Excedrin Overdose Treatment

September 12th, 2007 by | Category: Medicine

Excedrin acts as pain reliever and fever reducer. It is also used to treat headache (including migraine), toothaches, backache, menstrual cramps, muscle aches, and arthritis, colds and sinus infections. The doctor may prescribe Excedrin to relieve aches and pains other than the above-mentioned problems.

Taking more than the dose recommended by physician can cause health problems that can get very serious, problems like liver damage. In case you or some you know has overdosed on Excedrin, seek medical help or contact a poison control center immediately. Both for children as well as adults prompt medical attention is critical even if you do not notice any signs or symptoms. Just knowing that someone has taken more Excedrin than recommended by the doctor is enough reason to see and inform the doctor right away.

If you consume 3 or more alcohol-containing drinks per day on an average, you should consult your physician for advise on when and how you should take Excedrin or for that matter any other pain reliever. Before you start taking Excedrin you should discuss your present medical status with your doctor and inform him/her if you have any of the following problems; glaucoma, breathing problem such as emphysema or chronic bronchitis, and experiencing trouble urinating because of an enlarged prostate gland. Also ask your doctor or pharmacist before taking Excedrin if you are taking tranquilizers or sedatives.

You should stop using Excedrin if new symptoms like sleeplessness or insomnia etc occur. If sleeplessness lasts continuously for more than 2 weeks or Insomnia may be a symptom of serious underlying medical illness. Pain gets worse or lasts for more than 10 days.

hey, I would stick with the broths because beans will cause gass and I’m not sure if tht is good for you. but how many excedrin did you take?
also I’m not sure if I’m late on this one…I was googling stuff and I’m not sure how old this board is

I overdosed on Excedrin two days ago. I took 14 multi strength pills. I took them at about 2 in the morning on Friday, and went to school that day. I told my friend and she told her mum, whom works at our school, and she told our school counselor. My mum got called in and her and my friend rushed me to the hospital. If I wouldn’t have gone to the hospital, I would have been dead. I was trying to die actually. But they did a bunch of tests on me and I had an IV in my arm for three or four hours. It was the scariest day of my life.

My daughter died as a result of an overdose of excedrin…she took 30 had horrible seizures, bit her tongue and had an obvious brain bleed before anyone could help her. I have to live with the horror of seeing my beautiful 21 year old die this way. What can you do to counteract this or was it something else…I don’t know.

My name is Alex, and I’m 17 years old. I just overdosed on Excedrin (about 20 minutes ago, or so). I took 18 extra strength of those pills. Then I took another four pills (different meds, though). I feel just fine, to be honest. I didn’t try to kill myself nor anything, I just got really upset.

I really really hope you’re alive, there’s always time and a new future in tomorrow, I’m so sorry something happened to you to make you feel this way. I’m praying that you survived. The girl below me learned the hard way that other people’s decisions can greatly effect you but that is no reason to end your entire life. God loves you and I love you and I’ve never even met you. You have to remember you don’t know the whole world, you haven’t met some of the best people the world has to offer. Like I said with the sun rise, different opportunities arise too.

i took a whole bottle of Excedrin monday march 30th at 4.30am. boyfriend had told me he cheated on me with a close friend of mine. i took about 20 Excedrin && 24 norcos. i was all alone on the phone from my mom right after i took them && my mom called an ambulance. if it was for them i would be dead. it was not worth the hours && days of throwing up. i had to drink this black charchol stuff that didnt taste like anything, but the texture of it was disgusting. i was in the hospital for 2 days. non stop throwing up. took a sip of water && it came right back up. felt so gross. i have been out of the hospital now for about 12 hours && its thursday morning 5am. i still feel really sick. was deff not worth it. && the boyfriend of 6 years who cheated on me, didnt even come to the hospital to see me. i now realize that if i were to take my life that night, i would have done it for someone who honestly had no care in the world about me. i had my friends && my family there.

