What Can Ibuprofen Overdose Do To You?

May 26th, 2013 by | Category: Medicine

Note: If you are overdose on ibuprofen or any other medicine/drug call the emergency now!

Ibuprofen takes away any pain, cramps etc and one sleep better. It is great pain relief, for all different kinds of pains, specially headache and migrane. Therefore it’s used big time. And ever since it’s become available over-the-counter, Ibuprofen Overdose has become a common phenomenon. If you or anyone you know have taken Ibuprofen overdose and everything feels fit and okay, you still need to go and see a doctor. The symptoms may not show right now but the overdose may show signs in the long run.

Consequences of Ibuprofen overdose: According to research institutes, Ibuprofen overdose damages your internal organs like liver. While in some cases it has been reported that it has result in a permanent liver damage, in other cases where the victim was taking the dose for a long and continued period it has resulted in organ failure one by one.

Some more side effects are unsteadiness, blurred vision, ringing in the ears, gastrointestinal, nausea plus vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain, probable loss of blood in intestinal areas or stomach or both, headache, agitation, drowsiness, incoherence and confusion etc. Sometimes more serious symptoms are also noticed in some victims though very rare such as seizure, gastrointestinal bleeding, metabolic acidosis, respiratory depression, hyperkalaemia, tachycardia, atrial fibrillation, coma, hepatic dysfunction, renal failure, cyanosis, and cardiac arrest etc. Until and unless the victim is allergic to ibuprofen, there is a slim chance that the victim would die from Ibuprofen Overdose.

Ibuprofen Overdose can cause stinking vomiting, profuse sweating, severe abdominal pain, and can land you straight in the mental hospital for attempted suicide, where you may be medicated with things like liquid carbon or charcoal. Charcoal has the ability to absorb the drug before it can enter the systemic circulation. Another form of treatment to fight Ibuprofen overdose is gastric lavage which is not very popular, but is considered if the intake is potentially life threatening. This treatment can be performed within 60 minutes of ingestion of Ibuprofen.

Below 100 mg/kg toxic effects of Ibuprofen are less likely. But doses above 400 mg/kg are considered an overdose and can result into any of the above consequences. It is not possible to determine a precise dose that crosses the danger line as it varies from person to person depending upon his/her weight, age and medical record of the individual patient.

I agree with Chris S. on that one… SAM AND STEVE no offence, but you either got some serious “story telling” skills or you just want attention! First of all: who takes 40 ibuprofen that ISN’T trying to kill themselves… and Second of all, if that were true and you did take 40 ibuprofens, or 20 and some day quill, night quill or what the fuck ever else YOU WOULD NOT BE ALIVE TO TALK ABOUT IT!!!! Unless you got to the hospital within MINUTES of taking all of that and had your stomach pumped. If you took HALF that amount of ibuprofen you would die. why would you even brag about it either… how would you feel if some young kid or teenager came on here and read that and decided to experiment and took that amount of drugs and died!! GROW UP, both of you and drop the fucking act!!

Actually, you’re wrong. Ibuprofen won’t kill you.
When I was younger my mother died and I was suicidal and tried to kill myself several times with Ibuprofen and it does not work.
Tylenol does not do it either, I don’t know about Nyquil and Dayquil though, so actually you two are wrong.
They probably did take them and are still alive.

actually you are wrong, if you are allergic to ibuprofen it can have seious side affects and it can kill you. found out I was allergic the hard way.

2010-06-24 11:42:44

Well, i agree on pam because if you have an allergic reaction to a certain drug and can cause more damage. I took(NOT a lie, also NOT bragging) about 27 ibuprofen today, and nothing happened. Yes it was a suicide attempt. It also depends on the mg/kg of any drug you take

Comment by Rachel
2010-07-18 14:18:08

Ibeprofin can kill you over time, and mixing it with other medicines could kill someone (depending) but taking such doses probably won’t kill you. I don’t agree with the second person who said “nothing” happened though. Something is going to hurt now or later if you take that much, especially if it’s mixed. I don’t know why you would take all of that “just because” though.

Tyler: I hope that you receive/received some help. I was suicidal once too but was given the opportunity to see what was waiting for me in the future. I hope that you realize things don’t always stay the same. You’re alive for a reason, so don’t take away that reason. You might not see it not but that means it hasn’t happened yet, so hang in there.

Wow, what a whole bunch of idiots.

Rachel is the only one who is correct here.

You don’t die IMMEDIATELY from ODing on ibuprofen. The liver and kidneys don’t just stop completely and you don’t just drop dead like you might from a narcotic overdose.

If you actually did take 40 ibuprofens, you’ve undoubtedly caused severe damage inside you.. I’m sure you most certainly bled out your bottom as well.

Ibuprofen thins the blood. This is why they say you can’t take it the day before surgery, even though this drug can affect you clotting factors for up to three months.

Let me emphasize the author here: “Below 100 mg/kg toxic effects of Ibuprofen are less likely. But doses above 400 mg/kg are considered an overdose and can result into any of the above consequences. It is not possible to determine a precise dose that crosses the danger line as it varies from person to person depending upon his/her weight, age and medical record of the individual patient.”

Do the math. I’m 125 pounds, for example. Divide that by 2.2 to get my weight in kilograms. I am approximately 56.8 kilograms.

Multiply that by 100 to get the dosage that would be harmful to me – 5600.81 kg

Let’s convert that to milligrams. 5600.81kg x 1000 = 5,600,810 milligrams. Divide that by 200 since each tab is 200mg each. You get 28004.05. Round it up if you feel like it.

28004.05. That’s how many IBUPROFEN TABS IT WOULD TAKE TO KILL ME. Yes, the caps are necessary. The information is written right there in the google article.

If you actually try to kill yourself by taking ibuprofen, you’re one of the biggest idiots in the world.. You will suffer blood loss and liver and kidneys will shut down.. a horrible and painful death that ISN’T EVEN CLOSE TO IMMEDIATE.

– Liz (the nurse)

Funny how I wrote this and I’ve had three glasses of wine. I don’t know why I’m even wasting my time with you morons. DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE MAKING A COMPLETE IDIOT OUT OF YOURSELVES.

Stop pretending you know shit. Wanna kill yourself? Look up the med and do the calculations. It’s better to use something like a narcotic that will quickly put you into respiratory distress (you won’t know it, you’ll ‘fall asleep.’)

Did I really just waste 10 minutes of my life on this? Wow. I hope someone learns something from this.. I mean COME ON. Ugh, I hate reading some of the responses here. Makes me wonder how old you people are.. I don’t think I want to know.

2010-09-09 19:37:29

Wow, looks like I added the words ‘severe damage’ in there by accident.. here: ‘If you actually did take 40 ibuprofens, you’ve undoubtedly caused severe damage inside you.. I’m sure you most certainly bled out your bottom as well.’

It depends on your sex, weight, age, etc, etc. 40 ibuprophens will likely make you experience SOME side effect. That is what I MEANT. Lol.

I blame the wine. I still know my stuff and it’s not like I am working today. Hahaha.

2010-09-09 21:32:16

Rofl. I think you are the one that needs to check up on your math, Liz. 5600 kg, or 28004 tablets, is 5 metric tonnes. That’s around the weight of a midsize sedan.

The correct amount you’d need to take is 100 mg / kg, so if you weight 56 kg that’d be 5600 mg, or around 28 tablets.

Comment by Liz
2010-09-10 08:31:24

LOL, you’re absolutely right, Molly.

I was completely angry at the whole world last night and lost my mind. I’m pretty sure I’d be dead long before I consumed my whole car (in ibuprofen form).

Wow, this is why drinking is bad, kids.. Imagine how many people I might accidentally kill if I went to work drunk..

Dear Whoever, if you can’t imagine committing suicide think of yourself as very fortunate as well as not very informed about the sad % of peoplewho attempt to do so. I believe the best book out recently is The Noon Day Demon excellent writing but very dense.prepare yourself for an in dept self courseon those in the world that have thoughts and emotional & physical conditions that you can hardlyimagine. It’s a long read but well worth it if your serious about beginning to understand the world of tragic & desperate souls

You are very lucky if your world has not imploded several times and you just do not want to exist any more – you feel worthless as a person, unwanted, unloved and a drain on the people around you – people always put you down and tell you you are worthless – that is why I tried to kill myself by taking 150 ibuprofen and ended up in hospital for three days!!!!! Don’t mock what you don’t know:)

People like you should be caged and tortured for giving out this false information that will get ignorant people killed. I wish I knew where you’d live so I can throw your ass in jail till you are old and withered… and I’d feed massive doses of ibuprofen to you in your meal without even knowing it just for the hell of it…

How about not talking about “how many” you’ve taken of something? MG would be more useful. 10 years ago
“motrin” was Rx only. Two sizes 500 and 1000 Mg. OTC it is usually 200 mg. Nobody freaked out if you took 2
of the 1000 mg Motrin, it was prescribed to me as 1 or 2 as needed for pain, not to exceed 4 total per day so I
don’t worry too much about taking 8 along with my two vicoprofen. And 8 more with my 2 Vico later on. Dark chocolate makes the whole thing work better but I don’t know why.

Comment by ThunderSoul
2010-10-10 15:23:19

Your math is wrong.
100mg / kg would mean you need 5680mg to pass the 100mg/kg mark. Which means 5.68g of ibuprofen. So 5680mg / 200mg ~= 28 200mg ibuprofen capsules, it won’t take you 28k capsules. You’re pretty incompetent for a nurse… if you even are one…

Your calculations are correct re: how many tabs one would have to take in order to kill themselves immediately with ibu.

What disturbs me is your obvious lack of compassion for all these “idiots” who want to end their lives. I’m shocked that a nurse would encourage anyone with suicidal ideation to find a better drug to get the job done. Thanks, at least, for not posting a list for them.

Depression is a very serious illness that takes tens of thousands of lives each year. I read somewhere that someone commits suicide every 6 minutes. Not positive of the veracity of that last stat.

These people obviously need help. The least we can do in a format such as this is to encourage all suicide attemptees to seek medical help ASAP while being compassionate and concerned.

So, dear ones who are trying to kill yourselves, please tell someone who feels safe to you right away about how you
are feeling. Have them drive you to an emergency room right away. Your lives are more valuable than you can possibly fathom right now. I know this pain and I’ve made serious attempts. Thank goodness I was unsuccessful. We can and do get better. Be gentle w/ your precious selves…
and AGAIN, tell someone and get help right away.

If you have no one safe to talk to, just google “suicide help” and you will get phone numbers for lots of suicide hotlines. No one on the end of that phone will judge you. They only want to help.

Please be gentle with yourselves. Please get help.

I think I need to correct you on your calculations.

400mg/kg is toxic.

So if you weigh 125lbs (about 57Kg) a lethal dose will be in the range of 400mg ibuprofen/Kg body wieght * 57kg body weight = 22800mg of ibuprofen.

22800mg ibuprofen *200mg/pill = 114 pills.

It would not take 28,000 pills to kill you. It would take somewhere in the ballpark of 114.

Comment by Ali
2010-10-22 12:10:41

edit: 22800mg ibuprofen / 200mg/pill = 114 pills.

Dimensional analysis mistake. Numbers are the same, just insert a division sign rather than multiplication

This is to Liz.
What you said may be partically true, and yes you might have a point to prove, but some of your comment is hurtful to other. Do you know what it even feels like to be suisidal? To feel like you dont belong in this world and no one cares about you and the only thing that you can do is to take your own life? My dear friend took his own life just two years ago because he was bullied to a point that he didnt want to live anymore. He had just turned 18 three days before. These people that say they took an obsurd amount of pills are not morons. Maybe they just feel the need to escape for a little while. Sometimes you are in a state where you dont care how much it is going to hurt- you do something crazy just to escape life for even just a moment. Your statistics were good and the math you did DID proove a point, but just because someone might be suisidal, and is “crazy” enough to take 40 pills, doesnt mean they are a moron.
When you lose someone to suiside, or even feel suisidal yourself, your point of view on this matter of overdose, or just suiside in general completly changes.
So Liz, if you ever feel suisidal, or you lose someone that was dear to you to suiside, come back to this page and re-read what you wrote. I think you might start to feel differently about those last four paragraphs in your comment.

Tyler, I did something similar when I was 21 and thought about it a lot for another 12 years going up and down with depression. 4 yrs ago I found anti-d.’s and another med that work. I have a life AND a future now!!
Getting good help is the key to breaking free from the dark.
Good luck!

so taking like 20 ibuprofen 800MG won’t kill you???

Comment by Frank
2010-08-16 00:18:40

800 mg of Ibuprofen is a prescribed dosage by a doctor for uncommon pain relief. You can also take 4 200 mg pills of the OTC medication, but I am not sure it will work the same. I know that 800 mg works very well for dentalgia and chronic back pain. It is hard on your stomach, so if you have GERDS, ulcer, diaphragmatic hernia, anything dealing with your digestic tract, you might want to think about taking tylenol instead. You can take a max of 4000g/day but in increments of 1000 or 1500 mg each 6 hours. or as recommended by your physician.

