Overdosed on ibuprofen about 20 and taking meloxicam feel bad but I just want my life to be over. will taking both of these kill me?
You may be quite ill: Being young (no prior cardiac issues) you're most likely to become quite ill for some time. This is not what you say you want so it will be bad from your POV too.