point is.. if your on this website to look up ways to commit suicide, please dont. the problem you are having is temporary, taking your life is forever. think about your friends && your family. they would hurt for sooo long. over what? a boyfriend, work problems, friends, family, money issues. all of those are fixable. your life isnt!! talk to a family member, a friend, or a doctor about your problems before you take issues in your own hand. i know easier said then done huh? i know exactly what your feeling. think twice!! please. God Bless You!<3

Suicide for the reasons you are thinking would end in hell, yes. However, there are few (FEW) reasons in which I personally believe it would not. If someone is here looking up ways to kill themselves… you are not in that situation, please don’t do it to yourself. NEVER consider suicide an option.

My girlfriend overdosed last night…. She only need 2 and she took 3. And that one extra pill had her in pain. Her stomache was killing her, she complained of horrible headaches, and since I can’t drive, all I could do was stay on the phone with her for hours and listen to her cry. I’m warning everyone, don’t ever overdose, even if it’s “just a little”. It has horrible consequences. For everybody.

im on the phone with my bestfriend right now. she had just tried to overdose herself with excedrins. she says she took about ten or more pills. she is shaking, and starting to feel that things around her are getting small. i told her to drink a lot of water, and to make herself throw up. she had explained to me that her boyfriend had just broke up with her. and id like to say thank u to those above who wrote their testimonies about overdosing and encouraging the rest not too. its not a bright idea and it doesnt solve any problems. it just makes matters worst for you to try and commit suicide. once again thank u to those who helped me out tonight because if u guys havent wrote any comments, i would be lost and still think that my bestfriend would be just fine sleeping it out.

I just looked up excedrin overdose because i took 2 more than I should have and now all i am reading is about people who really think killing themselves is the right answer?!?!??! I can assure you Its NOT. If this is your desperate plea for help you are probley on the wrong website. SEEK HELP elsewhere!! You are clearly in need of mental help. God answers prayers….try it!

Im kymber, and im 15 years old. i overdosed on excedrin extra strength two days ago. i only took ten, and overdosed myself. i couldnt see things straight. i felt like my body weighed two hundred pounds. i could not stop throwing up or “using” the bathroon. I felt as if the whole room was spinning. That night i beleived i was dieng. It was the scariest night of my life. Even now when i look at any pill, i feel the need to get sick. Just dont do it.

My name is Cassie, I am 17. I had been overdosing behind my famly’s and friends backs and dying in front of their faces for 6-7 years now. I over dosed on excedrin mixed wth tylenol when I was 14 and on top of this, I was anorexic/bulemic(10 years) so I had nothing on my stomach. I threw up blood, dry heaving, and everything. I felt heavy and floaty, my mind fogged, vision blurered and speech slurred: and i didn’t tell my parents why i was hanging out the car window tat night, throwing up. The room spun, and I felt like I was dying, that as what I wanted. I called my boyfriend and apoogized when I got home, and was scared, but not of dying. I am a cutter(10-11 years), and had fresh wounds. I didn’t tell my “parents” because I was scared of puishment, not help. When I survived that night…I thought about more pills the next week and it made me sick to my stomach. I started again, ignoring the ache. I have liver problems (and more) that are not being tended to. I sadly looked this up because I wanted to know how close to death I was and thought I may want to do it again. I read your story and it reminded me of my story, so I felt like sharing it with you. I am sorry you did that to yourself and I wish you never experienced that.

Awhile back, I was at my friends house. I was a complete dumb ass back then, & was the type of person into smoking, drinking, drugs, stuff like that..I had found out that my recent ex boyfriend was going to ask out one of my good friends. She didn’t know I knew, so I asked if she wanted to pop pills with me. I went downstairs, got her Excedrin. I snorted probably, 2 pills? & took about 10. I was up all night, I couldn’t sleep at all. I felt terrible. I honestly didn’t want that shit. I look back now, & see how dumb I was. I got my boyfriend back, got out of drinking & smoking & drugs. I got my life back, & I recommend that you DO NOT commit suicide. It’s the worst way to leave this world. Don’t end it over anything. It’s not worth it.