2010-08-23 15:02:59

Tylenol does kill you. I was in a coma for 2 days from a Tylenol OD. They found me near death and told my husband to prepare for brain damage or that I would die before I could get a new liver. I was lucky and lived. So think again.

Ibuprofen CAN kill you. Read my comment in all bold above this one somewhere. Do the math before saying stupid things like that that are not true! It’s RIGHT THERE in the article! 100mg/kg body weight.

Again, I need to stop wasting my time.

But seriously people.. UGH.

You are wrong about tylenol. I worked at a hospital and a girl came in the took a bunch of tylenol. They did the charcoal and that nite she appeared fine but by the time I came in the next day she had died. They said too much time had passed and that the charcoal did no good and she went into liver failure. Don’t ever think tylenol can’t kill you, I saw it happen. And she was only about 19.

Hello, my name is Lila. Im 15 and i have overdosed 5 times on ibuprofen and other meds…the first time was only 25 pills, made me sick but nothing bad. the second time i took 40, more sick than before, third time i took 80, passed out and didnt remember anything but i didnt die, fourth time i pushed to the limit and took 290…..I was rushed to the hospital where i got my stomach pumped and was put in a mental hospital for attempting suicide which is exactly what i was trying…. just last week i overdosed agian on only 70, it had been over a year since my last one so i tripped out more than i was before….im still alive and well… and yes its true…everyones body can handle different amounts of meds… so yes what might kill one person will not even harm anothers

Hey Wrestler119,
I agree with u, and I was always the one telling this to everyone and being the strong one, but they finally broke me (my parents and their problems), I don’t know what to do, but overdose sounds like a good idea right now I don’t want to die, because I will be setting a bad example for my siblings, but I can’t take this anymore, I have had to take care of my family (emotionally) since I was five I lost my childhood. And now I am diagnosed with a Stomatization disorder meaning I am in pain all the time but there is no cure, I had always been strong focusing on the good but the bad caught up with me. Please can u help me?

I’d like to share a poem, that I wrote a while back, it has helped me realize the truth, even when it felt like I was spiraling downward.

The Unknown – A Journey
by Poizhan

I only wish you could
See things through
The clarity of my mind
At this point in time.

I know that everything will
Be alright in the end
I don’t fear death
As much as I once did.

I feel like I’ve kissed it
And felt its warm embrace
It is so comforting
I could swear I heard a voice.

A sweet lovely voice that said
Life is the ultimate journey
You travel the world
And through this gain much.

Becoming full of knowledge
While gaining wisdom
And growing spiritually
Realizing your dreams.

Life is also the long journey home
Wrought with the perils and
Nightmares awaiting only in the
Darkest corners of one’s imagination.

Death is the moment you realize that
You never left home at all and when you
Look around you, you begin to understand
That all you were ever looking for was yourself.

Now…That really doesn’t matter,
You’ve transcended the trivial needs and wants
Of human existence…
And death wraps you in that knowledge.

That pain, both mental and physical
Are both part of the journey
That makes the return home
All the more worthwhile.

And now that you are home, safe…
In your warm blanket nothing can hurt you,
You are so safe…so warm…so at peace,
And ready to be born anew.

With the full knowledge that…
Life is the journey we all choose to make.
Without knowing the good and the bad…
How could we ever choose to make it?

lives … but nothing that bad ever

don’t feel like i have a right
to be this selfish.
the only reason i’m not

I am not sure of I have stumbled upon an adolescent/teen site or not.
I am a Psychologist (I have a Ph.D) and am doing some research in
relation to some of my patients with co-morbidities (i.e. kidney failure
and bipolar disorder). It angers me to a great extent to see you children
on this site complaining about pain and committing suicide to “take away
the pain”. I am going to slip out of my “Dr. Suit” and tell you a few little
things. First off, what do you know about pain? I know I will get many
canned responses, such as, “I raised my family” or “I was sexually molested”.
I do feel sorry for the individuals that this has happened to, but come now, I
am sure this is not the cases for 99% of you. You are just angst-riddled teen-
agers who needs to channel their creativity and energy into something more
positive. Try painting or simply writing in a journal. If you have physical pain,
which I do not see most of you having unless you have a birth defect, then
see a pain management physician who specializes in pediatrics. Yes, you are
a pediatric patient until you are over the age of 18. If you are “pained”
emotionally, see a counselor. You do not even have to see a Psychiatrist or
a Psychologist, such as myself, you can simply talk to your school counselor.
That is actually what I was before I became an Addictions Specialist. Now, for
personal experience. I was in a car accident on the way to my Senior Prom. I
am only in my 30′s, so it was only back in the 90′s. I had back surgery before
my 27th birthday. My neurosurgeon removed 2 of my own discs, replaced
them with cadaver discs (dead people’s discs, to put it in your terms), he then
placed a rod on either side of my spine (2 rods total), each one was over a foot
long, drove 6 screws into my vertebrae to stabilize them, then to finish it off,
he put a caging device round it all and a plate on a part of it. Let’s talk about
pain. I live in it everyday. I do not take painkillers as I am on a double
transplant list (kidney and liver) due to childhood illnesses and I cannot have
anything that is in the medicine (i.e. acetaminophen or Ibuprofen). I
periodically have to go on dialysis and that’s not fun. 6 hours in a chair x 3
times a week. I could be depressed if I wanted to and I was when I was in
junior high and high school. I thought – this isn’t fair, why me?! But you know
what? I rechanneled that rage and went to college. i was originally a pre-med
major to be a Trauma Surgeon, but I couldn’t be on my feet that long because
of my back, so I switched my major to Psychology. I was accepted to all of my
top pick colleges and had several scholarships that paid for everything with
some left over for pocket money every month. I even had 1 scholarship that
paid just for my books every semester – that one was from band/orchestra -
and I got it playing Beethoven on the saxophone! No easy thing to do with
no piano accompianist! It only took me 8 years to get my Doctorate (Ph.D)
and I haven’t looked back. Now, I help others who have a wide array of
addictions, from painkillers, heroin, alcohol up to Internet addiction and even
gambling addiction. I even have 2 sex addicts in therapy. In closing, life has
too much to offer. If you are considering suicide, then you are just a coward
in my book, afraid of life and what it has to offer. It offered me a great career,
a wonderful, loving husband and two beautiful children. I challenge you to
step up to the plate and not be a coward.

Emerson once wrote: “There is no reason for suicide. Suicide is reason
enough”. It means suicide is senseless. If you commit the act, then there
is nothing more to it. Close the book, no more chapters to go.

Thank you!!

Your blog really spoke to me!

I have been through alot in my life, both parents mental illness,
physical and mental heath problems myself. Sexual abuse, then found out i couldn’t have children. No money ect ect…

But i decided to return to study and i’m studying to be a nurse
and life is not easy but it’s worth having.

Life is a challenge, it’s not the movies!
So many people i know have bought into the whole thing that life can be perfect and i can have everything, it’s a lie. Life is an upward struggle, and the best things are the things you work for. The best times are in the midst of the pain because you choose to see them and be thankful for them despite of the bad or difficult things that are happening.

Love to all because the truth is that love never fails.

And to everyone who is talking about taking this or that!!!
every action has an opposite an equal reaction. Meaning don’t be fooled you are damaging your body whether it hits you now or in 10 years when you have grown to enjoy life (hopefully your still alive) then the damage will have been done. There is no turning back then, and trust me you do not want that. no matter how much pain you have there is always a way, always. Find someone to help you, to truly love you, it’s not easy but it’s worth the wait and the energy. And when i say love i mean real love not lust ect. friendship love i.e. trust, honesty, kindness, willing to put you first and you doing the same ect. :)

Dr. D

How dare you call someone considering suicide a coward!

You are a self-righteous hack as far as I am concerned. I feel sorry for your patients.

PhD. or not – you don’t seem to have a grasp of what suffering from a mental illness is like.

True, there are plenty of people (especially teenagers) who think breaking up with their boyfriend/girlfriend is reason enough to end it all.

But, I have suffered with severe clinical depression for as long as I can remember. I was cutting myself as early as 12. I’ve been hospitalized 4 times.

I’ve been diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder and Borderline Personality Disorder – of course, I didn’t know all that when I was just a teenager.

In fact, as a teenager, my parents were told I was just seeking attention. Bullshit – I was trying desperately to live…to get help.

Some of the people on this site might be wondering how many pills can I take without killing myself, but enough to show my parents, my doctors, someone that I’m in pain. Sometimes “acting out” in this way is the only way adults will take teenagers seriously. Case in point – YOU.

Do not dare call me a coward. I have been fighting to stay alive and live since I was a child.

I fought my way though school earning a BA degree – even had to take a semester off after I overdosed on acetaminophen and was subsequently hospitalized.

I tried working for years until a situation at work caused me to have a mental breakdown. I’m now on disability.

The likelihood of my life ending in suicide is high. Of course, I would rather be happy and die of old age. Suicide isn’t always a choice. For those with mental illness, suicide is often carried out during the depths of a depressive episode – when thoughts are not coherent.

As I’ve described a snippet of my life story, remember it started as a child – 12, 13 years old.

Do NOT dismiss children and teenagers!!

To Teens & other depressed folks,

For those teens who may be wondering what happens when you take too much over the counter meds… I used to take 10 to 15 at a time. Once I became so sick I threw up while driving! I took 20 Tylonel and told my mom. My stomach was pumped in the ER and I was hospitalized. My sister had a friend who took a bottle of Tylonel along with alcohol. She woke up to find she’d been vomiting blood. She ended up needing a liver transplant (and was lucky to get one). Over dosing is dangerous.

If you are depressed and need help, this is what you must say to an adult. Do not just say you are depressed or you will be dismissed like Dr. D just did. Tell your guidance counselor or your doctor that you are depressed and have thoughts of hurting or killing yourself. This statement can not be dismissed – action must be taken.

It’s scary. There are times you will regret your decision to ask for help. But you really have no other option. If you suffer from depression, you need help. You deserve help.

Visit NAMI.org
They’re on Facebook too.

It isn’t easy, but you are not alone.

I stumbled across this website and your advice is the first sensible thing I’ve read.

***If you are thinking of commiting suicide or acting out in any way then you need to go to your local doctor and tell them “I have suicidal thoughts and tendencies – I am in danger of killing myself – I need help”, and then don’t leave the practice until the both of you have discussed and taken definitive steps towards helping you.***

I cannot imagine a psychologist, namely Dr D, being in any way successful with such an inflated sense of self-importance. Dr D is clearly using this site to feel better about him/herself rather than genuinely helping anyone. I would very much doubt the qualifications of any doctor who needs to tell you they have a PhD. It’s important to offer advice in conjunction with trying to listen to how the other person feels, rather than offering advice which invalidates their experience of pain. Each person’s reaction to unpleasant/painful stimuli is unique, and therefore each person’s decision to take their life is also a very personal one. It is of little help to say “I’m in more pain than you”, when perhaps you are better at coping with physical and emotional pain than someone younger or less schooled than you are.

Robert Frost once said “The saddest thing in life is that the best thing in it should be courage”. The courage to live for tomorrow, a tomorrow blessed by those we love and who love us xxx

i agree. i came on this site for help and
his sa on people … teens being
self absorbed just made me
feel crap about myself.

i permanently want to die at the
moment and its not just teenage

i now see a councellor and although
it initially made everything worse
i feel like i will be able to leave
this chapter of my life in the past
one day.

if your reading this then please trust
me when i say that asking for
help will relieve you of some tension.

when you overdose or hurt yourself
in another way you are releasing pressure
and that is very important.
a councellor will not tell you to stop.

they will just try and help you
to find another path. it is sooo scary

That is the biggest load of crap. Why do you think the whole reason to end your life is in the first place to avoid it. Its more cowardly to end your life and run away from what life has to throw at you. If you believe that shit, then maybe you should do the rest of a favour and kill your sad self.

Are you really going to tell someone who is commenting on a page about overdosing on pills to go kill themself? You are beyond ridiculous. Imagine if they actually go do it, and it was all set off by your thoughtless rude comment. It would be on you for saying that.

have u ever been so distraught that the only way u think u can get some sort of peace is by not existing anymore?? Have u ever been in a state that u hate ur self so much because it seems wat ever u do is just not enough??
People dont want to kill themselves to avoid living its because sometimes living is more of a chore than a desire. I wish i could wake up ever day and be my cheerful self but that not the case. I keep getting told wat i should and shouldnt be doing with my life and how i should and shouldnt act. How about shutting the hell up Dave because when someone is about to kill themselves it actually takes more courage than to battle on. Imagine sitting there ready to cut ur wrist u think someone without courage could do that?? People are writing on this page and hopefully others can help them. I dont think we need heartless people like u adding in ur 2 cents cos lets face its not wanted!!

