Acne????: Neither acetominophen nor Ibuprofen will help acne. I do not know "minoz oz". If this is minocycloine, then it is useful for acne as a small dose for many months. For adult women who are not pregnant, the most effective treatment is spironolactone..

I heavily overdosed on aspirin (80k mg+) and didn't get treatment until about 5-6 hrs later. Could I have caused any long term damaged to myself?

I heavily overdosed on aspirin (80k mg+) and didn't get treatment until about 5-6 hrs later. Could I have caused any long term damaged to myself?

No: If you recovered from the acute illness, you should not suffer long term damage, with the exception of the disorder that led you to overdose yourself. It would be a good idea to seek counseling for your attempted suicide. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. Practice safe sex.