If you haven’t got help for her by now, then your puppy is likely dead, but I hope you got her to a vet ASAP. Drugs affect animals differently than they do humans, and even if it were a human overdosing on it, the recommendation would be to get that person to the hospital.

i overdosed on excedrin extra strength 2 nights ago. took more than 10 tablets… had multiple emotional problems and thought that ending my life would be a good idea. it took abt 2 hours before the side effects kicked in. i vomited for hours… dark brownish vomit that looked frothy. my vomit looked like from someone who had a seizure and bubbles coming out of the mouth. i had diarrhea. i was dizzy, my head was throbbing and i was crying nonstop. tried to sleep but i couldn’t. the next morning, i found out my monthly period was delayed for 5 days and i took a preg test. it turned out POSITIVE. now i dont know what to do. i’ve been smoking, drinking, i overdosed on excedrin and im pregnant.

its been almost 48 hours since i overdosed. although i feel better now, i’ve not been to a doctor since. i know i can still go into a coma or have liver damage that will result to death but all i know is, i did what i thought was the only way to make me feel better. i cant say im happy with what i did coz the side effects were not worth it at all, but it happened already. i can only move forward and hope things will be ok.

I just took 14 and my husband doesn’t even care. I hope I die tonight. The world is so sick, and no one believes me that I was raped. No one is ever going to do a thing about it. All I have ahead of me is the dirt above my coffin holding me down like everything else in this life. Fuck life. I don’t even know what living is. I haven’t for three years.

I, unlike most of you, now have something to live for and DO NOT want to end my life. I have the worlds most amazing 4 year old. This might sound stupid, but I dont know if its okay. I have BAD cramps, so I took 3 tylenol, then like and hour and a half later it was still bad so I took another 2. The pain stopped for a bit, but like 2 hours later it came back so I took another 2 or 3, which is usually how I take tylenol. Right after I took the last bit of tylenol, I got into an arugment with co worker and stormed away from my desk. I was fuming. I walked into the kitchen at work, and not thinking about it, grabbed the excedrin bottle and took three because I had a head ache from the screaming match I just got in. Is that okay? Should I seek medical help? I feel fine, just a bit nervous, because I cant beleive I did something that stupid! What a dumb oversight on my part!

And to those our there who are trying to kill themselves with Excedrin, please. I have been to hell and back, and back to hell again. I’ve had terrible things done to me, and still to this day have to endure the pain of those things. having a pitty party and feeling bad about yourself isnt going to help the matter any. Trust me. Pull yourself up, get out there and find a positive distraction, any distraction. Im in a very bad relationship with my husband, and due to financial reasons, I cant get out of it, divorce is SOOOOO expensive. He is a terrible man who has done terrible things to me, and let other people do terrible things to me. I feel into the pity party thing for a bit, but was able to find one, thats it, just one good thing to cling onto and not let go. It doesnt have to be a person, it could be a hobby or a place you like to frequent. Just please, try EVERYTHING

I don’t know anymore. I’m completely aware of the consequences of committing suicide, but it seems like it’s the only thing that can save me. I find myself crying everyday and nearly everywhere I go. I’m turning 17 in three days and suicide is the last thing I want. I know this isn’t a pity group..but I’m desperate. Everything I am and everything I do is a mistake. Please don’t lecture me on the suicide- is-not-an-option idea, and don’t tell me you know what it’s like living in my shoes. My question is, what do you do if there’s nothing left? If excedrin really isn’t worth it, then what?