Actually, Dr. D is right. He’s telling it like it is. He didn’t say ALL who do that are asking for attention or don’t suffer from a mental illness, but it’s true that a huge number create those illnesses and actions themselves. They need to stop living in the “I have a mental illness” and “I hate my life” state, because truly that is what determines whether you are going to self hard or commit suicide yet.

And before you tell me that I don’t understand what it’s like, I’ve been physically abused, lonely, depressed, and I have gone through all of the stages. I know how it feels, but I got through it. I couldn’t have let myself stay in such a state only partially hoping someone will rescue me for it, and telling myself I “tried my best” when in reality I didn’t until I actually pushed myself and got through it.

Not all people who kill themselves are cowards, but many are. They are going through pain, but they are running away from it and not trusting those who tell them that things will get better. They aren’t giving it 100% to get through it.

How can you be a psychologist! I am an undergraduate and am appauled at your comments. You should know people dont choose to be this way. Just because you’ve been through allot doesnt mean everyone else should be as strong as you. If you want to go anywhere with your degree then maybe you should try to understand people a little better you obviously have no idea. I think maybe you should change profession as this obviously isnt your natural field.

Mental disorders are not a choice!

I apologize in advance for any grammatical or spelling mistakes you encounter, I was in a rush.

I find your comment to be extremely ignorant and am amazed to hear it coming from a doctor. Your statement is based on a very outdated way of thinking. Depression is not a choice, it is a chemical imbalance. People with such an imbalance are more prone to Depression than others. While this does not mean they will definitely suffer from the disease they are certainly more vulnerable. Of course not all people who have Depression are genetically prone but most likely suffer from situational depression, possibly do to the loss of a loved one or after undergoing a traumatic experience. I suspect you only take this stance because you feel you are brave and have suffered through a hard time and are now spiteful of those who you believe to be weaker than you, your thought process being “well if I can do it they should suck it up and be able to do it too.” You have built up a lot of anger hence the use of the word “coward.” Unfortunately your spite has resulted in supporting a prejudice that surrounds people suffering with a depressive disorder. Depression is a disease, not some petty thing teenagers conjure up because they are bored. People suffering from suicidal thoughts and depression do not need to be told they are cowards but rather seek to be understood and to find something in life to cling on to. In your response you describe such people as being selfish, however if their life revolves around staying alive for one person just so they don’t feel pain doesn’t that make the other person selfish? Also your statistic stating that 99% of people suffering from suicidal depression have undergone no trauma is incredibly false. It is shown to be 87 to 98% of people suffering from depression are also victims of mental illness. From that number 30 to 50% of those people have suffered due to their own genetics which play a main factor in developing suicidal ideations and morbid preoccupations. In the United States 37% of women have been physically or sexually abused by the time they are 21(The Tech newspaper). Out of those people the majority will suffer from depression and possible suicidal thoughts (CNN Health). Your statement clearly proves your lack of knowledge for your current field and your statistical analysis only further demonstrates your lack of qualifications. I also suspect you weren’t serious about being a surgeon and have used your back as an excuse as to why you did not become one. In such a statement you also appear to be using false anger to gain sympathy. It is very clear from your post you are in denial and use your injury as an excuse as to why you cannot perform certain tasks. I would in fact have pitied you if I had not found out you were a psychologist who has been peddling destructive statements to his patients an act which I find incredibly infuriating and only serves to validate already reoccurring thoughts about their own sense of worthlessness. If I am 16 years old and already have a better grasp on depression, you should seriously reconsider your field and maybe seek help from a doctor of your own.

Dr. D,
It is nice to know that your life turned out so well, and you are probably an inspiration for many. But I don’t feel that you are doing some of us justice when you call us cowards for feeling this way. It is wrong to compare ones pain to anothers. Physical and emotional pain are two completely different things and I would advise you to not push people down and make them feel worse about themselves when they are at this piont in their lives. You could very well unknowingly cause someone to be pushed too far. I don’t want to see that happen. So please try to be a little more mindfull of your words and how they can affect people emotionally. Thank you.

How can you advise others, in a manner so patronizing, and spew nonsense about not knowing pain? Pain is individual, depression hurts, eating disorders hurt, other mental disorders which lead teenagers to feel the need to commit suicide hurt. So woop woop for you. Sitting on your high horse of condescension while exclaiming that we are simply “angst ridden” is not going to treat patient, it’s not going to make you a great psychologist… just another human being who can’t empathize enough to stop, reflect and do something helpful.

I would just like to publicly announce that i have less belief in this story than the ones where people have claimed to kill themselves! I’m one of many who have taken large doses of all types of legal and illegal and frequently self medicate with several of both variations of drugs so i can understand completely, both sides of the arguements.

The one thing that annoyed me about this rather ‘over-the-top’ post is that there is no need whatsoever to start with such disrespect for these people and although you don’t feel the need to push the limits, it doesnt mean you have the right to talk to them as if they are children and almost ridicule their deepest insecurities.

If, which i sincerely doubt, you are actually a real doctor in the real world then i would like to say that you have to be the most obnoxious and patronising unprofessional medical ‘Expert’ i have ever come across. The Psychology of the situation alone says that you are handling the situation in such a way that you will only exacerbate the problem thus you’re sole purpose on this blog is to push the ones suffering that little extra towards doing it!

Dr. I’ve got my Ph.D,
You are cruel. These people are reaching out to each other in hopes to understand why. You want to call teens or people cowards when you’re a “psychologist” and your job is to help people? You’re only making things worse. Just because you have a Ph.D doesn’t mean you know everyone’s life story. I know that what you say is just going to make people more upset and lower their self esteem because you called them a coward for thinking of doing things. What you don’t understand is that this helps people to be able to talk about how they are feeling and share their story to tell others it’s not the way to go and there are things to look forward to in life. You are just some smug, ignorant jerk to lower someone’s self-esteem even more just by calling someone a coward. You obviously need to go back to school or you went to school way too long ago to understand how the world works in this current time!

I agree with Dr. D in a way. People who face depression are not cowards, it’s the people who commit suicide. I do not agree with suicide, as there will always be a point in your life when it will get better. I have had depression before, but not to the extent of being suicidal, so I may not know what others feel like. I do wish people would actually consider not doing suicide, as its not the answer. You were put on this world for something other than an early death.

Closing the book is exactly the point though isnt it? I mean, hell… if I knew without a doubt that killing myself would end it, it would be done already. The only thing that stops me is that Im convinced Ill end up in an even worse situation than Im already in.

Wow Dr D. I feel so sorry for you!
Here I was, thinking that me having depression since i was 15, being a school leader at highschool, graduating very highly in the state, getting into a double law degree, meant I should be happy in my life.
Now I see, that I really have no excuses, do I?! To your pretentious perspective, I also need to have gone through what- physical and emotional hardship, also – to be ‘deemed’ appropriate to suffer from wanting to die?
Y’know what. It’s never teen angst. Teen angst, trite, snarky teenagers are normal. Wanting to die? Feeling sad and hopeless are not normal, and it took me four years to realise that, because i thought it was. I’m 19 now, and my mental state has literally deteriorated (and I’m being serious, I feel like I’m going insane, I have poor concentration and memory levels, as well as general mental instability) to the point where I no longer want to get better.

Is that cowardly? I am not a fraind of life, and I have seen that Life does have things to offer if you work for them.

How dare you say that anyone who is suicidal is cowardly. What do I know about pain? I know the pain of considering ending my life- of mentally preparing myself for death, and considering my parents and twin sister. How they’ll find my body, to ensure that I am ‘prepared’ for death (I won’t eat for a few days before hand, etc if that makes sense).

The pain of being a 15 year old and having no self esteem. Of being a 16 year old and hating myself. Of being 17 and self harming myself in the hope that SOMEONE might see them and ask me if I’m okay…

The pain of knowing I will never have “a great career a wonderful, loving husband, and two beautiful children” – simply because I can’t have two of the most imporant things in life, that even surpass those things. Love and happiness.
Without both, there is no point.

Thinking suicide is cowardly is your opinion. Enjoy it, but i sincerely hope you don’t share it with any of your patients who may be feeling suicidal, because I know how being shot down like that feels like.

Comment by Staystrong

I suffer from depression and anxiety disorder and am having terrible health problems. The thought of suicide has crossed my mind, but only fleetingly. I have been molested, I have been homeless, I have been verbally, emotionally and physically abused. And I am only 19! But I would never actually kill myself. Not because I think it is cowardly, but because I am too indecisive to make such a permanent decision and I believe it is the most selfish act one can commit. Also I believe if there is an afterlife, committing suicide will not be the road to salvation (whether it be heaven or some other kind of afterlife). I watched a movie called “Franklyn” and in it was a girl who would videotape her suicide attempts and always call the paramedics before she actually tried, just to piss her mother off for never admitting what her father had done to her. In the movie a man told her that the most important thing about suicide isn’t the people you leave behind, but the people you haven’t met yet. That was something that I had never thought about. You have no idea what and who your future holds. Don’t cheat yourself out of the experience simply because you are having a hard time now. Life has so much to offer, and I know its hard seeing people with everything handed to them, and it causes you to wonder why you got handed a life full of obstacles. Its only because you are strong enough to handle it. Write a book or something, do something that makes you happy whether it be writing, painting, dancing, ANYTHING. Take care of something, and you will see how much meaning your life truly has. Every person in this world has someone that cares about them even if it doesn’t feel like it.

Tell someone about the pain. it might not even have anything to do with the ibuprofen. And if it does, it must be treated.

If you are worried about money for hospital bills, if you ignore it and wait a few years, you could find yourself in the ER or something. You will have to go into debt or pay so much money if you don’t have health ins. There are better health care options for minors. If there is something serious to be taken care of, there will be more sffordable programs for someone your age.

I am sure it is nothing THAT serious. But it could be something that becomes a bigger problem. So tell your mom, go get a check up… and they will do something to make the pain go away – in the healthy way (not just masking the pain with otc pain-killers)

I wish you well. You are young. Take care of yourslef now, and when you are my age (31) you will be so happy you did! (All us older folk wish we could have that young energy back!)

You do not have to go to a regular doctor’s office if you cannot afford to. Any
emergency room in the country has to accept you regardless if you can pay
right then, or not. If you are a minor, then you have to have an adult (your
guardian) with you. Their should be a financial counselor there that you can
speak with after you are seen that help you find financial assistance. If you
are a minor, then every state has a Medicaid program for individuals under
the age of 21. Also, Medicaid offers dental coverage on minors under the age
of 18 at no charge. you just have to be financially eligible. Your guardian/
parent(s) would need to show proof (i.e. # of person’s living in the home,
tax return documents, financial statements, rent receipts, childcare receipts,
etc.). I hope this helps. If you want to try to get Medicaid coverage on your
own, you simply just need to contact your nearest Social Security Office. You
can make an appointment at their office, or, in some cases, complete a
telephone interview. It is that easy. Good luck.

I know this is really random, but if you are having pain in your back area and to the side where your kidneys are located, it might be a kidney stone. But you should really get it checked out. I went to the doctor last year explaining my pain. They did a CT scan and found nothing. I went back a couple months ago for a regular check up and explained the pain was still happening. I passed a kidney stone last week. I am beyond angry that I paid to have a CT scan done and they said nothing was wrong. That figures. HANG IN THERE, THOUGH!!!

ok, all of you who have taken that many ibuprofen
are idiots. for one thing, that specific medication
will most likely NOT make you overdose and die right
away, you may not even notice the signs of damage
for years.. but you have DEFINATELY shortened your
life span greatly. you have guaranteed that you will
have a slow, painful, and early death. ibuprofen causes
liver failure. even people who dont take that many at
a time, who take the recommended dose regularly, usually
end up with liver failure. if you drink, that chance is
doubled. i know all this not only because i’m in medical
school, but also from common sense. one more pill or
drink can send your organs into oblivion. WHY would
you fools want to harm your own bodies this way?
if you want to kill yourself, at least do it quickly! not that
i am saying you should. but fuck, if you’re this stupid,
maybe you should. you wanna trip? eat some fuckin
mushrooms, idiots. you are quickly destroying your
bodies from the inside out. worse than cigarettes,
worse than anything! medications are fuckin BAD for
you. even at the recommended dose. it is not natural.

