I just took 20 gel Advil (ibuprofen) about 5 minutes ago. Am I going to die?

Of course; we all do: The question is when! You should go to the ER now and they will pump your stomach to reduce the amount that you can absorb into your blood stream.

The lexotanine is a benzodiazepam and has addictive potential, so this medicine should be well supervised and taken with caution. Taking Advil (ibuprofen) daily is a risk for his kidneys and also may cause Rebound Headache..worse headache from daily pain pills. Work with Doc for better program. ...Read more