Everyone, your stories were all so nice to read. I am glad, and hope, that so many of you were able to live and keep trying. However, I hope that I don’t make it through this. I just took about eight or nine excedrin, I don’t know, I didn’t count. I’m tired of everything I’ve gone through. People continue to make life seem great, but it’s never that great, life is terrible & the world is cruel. There is no God, if there was, he would’ve stopped me, wouldn’t he? It does not matter anymore. I love many people, and hope that they never forget the fun we had, because now I am on the last adventure I’ll ever take.

wow…. Your alll IDIOTS!!!! Jeez it’s bad enough to want to die, but do you think you should also feel the most unbearable pain through it all?!?! Try something a lttle less painful, trust me, once this is in ur system u’ll wish you had cut ur throat or maybe pissed off a cop, or jumped from a building. OD on something like pain killers cause headache meds won’t do nothin, I took 6 today and just wanted to make sure I’m ok, but all yall gotta buck up, keep them chins high, cause people love to kick you while ur down, and once you take enough excedrin you’ll be on the ground, a real good target for willing feet. And to people who don’t like you, diss you, or even beat you, there’s other ways to handle that (can you say ‘he did it’?) all I’m sayin is suicide is stupid, do what I do, smoke some weed and drink a four loco, chill with friends (real friends) and find people you like being around. And smile :)

a few days ago on friday the 4th i was really upset so i took 8 excederin pills and drank half a bottle of wine along with 2 blunts of weed… I went to the ER. All i have to say is if you’re thinking about overdosing just call the hospital and go to a psychiatric center. I’ve been there before and it actually turned my whole life around. the pains in my stomach are so bad i can’t even lay down without feeling discomfort. when i heal i’m going to be so thankful and never taking more than a normal dose of pills!

I overdosed on excedrine last year on the night of valintine’s day. I’ve had an eating disorder for six years and just can’t et over it. My mum and I had gotten into a big ultrication about the fact she felt that tI didn’t want to get better. To spite her, I went out to McDonalds and ordered a double hceeseburger and fries, then bought a pint of icecream. I went home and ate it all then made some pancakes. I went up to my mom and told her “see, I ate all this shit… I do want to get better”, but she wouldn’t have it and was still screaming and crying hysterically, becuase she knew that things weren’t getting better- that she was losing her daughter.

So I looked on my dad’s desk andd found a bottle of excedrin… took 24 pills. I felt fine at firt then started getting a little weaker an hour later. I went to bed around 2 am, and owke up once, tried to stand, but fell over. I don’t know how I got back into my bed, but somehow I did, a sweaty mess. Around 6 am, I woke up and began puking my guts out. This was the most miserable vomiting, too… it was like black coffee grounds and just wouldn’t let up. I also nearly shat my brains out.

For the next three days, I was sick, non-stop, and really just wanted to go back and NOT have taken the pills. The night I took the pills, things strted fuzzing out on me, and I prayed to God not to let this be the end. Eventually, I got better, but still have residual effects that make life very difficult, due to the overdose. I’m only 18, never drank in my life, but have a permanently damaged liver becuase of this. I wish I could take this back. Please, if you’re thinking that your life is bad now, it’s only going to get worse by taking excedrine to die.

I think u will be ok. I took 3 in 3hours cuz my head would not stop hurting. Had diarrhea, cramping, hot flashes, and nausea. Still feel kinda yucky but think it is going away. Good luck with that tooth man!

I took about 20 at one time, and immediately started feeling sick. For a few hours I was clutching my stomach in pure agonizing pain. After a while, I tried to eat to settle my stomach. It helped a bit, but not much. I finally realized that I needed to get this crap out of my body. I didn’t want to go to a hospital before trying to help myself at home, so I looked for some charcoal to make myself vomit it up. When I couldn’t find any, I decided to just do it like an bulimic. I had to throw up about five times minimum (I didn’t count) to get it all out.

This was one of THE most painful experiences of my life. I wanted to try to get numb, but it did NOT help me in anyway. I’m just lucky I didn’t have any immediate serious problems. Then again, you never know if you’ll have any long term problems later. I suggest being EXTREMELY careful to not make the mistake I made.