Michelle, as much as your rant was directed, I fear I have to clear up a few misconceptions you
stated in your post. Do not take this too personally, but I know you are not in medical school. I
know, because I was. We (any form of medical student, past or present) do not take the stand
that you have chosen to take. We do not berate patients/citizens for their choices, we educate,
then offer healthier choices. You stated, “worse than cigarettes, worse than anything!
medications are fuckin BAD for you. even at the recommended dose. it is not natural.” NO
physician would say this, unless they are a Doctor of Homeopathy and that is not a “real” doctor.
An HP (Homeopathic Physician) gets ther education and license off from the Internet. Medications
are needed in many different ways and YES, they ARE natural. Aborigines and Egyptians used to
chew on the bark of certain trees for analgesic effects (pain relief). That is where we get some of
of OTC meds. Morphine came from the poppy plant. Even the illegal drug heroin is derived from the
poppy plant and synthesizes in the human brain into morphine. I am sure you would know that if
you were truly in medical school, but, like I previously stated, I am sure you are just obloviating.
Also, Ibuprofen CAN cause liver damage, but you are more than likely thinking about
acetaminophen (Tylenol). It is more destructive to the liver and causes hepatic comas with
intoxification, which usually has an onset from acute acetaminophen overdose. This in turn is one
of the main causes for liver transplants in the new millenium. Especially in the median range of 18-
35 year-olds. Sad, but true. Usually it is from painkiller abuse with the drug mixes. When you stated
that Ibuprofen causes liver failure, I am 100% SURE you were thinking of the base ingrediant of
Tylenol. Ibuprofen is more destructive on the KIDNEYS, usually over a long term period, or chronic
state. One last thing before closing. If you WERE are medical student, your grammer, punctuation
spelling and phrasing style would be more refined. It has not been that long since I took the
MCAT (Medical College Acceptance Test) and you do have to have a high degree of understanding
of the English language. This also means using a Thesaurus every now and again. I will wait for
you to look that up in the Dictionary…….The, saur, us. Got it, okay, let me continue. You have
absolutely slaughtered our beautiful language and then dare to confabulate about being in medical
school. I take offense to that! (By the way, confabulate means “to fib” or “to lie extensively”. Even
if I had never been in med school, I am sure that I could point out that you have never even been
near one of the cadaver labs. So, please, if you do want to go to medical school, start studying,
you have a LONG way to go before you get there!

Dr. D…

I’m not going to question the validity of your history/education, and whilst I find your style of communication perhaps a little condescending I can’t for one single moment blame you. It is so infuriating reading the majority of these comments…

I stumbled upon this site to convince my friend that her friend who overdosed on five ibuprofen is going to be fine. Never before have I seen such an amalgamation of attention seekers who will not listen to logic.

If people are [b]TRULY[/b] suicidal at the age of 15 (as the average seems to be around here) then what single reason is there NOT to see a counselor? Why? The only reason I can possibly think is because you don’t want to die, but instead have the badge to say you tried. It’s so sad because there are really people out there who need that help but won’t be noticed over the people who make nasty looking cuts on themselves in places that they know will be obvious or by swooning around talking about how many pills they swallowed (And looking at the list, the worst most will get is diarrhea, sweating and vomiting).

I do understand it though… [i]truly[/i]… and suicide is no laughing matter. I’m sure there may even be a case or two who visit this tweenpage who really do need help (and who really shouldn’t be afraid to seek it out, I know getting the branding of “mental illness” is terrifying, but it really doesn’t have to be that way… sometimes it is just help you’ll get, there doesn’t have to be any negative repercussions). What I will say is that all the attention seekers (and some I worry have no idea they are), are just being destructive to themselves, their family and the people who really need help.

As a last note, I implore anyone who is seriously considering suicide to seek out help… I think anyone who really DOES want to end it all would anyway. And I implore all of you who see it as a badge of honor to find a new way to get that attention you so crave so much like… I don’t know… doing something selfless or acheiving something worthwhile… perhaps even learning a new talent that can entertain everyone… hell become a stripper if you really want everyone to be gawking at you.

Hey, i appreciate your comments to DR. D he was infuriating me too. But with regards to the last section As a last note, I implore anyone who is seriously considering suicide to seek out help… I think anyone who really DOES want to end it all would anyway’. Im not sure. I’ve been wondering this myself but the attention isnt just a adolscent way of trying to be ….not sure how to word it but ‘craving attention’ as you say. In my opinion there are a few reason; 1. to show to those close to them that there really is something very very wrong and they need help. That things arnt just bad, they’re really really bad. 2. Suicide is a huge and emotional decision and those who are actually on the verge of doing it need help making that decision, to cry to someone and have a serious talk about why they want to do it.
But thats just my opinion.
Another opinion of mine is that Dr. D cant be a real psychology graduate as he knows nothing about human emotion.

I understand your point. I am 16 and suffering from suicidal depression. The reason I was not in therapy till I was 15 is because I came from an abusive household and my parents refused to take me seriously as they equate people suffering from depression, with being weak and pathetic. My confession actually led to more abuse, which escalated into severe molestation conducted by my father, while my mother stood in the same room laughing and asking if I was sorry yet. Not everyone has the ability to get help and some that are, are plagued by the stigma of the disease and live in denial. As for cutting I certainly do not use it as an attention maneuver. I mostly cut and burn my forearm because for some reason I find it most comforting to do it there. Most of the time when I cut, I do so while in a dissociative state, during episodes of extreme depression, as a means of preventing myself from committing suicide, or as a way to punish myself, as I bare a lot of self hatred and humiliation. A few months ago while in a dissociative state I tried to amputate my arm with a kitchen knife, however after seeing myself in the mirror covered in blood I snapped out of it and took myself to the hospital where I received two layers of stitches. While I understand your statement was not a personal attack on me, part of this post is also meant for therapeutic purposes, as a method of revealing my secret. I do however want to emphasize my point that not all self injurious wounds are meant to get attention, and not all people who attempt suicide are doing it to wear a badge of honor. Before I attempted my suicide it didn’t even occur to me to explore the option of a mental hospital. I just wish you would look at the situation by all sides and wait till you past judgement.

The MCAT is a multiple-choice examination, you do not need a comprehensive understanding of the English language to pass it.

On another note, as a Psychologist (?) do you really need to be so condescending and defensive in replying to comments? Futher, you can’t really critique Michelle when you referred to people wanting to kill themselves as “cowards” in a previous post – it’s somewhat hypocritical. Everyone thinks that they can give advice, but very few people know how to couch that advice. I.e. it’s not only what you say, it’s also how you say it that counts xxx

I thought psychologists weren’t medical doctors? Only psychiatrists were as they can register medical aid to the patient…
In fact I am sure that psychologists aren’t medical doctors…they can hold a phd and thus be a “doctor” but not a medical doctor.

I have to say the following with final point being closest to my heart and directed to Dr D:

1: Wow! I only came on here because when i was very sick (in my top 5 of sickies) this year i mixed up my ibuprofen dose over the course of a day or 2 and woke up with a horrible symptom, like an electric arc going through my brain about twice a second, I thought to myself “Siezure! oh FFFFFF—” but it went away. . .I’m sensitive to many meds though.

2: All you youngsters who are trapped by an endless ocean of human idiocy/insensitivity, don’t do shit to yourselves or you will never be able to help each other and the idiots win by default. . . yes it is real pain, but when you find the one or two, or many things in life that are for you it will be all the sweeter, trust me. Also there may be less wrong with you than you think and more wrong with those around you. . . .Also don’t get groomed by dirty paedophiles on these sites! BE CAREFULL.

3: Self harm is more complicated than people think

4: Finally, and most importantly, people with Narcissistic Personalities (to the extent it represents a disorder) are highly emotionally abusive, self righteous, full of themselves with an over exaggerated opinion of themselves and their abilities opinions etc and are highly represented IN THE FIELD OF MENTAL HEALTH, “Dr D”. . .I think Dr. Death when I read her comments. . .LOL I’m sorry. . . Dr. D I know is a woman and only 25% of narcissists are female but consider this: Narcissists very rarely end up in treatment because they consider themselves normal, on the other hand victims, of their emotional abuse, commonly do.

Peace Love and Empathy,

from someone else.

i cant eat certain stuff. 1 week after gettin out of the hospital
i started drinking and partying, bad idea!
2 whole weeks i had serious stomache pain.
my back would hurt too, i ignored it for 2 whole weeks
but then one night i couldnt take it. i had a lot of fever,
my stomache felt like it was burning && i felt really weak &
sore. i had to go to the ER where i found out i had a serious
infection && a liver failure. now im on medication.

I hope you realize that even though you feel fine physically now, your kidney is going to be shot in a few years. Killing yourself would be pointless, and you aren’t being very smart for not learning from it. You’re alive for a reason so make the most of it. If you live in this “there’s nothing for me here and I need to die” state, nothing will get better. It’s all in the mind, and you need to use yours to change your outlook on life. When you can do that, you’ll see how beautiful life is.

ROfL this made me laugh. You would think by the time you took 80 you would have realised it wouldn’t work. 290 thats funny. 290 though, I bet that was an expensive way to die. You should have used a rope around your neck or maybe even a tall building to jump off a tall building.

Why don’t people admit taking pills is not really trying to commit suicide but just to scare the shit out of everyone around them as a cry for help or attention. If people are really that desperate to kill themselves, then do it properly instead of taking 290 pills. *sigh*

Why don’t you try getting someone to help you with your :baggage”? There are plenty of sensative clinicians out there who want to see you live a full and torture-free life.I takes work on YOUR part but they will give you the tools t use. You were not put in the World by chance but for a purpose. Find out what the purpose is and stop blaming others for your failures. So many folks in “trouble” try to blame everybody else for their woes. Thats the biggest cop-out of all. No one has tied your hands. And kill the pity party as well. why can I say this to you??

You really shouldn’t do that. It’s not a narcotic. If you are trying to kill yourself — I sincerely hope you don’t — it is REALLY not the thing to use. Slow, long term sickness with lots of stomach pain etc? Please. You can kill yourself by setting your socks on fire repeatedly but…oh come on. Don’t.

You go trying that crap with tylenol and you’re going to die all right. tylenol/acetaminiphen is the number one cause of liver failure. once again, not the way you want to go. Not saying that one time with 20 going to kill you. once again, how many mg? Liver damage is cumulative AND can be all at once. Drinking alchohol with the tylenol makes it wose, JUST STOP DOING THIS, OK?

As much of a lie as it sounds.. I have literally taken an entire fresh (so i just pulled off the silver seal) bottle of ibu, then gone to bed (suicide attempt). I woke the next morning with the worst stomach ache and went to school and had a “normal” day. Ibuprofin is a funny drug– you can actually take more of it than suggested on the bottle. Just (even for the recommended dose) drink a LOT of water (I didn’t, I wanted to die).

Oooh, and I shoould probably mention that tylenol and ibu are different drugs… tylenol is FAR more serious with less of a dose. So… don’t go around saying tylenol when other are talking about ibuprofin. Trust me, i was hospitalized for a tylenol OD. I’ve spoken with health professionals about this topic.

2010-02-17 11:32:05

I took about 20 tablets called mandafen which I think is another type of ibuprofen. At the time it was a suicide attempt after arguing with my mum because I had far too much to drink. Immediately after taking them I regretted it and told a friend what I had done straight after it. She said I would be fine they would just make me sleep and I wouldn’t overdose. After she told me this I went to my bed and slept until the next morning. I woke up with a horrible hangover either because of the drink or because of the tablets and I had terrible pains in my stomach plus was sick which was watery and yellowish. So Overall i took 20 mandafen and was fine. Anyway, will doing this have a long term affect on me or if nothing happened will i be fine. And I agree with Zach, I believe that everybody has a purepose in life to be fullfilled once it has been fulfilled you die and until you fulfill this purpose you’ll stay alive and I believe that is the reason anybody who attempts suicide survives because they have not yet fullfilled their purpose in life.

I’ve lived in US for about 8 years and what a depressing place that is! I’ve lived in many countries.

I think its the entire capitalistic attitude/management/culture that brings itself down on its knees. No one talks to the other (termed self reliance). This is completely against the nature of human being. A human being by nature wants to be loved, cared, share the pain (halves when shared) /happiness (doubles when shared) etc.

People who attempt suicide, I personally think, are the extremely selfish people who don’t care about others. They can do so many things for the betterment of others like less-fortunate people than they are.

To everyone trying to commit suicide, please, wait for a month or 2 more to save enough money and visit poor countries like China, India, Nepal, Africa etc. and you’ll realize what life is, what friendship is, what family bonding is and what love is. There may not be enough money there, but there is an abundant love and affection.

Just move from where you are. Disconnect with everyone you know (for a while), and get out of there! If you are going to school, stop going there, if you have a job, wife, doesn’t matter. Just move! One thing, NEVER give up!

Life’s very very beautiful in every way. You just have to channel life properly.

Yes, there are problems in life, disappointments in life, shame in life, unhappiness in life, disrespects, feeling useless etc.. Everyone has them to a certain extent, but they are all what life is filled with.

I hate people thinking their life is a waste. So many things you could do.

You commented previously:

“No one talks to the other (termed self reliance). This is completely against the nature of human being. A human being by nature wants to be loved, cared, share the pain (halves when shared) /happiness (doubles when shared) etc.”

How do you know what the “nature” of man is? This may be the nature of one
person, but is totally opposite for another. The nature of man is to have free
choice, the right to live and sustain him/herself in that life. I am sorry if you
feel that capitalism is a bad thing. You must be from a Communistic/Socialist
country. If so, then you have been brain-washed into believing this and I
feel sorry for you. Capitalism has given America free speech, the right to live
free from the tyranny of government or a monarchy and the right to be as alone
or as loved as one wants to be. The nature of man is subjective; in other words,
it is whatever you want it to be.

