Treatment Of Overdose Of Combiflam
I am advised to take 20mg combiflam tablets for 10 days along with minoz oz 100mg for pimple treatment. I don't have pain anywhere. Is it ok to continu?
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.See 1 more doctor answer