My name is maggie.. I’m goin thru hard times in my life right now. I’m 21 yrs old with a 2yr old son who is not easy to take care of at all. I went thru hell when I was pregnant of him. Doing it on my own wasn’t eay. Me and my babyfather been together for 3yrs on and off. We also been thru a lot. Now I’m 4 months pregnant with twin and going thru this pregnancy all alone again. Its jus soo stressful. I don’t think I can do it again on my own. I’m currently working a partime job but soon enough ima be jobless. That’s jus another thing stressing me out! How am I guna support my kids?? This may sound very messed up but the only thing I had in mind wen I found out I was pregnant was ABORTION… But babydaddy convinced me to keep it and now I’m alone again. He left me because he saids I’m too controlling in this pregnancy. I don’t agree wit him. I jus feel that he’s guna have 3 kids so grow up and put a stop to chillen and smoking weed!! I think I have every rights to be demanding on that note! Soo he jus told me he wants to be alone. I begged not to let me go this pregnancy alone but like always he thinks for himself. Soo I feel like I had enough wit the stress in life. Broken hearts really hurt. I wrote my goodbye letter 2 my mom and I have 30 pills in front of me. I don’t wana feel pain anymore. I was curvious to no wat happens if i take 30 pills. Now I jus got one thing to say… I’m thankful for this website. Its sad to read other ppls stories. I wish too feel no pain and the only solution wuld be suicide but reading all this jus shows how much more in pain I’m guna be in after drinking 30 pills. Idk man life jus sucks!!

Well he has three counts of child support to pay and if he doesn’t he’ll go to jail. I hope that’s at least a little comforting..

I’ve been trying to OD on APAP for a week now. No luck. Over 100 pills. My love just keeps playing with my emotions. He loves me, he hates me. I have jail time coming for violating probation from a DUI, and can’t live with that. My family can’t stand me, and feeds my pain. How can I just end it? Why can’t I just go?

Serve your time and move away from your family and start a new life. Killing yourself is not the answer.
Don’t allow yourself to love someone that wants to just play with your emotions.
Find a new man….

I took 13 pills within an hour, my mom made me throw it up. She didn’t want me to go to The hospital because she said they’ll throw me in the nut house. So I tried to sleep on it last night but couldn’t. There is this really low tone ringing in my ear, and can’t stop going to the restroom. Body is shaking, but will the ringing in my ear go away? Help me.

Maybe some ppl want to od on excedrin bot bc they want to die in their sleep but bc they want to die but also experience the pain theyve caused another person. not saying its something good to do but just thinking some ppl might read these comments to see wut kind of pain and effects they can get from oding on it instead of using it to change their minds like others have commented on here

So stupidly I took four excedrine migraine in a 10- 12 hour period. 2 in the am and the. Another 2 at night. Didn’t read the bottle as I should have! Should I be worried? I googled what could happen and reading all of these and other sites have made me a little paranoid and nervous! -_-

So as I feel these stabbing pains in my head, I took 2 of these great pills, I take 2 pills for all of my pain. Pretty much make the pain go away for a few, I deal with 4 broken teeth so I’m in pain alot through the day cause it only subsides the pain for a little bit although the bottle says dont take anymore then 2 in 24 hours today is different, I cant afford to get my Son anything for christmas because my business is not picking up due to this fu*cked up economy, Thanks to this damn new prsident in office Obama screwing us over. I know right place your blame on others, well thats why iv desided to take the whole bottle of pills I dont know how manys in there thought counting was a waste of time, even though my favorte song is on its like i cant even understand it i feel like im typing super fast, and all i feel is tired

Did God not create you? Why would he forsake his children? God loves you when no one else does! I ask that you try prayer just one time! I promise you God will show you what you have been missing in life! I pray that you find yourself and whatever it is your looking for!

I am a seventeen year old in high school. At night on December 5th 2011, I took about fourteen to seventeen pills of excedrin becuase I have been going through a rough spot emotionally, and my mentality isn’t that great. (Just thinking about it makes me want to hurl) I have yet to tell my parents, really I am afraid of what they will say and think. I spent all night throwing up, and when nothing was left in my stomach, I dry heaved and the bile in my stomach was all that would come up, burning my throat. I continued to dry heave for ten hours. Needless to say I have yet to get any sleep, afraid I might not wake up. My sides hurt, probably my liver, and my throat is raw. My parents believe I have come down with the flu or some other bug that is going around.