You know Dr. D, I have read through these blogs and at first your story inspired me. I thought what an amazing person, so hard working and full of hope.

But it comes across in your blogs that you’re arrogant. What makes you the higher authority, because you’ve had hardship; you’ve not had all, because you’re educated; you don’t know all; because you believe in capitalism; have you seen the World wide damage it’s done.

So I ask myself why? Why would someone like you be like this and all I think is you’re arrogant, and achievements in some areas have lead to your loss of sight in other areas?

“You must be from a Communistic/Socialist
country. If so, then you have been brain-washed into believing this and I
feel sorry for you.”

I mean what kind of comment is this, I’m from Britain and I can see RK’s point, I don’t agree 100% with it but come on what a weak reply. A person of your education can do better.

Are you really a psychologist? What happened did all the understanding fly out the window?

In that long education did you forget about American history, naturally America would be home to Native American’s mainly, no doubt you believe killing them off in the name of development and “capitalism” was natural and good progress. There silence your freedom of speech.

If Dr. D had any form of training in psychology he/she would realise that RK’s advice is in part right.

Dr. D,

You have got to be the biggest piece of shit I have ever come across. Here people are trying to make some sense out of their life, trying to find someone, anyone who will lend them a sympathetic ear, and you do nothing but belittle them. A true psychologist would never speak to any person who is in such a fragile state of mind this way. Your personal accomplishments or hardships have nothing to do with these people and their problems. If you truly are a psychologist, then I thank God that it is not for people with mental issues like this, for you have the makings of the next Dr. Kevorkian. Instead of getting on here and calling these people cowards and pushing them closer to the edge, how about you just go find the nearest skyscraper, wait for a person who is on the edge, wanting to end it all, and just go give them a push? You may as well, because if I were suicidal and had read your posts, I would find no solace in your words. In fact, it would make me feel even more worthless than before. Get off this site and leave it for people who actually give a shit about others.

Whether you believe something or not doesn’t make it true or false. There is a purpose or should I say many purposes. Sometimes we come back to this planet to fulfill one thing, sometimes a life time. Things are not always easy and that is part of our purposes. When you succeed through those hard times and learn from them a growth happens and you enter another stage and onto something new. Sometimes we need to repeat many lifetimes before we complete our ‘task’ at hand. Believe it or not but you chose to come here, chose your parents and the things that are the hardest for you are the things you are here to learn from and when you do that you will begin to feel a purpose. Like attracts like. Negative attracts negative. Positive attracts positive. So when you find yourself in a state of feeling like a victim of this world, remember YOU are ALWAYS at choice! What do you choose, misery or happiness??

There IS purpose to life. For each of us it is different. You will not discover the purpose of your life walking around in a stupor of overdosed medication. You have to clean up your head and your act. This World is not what was originally intended for us. THATS why we are miserable. Once you learn that and seek love where it really is and find it, you wioll not believe the transformation that will take place in your thinking and acting. This may sound like a bunch of rhetorical crap to you now. But it is the tuth. Get going, get healp and get straight.

it will cause long term damage. the best thing
you can do to avoid liver failure and failure of other
organs is to seriously NEVER take one more pill
or have one more drink, EVER again. otherwise,
you will experience the consequences later in life.
this is coming from a medical student working to
be a doctor. i know what i’m talking about. my
own mom actually tried commiting suicide with
ibuprofen. nothing happened for a long time.
then, she had a drink.. and her liver failed.
take my advice and take care of yourself. life really
is precious and you’re very lucky compared to 85%
of this world. realize what you’ve got and learn
to appreciate it. if you dont, then use it to help
others who will. drinking does nothing but damage
your body and make you do things that you regret
anyways, so just dont do it. or you could die. and
dont ever take another ibuprofen again. not one

That’s good that you’re okay and here to share your story. I know that some people don’t appreciate the story telling and tell us that we just want attention, but it feels nice to have people to talk to about things that have happened.
I was in high school and felt like everything was falling apart. (no, DR., I am not a flippin’ teenager) It was a Thursday night and I took 17 tylenol, not ibuprofen, tylenol. I woke up the next morning. I felt fine but waited. I went to school and felt depressed the whole day. It seemed like everyone was saying hi to me and I felt horrible for what I had done. I felt selfish and actually, there was a girl at the lunch table that I was eating at and we were all talking about death and suicide and she said, “Suicide is selfish” I instantly got defensive. Later in the day I felt sick to my stomach. I went to the bathroom and got sick three times and was fine the rest of the day. It was wierd. I had a CT scan done to my stomach and all the organs for side pain a year later. The doctor said all my organs are in perfect shape. I am just thankful that I now know I am happy. Things may not go right for a while, but God has a plan for all of us. If you’re alive, you are supposed to be alive and you have a purpose in life. It may even be to get on here and change someones mind about comitting suicide! Wouldn’t that be a miracle? Everyone, just hang in there and think about the good things in life, even if it seems as if nothing’s going right, just keep thinking positive. :) I’m not one of those everyday gossip bible readers just to let everyone know, I’m not trying to preach to anyone! lol, I just want to help and I want you guys to know that I will pray for you because I know how it feels to just want to give up.

it doesn’t necessarily have to be a suicide, c-dot. sometimes ppl like to screw around. or take as many as it takes to feel better. god don’t get so angry about shit. and no. Half if that can’t kill u. that’s nothin. Try it urself

nigga please.
i’ve taken like 2,000 mgs of ibuprofen, a bunch of diff meds with shit tons of asprin in it and a shit load of cough syrup all at once and the only bad side affect was diarrhea(sp?) but yeah you are quite the ignorant ass hole to be flipping out like that.

Actually, if they are the regular Motrin tablets (200 mg per pill), then they would have ingested 8000 mg of Ibuprofen with 40 pills. If we assume that they were at around an average of 70kg, they took 114.29 mg/kg. If you read the article (which is correct), it points out that toxic effects are unlikely to occur at doses less than 100 mg/kg. 114.29 mg/kg is only slightly higher, and therefore, it is a definite possibility that they could have ingested 40 pills, and still be live. Ibuprofen does not react with the other drugs mentioned. Before you go and rant about someone, make sure you have the scientific facts correct.

dush bag pain killers dont kill you instantly they kil you overtime the kil your liver and kidneys off slowly and painfuly, and you die pretty much slowly and painfully, also taking any overdose on pills from over the counter it gives you 72 hours to get to hospital maximum to have a coal meal (taste like shit) to reverse the effect after 72hours ya fucked and need a liver and kidney transplant if you lucky enough to get one

Comment by Dr. D

72 hours is not a “magic number”. The half life of medications such as Tylenol and Advil are usually
3-4 hours, respectively, when they plateau in the body, before being metabolized. If you ingest a
large quantity of ANY medications, you can be dead in as early as 6-8 hours. Please do not dispense
erroneous information that can wind up getting someone killed if you do not know what you are talking
about. You do not always need a transplant after an overdose. Once again, your ignorance is not
our bliss. Think about it, you might understand it in a few years, after you have matured some and
have grown a few more bed cells that may synapse at the same time.

Are you actually a real doctor or do you just spend all your time berating others and having a generally condescending attitude towards them?

Anyone with a brain and access to Wikipedia can easily figure out all the information that you’re spitting out like you know something everyone else doesn’t.

Dr. D,

It’s really a waste of time for me to be commenting on such uselessness but Christopher is correct. You are not GOd and you are only commenting with rage…it seems. It’s surprising that you have time to come on to these websites anyway to comment on teenager’s discussions of their problems, which are not yours! You may have a Ph.D but that means nothing to anybody on this site. You are a terrible person for commenting on here like you have been doing. But I guess we can’t judge you for how you are because we clearly all have problems that we need to address.

you have about 12 hours to get it out of your system but you still wont die for as long as 2 weeks.

and btw im not encouraging overdosing so im not going to say how much (if your really that desperate im sure you could find out on your own) but you have to take ALOT to die and it usually doesn’t work. please if you have suicidal thoughts or just want to talk to someone talk to a counselor, a parent, or a trusted adult. your life is important!

Firstly,well done for getting up them,bout braggin and the possibility of young ones reading and possibly copying such bad behaviour.Sadly though there is a world full of people continually looking for a way to get off,or out of this world,just temporarily to ease their pain or boredom.Also sadly,when people start using meds to get off theybuild a tolerance to certain drugs.I personally kno of this young lady who took 40Nurofen plus tablets over the day,this equals 8000mg of ibuprofen,which is like 7200mg over the max dose recommended for an adult.I have been looking on net to get facts to give to her,as Im terrified for her,thats when I found your comments.Although she didnt die,she will now suffer for the rest of her days as Im positive that her body is going to slowly pack it in over future years.It was a stupid thing to do.It is the most stupid way to consider overdosing yourself.Suicide is never the answer,but there are ways to ease your pain,that wont leave you with long term health problems,u think yr depressed now,wait till your stuck in hospital,tubes hanging out of your body everywhere,and your unable to do anything to ease yr depression then.PLEASE REACH OUT TO SOMEBODY BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO TAKE YOUR LIFE,seriously,unsuccessful suicide attempts leave you so terribly damaged.

yeaa im 16 and i’ve taken 50 pain pills at once and i was just reallll dizzy and tired :P it was a mix of about.. 25 ibuprofen, 10 naproxen, 5 aleve, and 10 tylenol PM. taking that many pills doesnt necessarly mean you DIE.. i didnt have internal bleeding or anything but my blood was VERY VERY thin and i was tired for about 4 days afterwards . how i could tell my blood was thin was because i would brush my teeth and my gums would bleed, and i would rub my nose and it would instantly start bleeding and it WOULD NOT stop . and not everyone takes pills for attention. lots of people lie about it because they’re just that lame. its not good to ‘brag; about it but its good to let other people know the risks of taking pills before they decide to overdose like me :P its not very fun..

not to be rude, but as the little info said, “it DEPENDS on your weight, height, and on how your body can handle it.” So… here’s the thing, yes 40 ibuprofen pills might be able to kill someone… and then again they cannot. Most of the time people hear about ibuprofen overdoses but not commonly a death along with it. So you were both right, there is no need to become upset over a common conversation about the effects and possible results of ibuprofen overdose.

Yeah there’s no way you’d be able to take all that and not be affected. Especially 40 prescription pills. And taking nyquil and dayquill at the same time is a dumb idea because that actually counteracts and makes you pass out, I’ve seen it happen. So don’t brag about all the shit you took and not talk about a hospital. And if you seriously took all that you need some serious help.

Plus I drank a handle of Captain Morgans, ate 10g of mushrooms, smoked 3g of pot, snorted 10g of coke and 10 20mg Lunesta, injected 10cc’s of morphine, rectally absorbed a 10 strip of acid and 10 Flinstone Vitamins, and poured a 20oz bottle of 1 million scoville unit hot sauce into my tear ducts. Finally I covered 98% of my body with a high gloss lead-based paint. I have started to get a little bit of a headache and my right earlobe is kinda itchy. Should I be concerned?

I agree with Chris as well. The two dummies, who are bragging, are idiots! My sister in law was 43 yrs old and had some bad pain in her arm, so she was taking 800 mg every 3-4 hours for almost two weeks. My brother came back from his hunting trip and found her laying around, weak and complaining. He took her to the hospital, where she collapsed, and was rushed to the intensive care unit. All the medical technology could not save her. She died of multiple organ failure about 12 hours later. So, fools………find something else to joke about!

I dont see whyy youu wouldd tell people that look at this that 40 ibuprofen doesnt do anything to youu. Im 15 and i was addicted to ibuprofen after i tore my left quad completly in halff, it got bad enough to the point that i was taking 10 at a time several times a day. The doctor told me i’ll be lucky if my liver hasnt failed by my mid 20s – early 30s. Kids that read your comment will think its “cool” to take alot of otc pain reducers mixed with other things because you make it sound like its nothing and a great experience and the truth is, its not! It causes serious problems for people and has the potential to end lives. Think about what you’re saying and how people will view it before you post idiotic comments like that.

Take care of yourself and anyone else that has overdosed.
I have never overdosed again since I had the gastric lavage and would not recommend anyone to try this

2010-01-28 23:45:26

quite honestly, nothing i could say would ever come close to properly addressing the magnitude of the stupidity and irresponsibility you exhibited in your comment.

for a moment, I felt some despair, followed by hope that your friend would realize that you care about her, followed by an irresistable compulsion to slap myself back into awareness.

with a friend like you, someone who would turn to an anonymous web page full of casual visitors, for advice about a potentially life threatening situation, your overdosing friend needs two things: medical advice, and a friend with a mature, sane, and sensible grasp on EMERGENCY SITUATIONS.

Please, do yourself a favor, and learn the following phone number: 911. It is short, simple, and useful in situations where someone’s life might potentially be at risk.

