325 Percocet and I'm scared for him.

Is 2275mg of acetaminophen enough to overdose? A friend of mine texted me about taking 7 5/325 Percocet and I'm scared for him.

Generally not: but depends on whether it was combined with alcohol or not. The toxic dose of acetaminophen is usually in the range of 7000-10,000 mg, but almost any amount of alcohol can cause smaller amounts to be toxic. If your friend values your opinion, and understands that you are concerned about him, see if you can get him to see a counselor regarding his drug use BEFORE there is a worse problem. ...Read more

Given shot of terbutaline, didn't help & i'm left w/ contractions & massive headache. Online this drug seems unsafe n not proven to help. Why give it?

Given shot of terbutaline, didn't help & i'm left w/ contractions & massive headache. Online this drug seems unsafe n not proven to help. Why give it?

Terbutaline: Terbutaline will sometimes stop your contractions long enough(36-48 hours) to give you a steroid treatment that will help the lung maturity of your baby as well as lessen other problems if the baby delivers early. Other drugs are used more commonly now as terbutaline can cause problems. There is no drug that you can take every day that will prolong your pregnancy. These are only short term. ...Read more

Is it safe to masturbate while having prostatitis?

Here are some...: Your taking these drugs led me to assume that you have been evaluated & counseled by professionals for your urinary symptoms, who should be the ones knowing why these drugs were prescribed and what may be expected. All other online inquiry would not be good enough to give opinions for your individual situations. So, ask them except you do not trust them or just want to hear what you like to hear. ...Read more

I've taken 2 sleep aid tablets that contains 25mg of Doxylamine succinate and 2 pain killers containing 5mg. Have I overdosed? 24yo male.

I've taken 2 sleep aid tablets that contains 25mg of Doxylamine succinate and 2 pain killers containing 5mg. Have I overdosed? 24yo male.

Max daily dose is: 60 mg/d in divided doses 4-6 hrs apart. It may interact with other medications so best to check with pharmacist about interactions with the specific pain killer even though it is in combo with the pain killer since you have taken an additional 50 mg above what was included in the pain killer. Overdose is 50-500 mg/kg and may include dilated pupils, seizures, hallucinations so you should be okay. ...Read more

Hi. My wife overdosed on pills. She took 20 melatonin (4mg), 9 methocarbamol (750mg), 6 naproxen (500 mg) and 4 benadryl (diphenhydramine). What can happen to her? She

She will survive,..: She will survive with initial discomfort with sedation, and nausea. But why she did this is now more important! it does not seem like a serious attempt, but a cry for help. But it could have been serious, if she thought the combination would kill her. She needs psychotherapeutic help asap. Make sure she receives it. ...Read more

Took 1 painaid for headache.(110mg acetaminophen-162mg aspirin-33mg caffeine-152mg salicylamide). Had 6 cocktails after. Concerned about liver damage?

Cocktails: I'd be more worried about the 6 cocktails ... Especially if that's a regular occurrence. If so, talk to a psychiatrist or psychologist about how you might cut down. 1 tablet would not cause irreversible damage. Hope that helps! ...Read more

I'm taking snooze-in from the vitamin shoppe. It has 100mg valeria, 75mg scullcap, 75mg hops, 3mg. Melatonin, 75mg. Is this this safe?

Yes: This product is very safe. This will help many people but not everyone. If it does not help consider other natural sleep aids like 5-hydroxtryptophan, glycine, california poppy and magnolia bark. These (and what you are taking) are all much safer than prescription sleeping pills. See http://www.Mindbodygreen.Com/0-5104/herbs-for-insomnia.Html. ...Read more