I really wish I would have read all these stories a couple days ago, then maybe I would have changed my mind about wishing for death to come. Death is not the answer at all, but sometimes I have to say that it seems like a better idea than dealing with all the bullshit of the world. However I think I will tell my parents about my attempt in the morning, asking them to take me to a doctor or even to the hospital even though its been about a day now since I took the pills. The damage is probably still there and will probably remain for some time.

I have no faith in god, nor do I wish to, I am and will forever be Pegan. I always wish that there was more in life, like antoehr world or magic or something like that, and with that going through my mind and all the depression, it really made me messed up. Now I really know it was a horrible idea, and I hope to be able to help others choose life instead of death.

Thank you for all your stories, they have saved a life and will continue to save more.

God can only do so much for you when you believe in others. The feeling of utter isolation can over power love or feeling of joy. It really all depends how much faith you are willing to put in a character that may or may not exist. If friends and family are against you, then how can gods love save you?

Yea. I took about 30 excedrin pm after drinking about a 12 pack of beer. Idk wtf I was thinking I his been goin thru alot shit my gf of 4 years walked out on me taking our 5 month old son and moving in with a different man…. Guess I was jus wanting to c if neone cared or not. But I don’t recommend anyone try and od on excedrine it was not fun at all. I’m glad I didn’t die because I found a wonderful woman that treats me good and I have joint custody of my baby boy. Just push through the hard things because better will come too y’all.

i am thinking about commiting suicide today. i am so scared and all this mess i’m in is my fault. i just don’t want to be me anymore. I can’t do it any longer. i was thinking of taking excedrin. i have enough. i’. just really scared. i don;t want to die, but i don’t see any other way out of my mess.
i prayed but i think God has given up on me and He feels like if I didn’t try, He is tired of trying too. I can’t let my family down again. They are the only people I have left in this world, but I don’t think I could go home and disappoint them again. I don’t have anyone else to talk to or call. and I know this whole situation is so stupid but i am just so sad and I can’t see anyway to fix me, to fix this mess. If i do succeed and die. If my parents and brother ever find this, I love you guys so much. I always loved you guys and when I tried to do things right, I did it for you. I just am sorry. so sorry. I’m not afraid of the pain, I guess I’m just afraid to go to hell. If I could turn back time i’d do everything different, I’d listen, and I’d be a better person.

Wow… I took 4 with 10-12 hours because I forgot that I took 2 last night & I read these and makes me feel so bad for some people. In 2007 my dad died.. my boyfriend who was my first was the paul bearer cheated on me a few weeks later.. my mom had men spending the night within 3 months of my dad dying and I was so depressed but I never thought about killing myself! I got pregnant at the end of that year and now have my little girl who is 3 years old and life is better. Its not perfect but then nothing is ever Perfect. Noone should kill themselves, ever!!! You have to do something to change things but no overdose. At least try to make things better. There are people out there that want to help you. I wish I could help the people who write these about overdosing! Hope this even changes one persons mind……

I’m 18 years old. Last week after a long and stressful weekend I decided to take and excedrin overdose, I wasn’t suicidal at all, things just built up and got to me. I took over 20 tablets along with a couple of maxolons to prevent immeadiate vomiting. I passed out roughly a half an hour later after cutting my arm. The night that I did this has become the biggest regret of my life, I have done serious damage to my body and especially my liver. I just wish that people would read this and know that taking an overdose is not an easy way out. It is extremely painful. During the days following I faced vomiting up blood, nosebleeds and my ears would not stop ringing! I felt heavy yet at the same time as light as air. Please reconsider a deliberate overdose of excedrin, I wish I had have been warned what it would be like!