Consider this one a ‘gimme’ from the Universe; your friend, likely a drama queen, was not in any real danger (unless she has preexisting medical conditions, though I doubt you would be aware of any, given your seeming lack of knowledge in this area of life)… should you ever find yourself in another situation, where there is immediate danger, consider calling 911.

For example…resisting the urge to Google “I’m being held up. What do I do?” and calling nine eleven (another way of describing it is ‘nine one one’) will save you precious years in recieving advice.

If you don’t want to listen, and I’ll assume that you are a 15 year old female who will not listen to reason, consider this: 911 Cops are cute. LOL ^_^

Talk all you want about stupidity and such. With the name “Jesus” it all becomes a religious factor. How about you try to step yourself down a notch or two from a “god like” feeling to a personable feeling. Show some sympathy and caring. Maybe then people will be more inclined to listen to you. On a web board such as this, people want to hear from other “people” not others who wish to call themselves a messiah or god. Maybe you need to analyze yourself and your own actions before you attempt to fix others……

You want to be a jerk? Here’s a true story. I took anti-freeze. Mixed it in a crown royal glass half way then filled the rest with Pepsi. It was nasty and tasted like syrup. But was my choice. That was around midnight. The next morning, I woke up (ALIVE STILL, Lord I don’t know how) and felt as if the world was on top of me. My brain felt like it was going to explode and as if I had been held upside down the whole night and the blood rushed to my head. I could barely move. My mom came in my room and told me I needed to go to school, (she had no idea) and I screamed at her and told her no. First time yelling at my mom. I fell out of bed and onto the floor and crawled the whole way down the stairs, sliding down a step one at a time. I couldn’t focus and I was drooling, my speech was slurred and I was scared to death. I laid my car keys on the glass table next to the door and told her she could move my car. I crawled back up the stairs and into bed. She didn’t believe me when I told her that I was sick. She left for work and my dad came home from his night shift. He heard me getting sick and had to explain to my mom that I really was sick. I threw up for two days straight and went to school on the third day and was very tired. My first period teacher told me to go home because I looked green. I told him no and went to school. That was the worst feeling I have ever had in my life. I will never do that again. If I get near anti-freeze, I get queezy. But, I had a CT-Scan done and everything is fine. This is not a joke and it is not a lie.

Why are you so negative towards talking to “my kind?” Are you afraid we might make you own up to your emotions?

Comment by Mentally Ill
2010-05-01 02:05:13

Dr. D

You really just need to stop commenting. During my life, I’ve seen a couple dozen of “your kind.” Some I saw for a couple years, some for a few months, some were merely consults. Some were licensed therapists, some were psychologists, some were psychiatrists, some were social workers. Most did very little to help. Perhaps, because they had an attitude like you. I’m now seeing a wonderful therapist (PhD).

There is great cause to be so negative towards talking to your kind. Many of your kind are completely clueless, pompous twits who think they have all the answers because they passed their exams in college. Guess what? You don’t know squat.

I’ve been severely harmed by more than one therapist. These therapists assume they know what is what. They do not listen. They are judgmental. They are a disgrace to their profession. It is not possible to “own up to your emotions” when you are being belittled by your therapist.

Random, finding a good therapist is NOT easy. It may take years of trying. But it’s worth it once you find him/her. It’s at that point you are able to work toward learning to cope with your emotions.

Comment by Muldrow
2010-07-15 21:24:44

Dr. D,

he’s not talking about your kind. He’s referring to real shrinks. Frankly, I don’t think you’re a shrink. I think you’re one of those people who devoted their lives to becoming a shrink, but never could, and therefore you failed in fulfilling your dreams. In effect, you go around pretending to be a doctor just to make yourself feel better about yourself.

I wouldn’t be surprised if you now are going to reply with a bunch of info and attempt to prove to me that you’re a real doctor, but it’s probably phony so don’t even bother. But, if you are a doctor or a shrink, you’re even more of a failure than if you weren’t. I’m not surprised that you’re on this website if you were. Because you’re so condescending, arrogant, and insulting towards people seeking help on this page, I can’t imagine what you’re like to your patients. Therefore, I have come to the conclusion, which is so plausible that I think it’s probable, that you’re on this website because you tried to overdose on Ibuprofen for being such a failure at being a doctor. You’re not helping these people. It’s almost as if you’re trying to get them to kill themselves.

Please, don’t say anything again, or if you do, say it like a real doctor and not a phony, and if you are a doctor, try not to be so obvious that you’re a failure. I recommend you start by getting off this website, stop making more people suicidal, and actually try to help people. Or, if you’re not a doctor, which you probably aren’t, give up now at pretending to be one. You’re doing more harm than help. I suggest you doing this by shutting the fuck up.

People also haven’t considered the dosage of each pill…200mg per pill for your average OTC ibuprofien pill is fairly weak. I usually use two 200mg pills to cure a headache (400mg total) ; 3 pills (600mg) for really bad migraines.

I’ve seen prescribed 800mg ibuprofen, but you can only get that if you’ve harmed yourself severely.

Ibuprofen can cause liver damage if taken too often. Also people who take an entire bottle of aspirin just get an very upset stomach and tinnitus. If a person really wanted to kill themselves they would not be taking over the counter meds such as these. I had a friend commit suicide and she took overdoses of prescribed medicine. She took 30 Xanax, 50 Calan, and was drinking alcohol. There was another drug she took, but I can’t remember what it was. Anyhow, the Xanax is an anxiolytic, the Calan slows down the heart rate, and the alcohol just intensified the effect. She really wanted to die and knew just about how much and what to take.

I hope you have visited the doctor already. It is not advisable that you wait for someone to resolve such an emergnecy over the net. Possibility of the following are high: Toxic reaction – in exceptional cases it can be fatal. An ibuprofen overdose, although usually benign, can occasionally produce serious toxicityOther consequences may be Nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, mild central nervous system depression, coma, tachycardia, apnea, metabolic acidosis with or without respiratory alkalosis, hematemesis, and oliguric renal failure. None of this can be managed at home. I repeat please visit the doctor asap.

I knew a beautiful girl. 17. Ready to graduate high school.

She got mad at her boyfriend and thought she would “teach” him a lesson.

She took (I’m not sure how many) Tylenol. She thought they could pump her stomach and then everything would be all right. Well, I guess by the time she told someone (she was totally lucid) her liver was destroyed.

She died a terrible death. She knew what was happening.

Wow, i’m really glad i seen this. My boyfriend of 3 yrs. just left me.. i thought everything was okay between us after we had a huge argument this morning, i know he’s not worth my life, because my daughters way more valuable to me, but it did hurt that he could just up and leave, i wanted to hear from other peoples opinions thats why i came on here.. i know it was a stupid thought but when your in pain and it feels like your whole world just came crashing done what else are you supposed to think about? After seeing this article i changed my thoughts i wanted to teach him a lesson a serious one, but he’s not worth my life, when he doesn’t even want to be a part of it. To all you overdosers, believe me i know how you feel.. i don’t think your stupid or anything because life is the hardest thing, and it does feel like death would be way easier, but believe me you’ll get through the hard times, even when it feels like you won’t, and losing your lives not worth any problem you might be having, i don’t care who you are, you are important to SOMEONE out there, just find that someone.. I’m no counselor, ad i’m not trying to preach to anyone but seriously i think everyone can make a difference even if you think you can’t, the little things matter too.

Not every suicide attempt lands you in a mental ward, but the will DEFINATELY do a psych eval and work up to determine if you are still suicidal. If you are, then they will probably admit you to the psych ward (most hospitals have one for this reason) for anywere between 24-78 hour suicide watch or observation. Regardless, if you have thought about or attempted suicide, I advise at least going to talk to a councelor at a community counceling center, a religious adviser (if you are a religious person), school counceler, or a hot line or something. There is no shame, it is confidential. and it might help out alot just to help you get a better grip on what is going on in your life.

If you have true migraines, I encourage you to see a cardiologist. I have a friend who suffered daily from migraines for years. It turned out that she had a hole between the upper and lower chambers of the heart. Supposedly, many people have this, but it never poses a problem. However, they repaired the hole, and she is now free of migraines for the first time in many, many years. Hope this helps. Joyce

cocain is a natural anesthetic and one of the side effects of it is numbness. Your girlfriend most likely didnt know that as well as you and had a panic attack making her want to gag not throw up

she probably took the advil to stop the burning in her nose after she snorted it.

Your doctor is confidential, go talk to him/her. If you are worried about side effects it is okay, you are clear from the obvious danger now. But you need to talk to someone who will help you. Remember your doctor cannot speak to anyone, but if you are underage and sign as a codependent tell them what you are saying is confidential. Good luck and remember that there is always an answer.

seriously whats wrong with you people. If all you want to do is kill yourslef, and have tried to kill your self, then
you have bigger problems then worrying about side effects later on in your miserable lifes. Stop wanting to die.
I’m not saying that you shouldnt take any pain medications, but if you want to pop a few more then 400mg(highest recomended
amount) because the your in alot of pain then do it. AND DONT COMPLAIN ABOUT IT!!
and to answer julie’s question, your friend is in no trouble and she’ll be just fine.
for example: i wiegh 165 pounds and im 5’9″. i had a horrible headache and wanted to go out drinking with some friends.
so i poured 20 pills into my pocket before i left the house. By the end of the night i took 17 200mg ibprofen, and about
1 gram of cocain, and 9 shots of captain morgan and i was throwing up by 7:30 because of the pills.
Basically your body knows whats best and it will take care of itself in many different ways.

alot of people are aware of that but its mostly because of damaged organs or huge loss of blood wich is the original creation for stiches to seal up a wound with constant bleeding… i mean think about it if you got cut throw your whole leg up and about 5 inches deep and say “its gonna heal eventually” and keep walking your probably gonna die but idk people on here say THE CRAZIEST shit. suicide is a serious thing i still do it its nothing to be proud of my so called “Friends” ditch me out of eveything i move on and then a shit load of ppl treat me like shit for the past 2 months me and my brothers *bestest friends e consider eachother brothers* have been cutting me out of conversations and activitys it makes me feel like shit i cut myself to show them im not afraid to leave them in this world they say they would change constantly. but they dont so i have agreed “if they care about me they will come or try to find me” so im gonna go somewere else. overdosing has huge effects people are fiuced up theres a kid in my health class always braging about smoking its a not a new thing congrats you do what everyone else does do you feel special? no people need to learn that this isnt cool or alright this is a HUGE and SERIOUS topic which shouldnt be talked about as a joke my friend hadiya just got outta jail from running away and she toldme verything was a lie except that time with overdosing im not gonna lie i was scared for her because she wasnt going to well before they rushed her. and you guys sit here talking about it for what? beause you think your cool? because you want attention? no dont do it for attention because one day you just might fuck up and actually die. i didnt right in caps because im gonna trust you can read. thank you for your time and reading with me

Was wandering the internet curious about ibuprofen overdoses
because I overdosed on it ages ago, and remember a nearly
week-long hospital stay, blood gas tests, perfusion IV, etc.
Ummm… It’s not easy to kill yourself on ibuprofen (for any
of you who think it would be), and actually has to be a long,
painful death. You kill your kidneys, and then die after they
shut down. I got tired of waiting (didn’t realize it could still
happen), and finally called the poison control center, drove
myself to the ER (hoping to pass out and run into something and
die on the way), and lived to tell the tale.

I suggest getting help. God bless.

Last month, I took and ibuprofen overdose. I had 50 pills. I’m not sure what the mg was though.

This sure isn’t the only time, because I used to regularly pop 10 at a time, and I have taken 20 at a time at least twice.

The doctors know and they didn’t send me anywhere. [I'm only 14 and was already under the treatment of a psychologist].

I had a liver function test, and so far, there is only minor damage from my drinking plus the advil.

I’m really freaked out that something more major could happen..
Does anyone know

400mg/kg isnt 400MG its 400 MG PER KG. its according to your weight. so if youre lets say maybe 110 pounds, thats about 50 kg. so youd need to take 400 mg of ibu. for ever kg (400×50) thats 20,000mg, which is 100 of the 200mg pills. so if you’re 110 pounds youd need to take about 100 before there is any serious effects of overdose. not if you take 400mg. which is nothing. doctors prescribe 800mg pills to take 2-3 times a day all the time for pain, so chill out everybody if you’ve taken less than 100+. youll get a headache, stomachache and vomit.

Actually he did figure out the math right.

I would have to take 30 just to get to the 100mg/kg danger point. At 400mg/kg, I would have to take 120. I’m sure the more you take the faster it would affect you. You might die more slowly with less or do more harm. 120 seems like more than enough to kill someone though.

damn! i tried to od just now. i took like 14 pills cos they were the only thing in the medicine cabinet that looked like smarties. i just wanted to die! i also downed some gee’s linctus along with it.. i then chose to google ‘ibuprofen overdose’ and all i get is you guys saying it will damage my insides and my body will fail piece by piece.. AAAAAHHH im to cowardly to die painfully!

haha, i did the same thing. (i took 5 pills and was hoping it would make me die it my sleep or somehting, since it says on the bottle that ibuprofen can cause drowsiness) should’ve tried other pills. i am also too much of a wimp to die painfully.

haha, you guys are just so funny… i overdose on food all the time and hope to explode one day…. lol. ibpropine and paracetamol overdoses are the worst that i have taken they dont do anything much to you except make yoiu violently sick. i was sick the whole day and night,… it was nasty, i couldnt help it i had to enduce it.. that was the last time i tock that overdose, was in hospital for 3 or 4 days and had temporary liver damage but nothing serious. i find its much better to overdose on sleeping tablets or anti depressents and anti psychotics, it feel sbetter and you actually kind of lose awearness so thats good, a break from your problems.

i am not encouraging anyone to do this. but i find that paracetamol and ibprophin and other pain killers are almost useless – they make you feel crap and not good like anto depressents, sleeping pills and anti psychiootics.

Man i just wanted to know if I i should use ibuprofen for my neckache and I get this unbelievably long war about suicide. get a life if you wanna kill yourself go ahead because your life obviously sucks to have a serious thought like that. and if you don’t wanna kill yourself and think the idea of it is pointless then amen to you, your life doesn’t completely suck.

Every year of my life i wait for my father to call me on my birthday but he doesn’t, and every few years he will call and say he will visit but he doesn’t. I call him on fathers day and wish him a happy fathers day but he doesn’t answer. how would you feel if your father hated you and you can do nothing about it? and your mom is struggling to pay bills and keep her children happy without any child support from daddy.

so fuck you guys if you want to commit suicide you are pathetic. why end your life if nothing comes after it and don’t give me that heaven shit because you committed a sin. having a life is great because you are alive.

Idk about actually bein able to overdose on them,, cause 2 weeks ago i was doin some shots and i got some bad news and i tryed to overdose on them… take in mind im 20 years old 170 pounds and i found one of those like industrial size bottels that had like 500 200 mgs or so in them.. it was a closed bottle and well i feel asleep the next day my friend counted what was left and told me that i took 345.. some overdose.. but the liver pains do happen when i try and drink liqure.. heh like thats gonna stop me

Comment by Josh

I did a similar thing a year ago i took a whole bottle of 200mg and I didn’t overdose… I didn’t even have liver pain. I also had blood tests and other tests done a few months after and my liver was just fine if not in better then normal condition. I weighed 145 pounds at the time so overdose seems a little profound to me.

i’m almost 23 and 220lbs. i’ve been havin tooth pains for 2 days and today i took 12 pills (12 of the 200mg). i didn’t really think about the “do not exceed 6 pills in 24hrs” warning on the back of the label. i wasn’t trying to overdose on ibuprophen i was js trying to take away my teeth pain. i think tho my body has gotten used to ibuprophen cuz my tooth still hurts. so far nothing has happened. not gonna lie kinda scared to go to sleep but i’m exhuasted and my teeth hurt lol.

hmmmmm then whats the point?
your going to vomit.. and mess up your liver for the
rest of your life. and who knows you might be one of those strange orrences of people that happen to die to too much advil in your system … that doesnt really make any sense
at all except that you are wanting attention and this
isnt exactly thw way to do it.. why dont you just get drunk
drink as much liqure as you can.. and when you cant see anymore have your friend pour you more shots.
that would be better then od’n on ibuprofen…. you will thank me later

…no it won’t. alcohol poisonning is much, much worse. more painful, and more dangerous. anyone who thinks popping advils or ibuprofen is a good way to get a high is too desperate. even if you DID feel high, it would be a very unpleasant one. like having too much nutmeg, or drinking a teaspoon of antifreeze windshield fluid.

Honestly. Everyone calm down!

Less than 10 ibuprofens will NOT KILL you!
So everyone who is worried because they took 8 or 9, you are fine. Unless you’ve been doing this for years, then I’d suggets seeing your doctor.

I’ve taken around 150,200MG pills [=30,000MG] and i’m still here.
As for my liver, minor damage.

@ VINCENZO- your a retard. noone cares.
@ wuzzittoya – THANK YOU. obviously these people need to know that. It’s torture to die that way. Months of pain, and not being able to go to the bathroom on your own.

50, 200mg pills at once only knocked me out for a few hours.

and those of you who want to get knocked out, do you know how stupid you are?! i’ve been addicted to ibuprofen. it is NOT fun.

Ask your doctor for some mild sleeping pills.
Problem solved.

My friends cut and have pain killer addictions, what will happen if i continue this? all of my friends just started out with little stuff like this but, now they have all attempted suicide at least once. i dont feel well, kinda depressed actually. please help me. thank you, i am making a promise i will not hurt myself, not yet.

I think you all should stop ,first of all, trying to overdose on common household pills, it is an attempt to get attention not to get death. If you really want to die use something much stonger. Ibuprofen is a great pain reliever. I need to take at least 6- 10 at a time though because I have built a tolerance to them. Yesterday I took an entire bottle(50pills/200mg) just to keep my pain at bay, and here I am today, feeling fine. I understand that for some people this may be too much, but I think your body will let you know.

You know, a gun would probably be the best option. It works a charm, and is pretty quick to do the trick. And a bonus is that if you live in the US, you’ll be able to pick one up pretty easily too – Just ask your four year old cousin if you can borrow theirs.

Plus another added bonus is that it instantly renders the “victim” unable to post retarded comments on to websites (such as this one, for example)

Actually anything more than 400 mg (2*200 mg pills) is considered toxic and not recommended. People who habitually take more than this amount slowly develop a tolerance without even realizing it. So after some time they need to take more and more to ease the pain.

However, taking 20 or 50 pills is just crazy. If you wanna kill yourself, go and subscribe for an After-Death eye donation, kidney donation, liver donation, heart donation program and then slash ur wrists in a bathtub. It does’nt hurt and leaves ur organs donatable if you are discovered not long after you die. So this way not only do you get to die but you can give a few people new life that they desperately need.

Still, no matter what your troubles, cherish your life. It is very precious, look at all those people who get cancers and AIDS and die long painful deaths. Celebrate LIFE itself, even if you don’t have money or fame or somebody to love. Death is a terrible tragedy.

You have to be incredibly stupid to use ibuprofen recreationally or to kill emotional pain. Any 12-year-old with access to OTC medicine or even a vitamin shop can do better than that. Who the hell wants to damage their liver and suffer stomach bleeding?

You guys are either American or retarded, hang on same difference. Why don’t you just swallow 2 tablespoons of table salt? That will kill you and it’s much cheaper than buying expensive drugs to top yourselves.

I’ve been taking IBUprofen for the last 5 years for back pain and headaches. I only need to take 1-2 a day (200 mg each, so 400mg max).

I’ve never over dosed and don’t want to. All you people trying to over dose really need to stop.

I was just looking on the internet to see if I should be worried that I accidentally took two 400mg tablets of ibuprofen instead of the x2 200mg that I normally take if I have a headache. After doing some research, I’ve decided that that dose may overdose to a little old lady who is allergic to ibuprofen, but not a strapping 24 year old man. I’m not going to make a habit of it though.

From what they’ve said, my girlfriend took about 80 Ibuprofen and she is in Intensive Care right now and they’re watching for her kidneys. She’s fine right now but I need to some advice. I want everything to be alright because this is my girlfriend and I love her very much and I’m worried. I’m home right now but I am gonna try to get some sleep and go see her real early and stay there all day. She’s been in there for 1 1/2 days so far. I really don’t think she took 80 though because from what she said it was about 30 but they said it looked like she took about 80. It was a stressed out situation and she doesn’t ever wanna mess with anything like that again. It’s hard for me to get any sleep because I am so worried. Will someone help and maybe talk with me about this?

People – forget taking an overdose of ibuprofen to try to make yourself feel better.

Go to your doctor and get some codeine and just mellow out a while.

Life will get better.

You guys are idiots.. To Megan – That amount will not kill you. It will only do some minor possibly nothing to your body. No it will not kill you. I used to have herbes and they did hurt for a while. But you will get used to them. Just don’t take too much of them. It can damage your liver for the rest of your body.

The night before last my niece tool 90 800 mg ibuprofen with half a bottle of abilify and half a bottle of lamictal. She took it around 1:am and was discovered with vomit and all bodily fictions on the carpet. She was in ICU only one night before being transfered to a facility. When if any of the effects will appear and can she still die even though she is alert and awake? Thanks

I just recently went to the doctor and she asked me what im taking an i told her ibuprofen.
I said I was going to overdose cause i was taking 3 200mg…3 times a day because of medical problems
and she assured me that you can take up to 4500mg a day before you overdose…theres an extremely lw
chance of it damaging your organs..stay away from asprin..thats the worst.

the author of this article has no idea what theyre talking about.
im 15 years old and take 5 at a time.
i have shin splints, decrease in bone mass because i broke my ankle twice and completely flat feet
which is causing back and neck problems.

so you will be fine. it hasnt made me sick and i dont have a high tolerance for medicine.

Very confused.
wikipedia says 400mg/kg is really bad.
I have a painful knee, my doctor has proscribed 400mg tablets of ibuprofen to be taken 3 times a day.

Comment by bj
2010-06-26 15:59:18

400mg/kg is different to 400mg. 400mg/kg means 400mg per kg, so if you take 400mg for every kg you weigh then that is bad, not 400mg on its own xx

Hey Guys…
about 4 months ago I ODed. I ended up in hospital. I took 20 Diclofenac, about 15 sleeping pills, 30 Panadol tablets and a whole bottle of Nurofen. Thats about 150 pills……..

I had my stomach pumped and i am still struggling. I really wanted to die. My life had become a total nightmare i wanted out. I didnt tell anyone what i did which is why it came as such a shock when my boyfriend woke up and found my lying next to him out cold. He called an ambulance and i was rushed off to the ER. I was so close to dying. one of my kidneys shut down and because i had a couple of other medical problems i developed a small clot in my brain.

Im so so so incredibly lucky to have realised as i was lying in ICU that people really do care. If i had died it would have hurt so many people. Im ok now just taking it one day at a time. 10, 15 pills wont do anything. It will make you feel stink but it wont do anything.

I must be crazy, and I have no one to talk to about it cause they wont understand, they’ll probably report me 2 a guidence couniseler and she’ll tell my mom and then ther will be even more problems in my life. I think I’m ok. But I felt kinda sick yesturday, could I still die, I’m really scared! I realized that I dont wanna die, I was crying, Im so scared, please help!!!

hi, i overdosed on ibuprofen about a year ago.
i took about 80 pills at once.
passed out within an hour.
ended up sick and puking for 4 days,
then finally called poison control.
they told me they were suprised i wasnt dead already,
so i got a friend to drive me to a hospital,
was in there for a week…
the doctors said my liver was shrivled up like a raisin.
my enzymes were through the roof.
i am so happy i made it past that time.

but now, a year later, i am still sick
ALL The time.
im constantly dehydrated,
never have an appetite,
frequently get nauseus,
have loss of breath,
and vomit up stomach acid for no reason.

im trying my best to stay healthy, but i dont know what i could do?
or what i even have..?
any advise?

Everything is answered for you. most of you are going about 5-10 pills.

Just so everyone gets it, it is 400mg/ Kg of your body weight. That means if you weigh 60 kg then the toxic dose would be 24,000mg, which is 120 (one hundred and twenty) 200 mg tablets. So no, 5 tablets will not kill you, 10 tablets will not kill you but 120 may just do that. Trust me, you don’t want to end up in the ED, sick as a dog and have to drink charcoal or have your stomach pumped and be looked down upon by all the staff, because it’s your own stupid fault that you’re there and there is other ‘sicker’ people more deserving of their time. You will probably then be asked the same questions a zillion times but 10 different people and then transferred to the psych. department. It’s just not worth it- especially if all you want is attention.

People who sit around saying: omg, why do u commit suicide, u should appreciate ur life bla bla are the real blind and vicious varmin.

People don’t commit suicide because they are not famous or rich or don’t have a partner. People commit suicide because they have NO-ONE. Yes, it is attention-seeking, but sometimes that is the only way to make people care unfortuanately.

Some people are born into families who make them feel secure and happy and truely care about them – which sets them up into loving relationships for their life! This is truely being rich. These people cannot truely imagine what it is like to be abused and to be scared and alone and they do not feel any compassion. Shame on them.

I have been abused for years and years by my father and family – I have tried to get in touch with organisations but NO-ONE seems to want to help. He won’t let me go to University and there are limited oppurtunities for social contact where I live so I am literally all alone and have to go through this fear and abuse day in and day out.

Sitting in four corners, trying every day to make somebody listen and waiting for the fear of when he returns is not a life u can appreciate.

Instead of sitting around in ur cushy little lifes saying omg, don’t commit suicide, why don’t u really try to understand the issues and actually try to get off your backsides and help people so that they really won’t do it.

I stumbled across this website looking to see how many Ibuprofen/time I could take without it damaging me – not for suicidal reasons; I’m in desparate need of a root canal or tooth extraction and I just can’t afford it yet. I’d taken 2x200mg tablets at 5:30 pm, 2×200 mg tablets at 11:30, and now it’s 2:30 and my tooth is hurting like crazy and I’ve stumbled across some of the 800mg tablets I was perscribed last year after a tooth extraction I had. I can see now that it’s not going to hurt me any, but I think I’ll wait another 30 minutes just to be on the safe side.

As for all these kiddos attempting suicide, it’s really not worth it. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Being 21 I’m no sage, but I do know that nothing ever stays the same. There’s nothing that happens in your life that cannot be changed somehow.

A guy who was like a brother to me when I was 7 committed suicide – he was 17. I saw him hanging by an electrical cord from a rafter in his garage. Also, 2 weeks ago my sister passed away from breast cancer at 29 years old, after having fought (and having been “cured” of the cancer) for a year and a half. I wish death upon no one in this world, and it pains me to see people trying to bring it upon themselves.

S_89 is correct, but only on a few accounts. Yes, many people are born into abusive or lonely families, but I CAN assure you that you will eventually free yourselves from whatever shackles you’re born into. No matter where you’re from, you can move. In the U.S. you can emancipate yourself at 18, and if nothing else join the military. Being shot at to me would seem a more appealing aspect than killing myself, at least I would be serving a purpose in the former.

And S_89, this comment is directed at you – a lot of us don’t get a chance to “get off our backsides and help people” because by the time we find out something is troubling you, it’s through a suicide note. Many suicide kids don’t reach out for help – you can see that apparent in these posts. “Help I’ve OD’d on Ibuprofen I’m scared” is not something that comes from a well thought through plan – it’s a spur of the moment kind of thing.

So please, please, please – before you take anything to OD, or grab a rope or gun or any implement of self-mutilation, please think twice. Nothing ever stays the same. I wish for no brother to ever have to be a pall-bearer for their sister, or any sister to ever have to read a eulogy for their brother; or for any parent to have to bury their child.

If anyone feels lonely enough that they DO need someone to talk to, my e-mail is guardfr4life at hotmail.com – I will be more than happy to lend an ear to your troubles if it means you will just stop and spend a few minutes writing them down before doing anything drastic.

heres a message to all y’all who have taken too much ibuprofen and are wondering if you should tell someone, on Friday I took ten 200mg and I told my mom cuz I wuz scared i would take more or do something else to myself(I was VERY depressed).My mom called poison control and they told me to go to the emergency room. we went, and after a couple hours they transvered me to the mental health area(the phsyciatric unit). I spent the weekend there…I never felt ANY affects of the ibuprofen, not even a stomache ache.Just a heads up…hope it helps you with your decision to tell someone.being in the phsych unit was probably good for me in the end although I was PISSED the first night. I feel your pain, you just want to end that horrible feeling, i did too, and i kinda still do but a doctor at the hospital put me on wellbutron and i know i will start feeling better soon…i am a little already!!!!!!!stop taking drugs that only temporarily make you feel better.If you get diagnosed with depression and tell them you are suicidal they WILL give you medication to help you.

hey. i know that alot of you on here just read these and joke about this, but its not joke

i took 40 advil a few months ago as attempted suicide. im still having bad side effects.
when ever i eat or take any kind of meds, i feel nauseous and have stomach pains. also, im afraid to go to the doctors or tell my parents because ive been to the mental part of the ER and its freaks me out. i just dont want to go through that again. im really afraid that ive messed up my stomach pretty bad.

does anyone (that takes this seriously and actually help me) have any advice??

Comment by curlgirl
2008-01-16 15:51:15

My advice is that if it really was a couple months ago that they wont send you to the mental area. If you tell them that was the last time you thought of suicide(even if thats not true) they probably wont.but yeah if you still feel that strong of side effects i think you should tell someone.If there is someone that you know who is a doctor or nurse that you trust not to overreact I would tell them first. Otherwise just tell your parents.Even if they do send you to the mental health area, like they did to me(see my previous posting),that is temporary and its easy to lie your way out of there by telling them your fine and not suicidal…tell them what they want to hear kinda thing….GOOD LUCK!keep me posted:)

I don’t understand why some of you guys are taking IBUprofen to kill yourselves……

Life can’t be that bad, it can ALWAYS be worse.

I take IBUprofen every day, have been for years, for headaches. I only take the lowest amount available, 200mg.

Comment by Kate
2008-01-18 12:00:16

It’s unlikely that your symptoms are a result of your suicide attempt. What other medication are you taking? It might be that the feelings of nausea etc. are related to feeling depressed and unhappy. Sometimes we manifest emotional problems physically. It’s worrying that so many young people are self-medicating their emotional pain with analgesics.
People who are habitually self- medicating may be addicts. An addict is a person who has a mental obsession with a substance or behaviour and a physical compulsion to act on the obsession regardless of the consequences to self or others. Heroin or ibuprofen, self-harm or crack. I suggest finding a local NA meeting. Or look at the NA website. Try and get some help. It only ever gets worse.

Ohh..Well…How many ibuprofen’s will it take to cause me some real damage o-o? Like..the amount that will end me up in the Hospital or something. Oh, and what if I took like..three and a half, and had just one Tylenol along with it? What will happen T_T?

Comment by Thomas
2008-01-21 09:12:38

I take 20 Ibuprofen, 1 Time a week.

Why? Because After lifting weights for 6 days straight, I want to relax.

It helps me sleep, it takes away the aches, and theres no downside to it.

Yes liver problems, but by the time I’m 50, medical advances will be advanced enough to cure whatever ails me.

By the way, it is IMPOSSIBLE to overdone on ibuprofen. Your body will reject it, and force you to throw up. So unless you are taking the maximum your body allows, as often as possible. One time trying to overdone CANNOT kill you.

Comment by chris
2010-01-12 07:52:48

ok Thomas,

I’ve been reading numerous sites similar to this, and of all the comments I’ve read.. and believe me its a lot.. you are by far the most stupid of them all..

20 Ibuprofen will damage your liver significantly… probably not right now, but in good time..

second, pain killers/ nurofen/ paracetamol and any of those alike drugs or OTC medicines actually hinder muscle growth or any of the weight lifting that you may be doing..

thirdly, it doesn’t take a genius to know that you don’t do weights more than twice a week at max. and by twice a week, i mean twice for the lower body, twice for the upper..

fourthly, whats to say that they will have found a ‘cure’ or replacement for a liver in the future.? you cant guarantee that..

finally.. if your taking that many ibuprofens.. dont expect to live a long life.. id be rather concerned if i were you

You people are fuckin funny man. Yo none of you are addicted to IBuprofen. You want to be addicted or try killing yourselves?? Take OxyContin that will be a fun trip for u all. Take about 10-20 80mg Oxy Contin and u got a good shot at dieing….Plus it will be a fun fucked up ride out of this world and life for you. You want to be addicted? Take Oxy Contin 1 pill 80mg every day for about 1-2 months youll enjoy the ride once more but when u dont get it after that 2 month period you;ll know the meaning of the word addict. Now then lets adress Ibuprofen. I in times of extreme pain (IE tooth ache severe tooth ache) 2 Ibuprofen doesnt do shit. Most of the time Ill take 4 then give it a half hour if it doesnt work I take another four. In this pattern I have taken upwards of 16 200mg Ibuprofen. Now then perscription Ibuprofen is 1 800mg pill the equivlent of 4 200mg over the counter Ibuprofen. Doctors will reccomend one to two of these as needed for pain especially after a root canal. So heres the point. 8-16 200mg ibuprophen on a once in a while basis as needed for sever pain will do nothing to you. Nothing truely harmfull. If you were to take it every day for a year like that then yes u could develop liver damage and internal bleeding. If you want to pass out dont take Ibuprofen go get nyquill or tylenol pm if you want to die…use a bullet you pussies….or else get a strong drug and enjoy your ride outta this life…such as heroine or oxy contin!!

You people- why take like 10 and then ask if ur ok??? obviously u need help. if ur in any doubt go to the hospital or ring nhs direct – you can find the number on the internet. ring 999/ 911 if u have take a lot. how can u say u cant tell ur mum/dad.. tell them! i think they wud rather know than find u dead.

life can be so hard at times whether you are suffering from struggles at school or even at ur own home…..there is always hope if u have faith and love for urself….then there would be no reson to hurt urself..life passes by everyone will die one day it’s best just to live it while you can. even if it sucks just move through…ok.. are time will come believe it or not believe me i know iv’e been times where i felt lost and purposeless but we all have a purpose..we have to find it through all the time we use to stress and hate ourselves.. we could use that time to find what we truleywant in life and of course it is not death….we all want a great life but it doesn’t come that easy…we have to search for it and figure what truley makes us happy but the real reson i came to this page is becuase i have a sister who is very depressed and doesnt want to live any more…..so i live for her i live to keep heading to her dreams ur not alone have hope if you have any questions or need someone to talk to my email is people_rival@yahoo.com i will be more then happy to listen to what is bringing u down…..smilee

All of you need help. I’m a nurse and was looking on the internet to see what would happen to a child who took too much ibuprofen. I didn’t expect to find a site with a whole bunch of people hoping to take ibuprofen to kill themselves. Don’t look on the internet for help. Get out in the real world. Find yourself a psychologist or psychiatrist or a social worker or a good friend. Stop looking to other people who want to hurt or kill themselves too. It doesn’t help!!!

OKAY. Ibuprofen over dose will not kill you in a few hours, not evena few days. and all you people postin joke comments, you should be ashamed. The drug will take time to pas through your body, blood stream and internal organs. Your liver is what cleans your body from toxins that could kill you. NOW if you take say 28 pills, they will be dissolved by your stomache and go through your body, and try to pass through your liver and kidneys, but they will be over worked by the pills, and begin to diminish and or become suseptible to kidney/ liver disease. YOU WILL NOT FELL ANYTHING AT FIRST BECAUSE YOUR MUSCLES WILL BE RELAXED. ITS A FUCKING PAIN RELIEVER. but in the long run, you might come down with kidney or liver diseaese, AND TRUST Me. if you really want to die, you are much better off getting a razor (no joke). but for those who want a painless death, ibuprofen is not the way to go. Liver disease for those of you who like sciense / health, is VERY SLOW AND PAINFUL. think of it as this.: it will feel as though your body wants to eat itself, and is succeeding. This page is posted by docters, and they would know. even the smallest over dose can be like a 26 once of vodka in like 5 minutes. NOT GOOD
I am not suicidle and would never try to kill me self. but liver disease is not fun, my mom died from it,

“Actually anything more than 400 mg (2*200 mg pills) is considered toxic and not recommended”

This is b.s., when I had a sports injury to my knee I was prescribed 1,000 mg pills twice a day by a doctor.

I have an old ankle injury that flares up every couple of months, when it does I take around 800 mg three times a day, no problem.

If you read the facts on Ibuprofen you will see it is the least harmful of all over-the-counter painkillers so the idea that it can be dangerous is a bit silly. Even aspirin is more dangerous.

I’m not depressed, or trying to commit suicide. I suffer from sever migraine headaches. When i was 7 (about 80 pounds i would say) my doctor proscribed 600 milligrams of ibprofin to be taken as needed when ever i started getting a headache. Last year my prescription ran out so i just take 5 (sometimes 6 if its really bad) of the normal 200 mg tablets (1000 mg). I weigh about 185. When you go to the emergancy room they give you 800 mg of ibprofin. I have never had a stomach pain from ibprofin a day in my life (But i do always eat something or drink a glass of milk when i take them). Those of you taking 2 o 3 tablets a day a, a couple times a day, you will be fine trust me.

2008-03-31 11:43:31

I have been worried lately about the amount of Ibuprofen I’ve been taking (16 of the 200mg tabs a day minimum: hence my reason for being here) so this article – and some of the responses – has been really very interesting.

No, I’m not trying to overdose deliberately. I have suffered from extremely bad and sometimes disabling pain in my spine after being hit by a car 12 years ago. However, because I’m still under 25 it’s very difficult for me to convince doctors of how much pain I’m in…even after needing one operation on my spine. Every bad episode, I again have to spend months convincing them to give me better pain medication.

My most recent episode has seen me taking more ibuprofen than I ever have before, and I survive on at least one whole regular pack of tablets a day (3200mg). I only take just enough to get by and be able to walk unaided, but never enough to take away the pain fully so I still have problems dressing etc. It’s tempting to take more so I can actually sleep through an entire night without waking up crying out because of th pain, but I worry about the long term effects of taking so much.

Thank you to Johnny Quest, as your comment has reassured me slightly :)

To everyone else, I’ve experienced no side effects from my obvious overdosing yet, so you’re unlikely to die if you’ve taken a measely 12 tablets. I don’t pass out or anything…at least then I would get a rst from the constamt pain. Don’t worry so much ^_^

Also, no one should want to take lots of ibuprofen. I would love to be able to stop taking it. Painkillers should be used for medicinal purposes only. If you want to end your life, trying finding someone to talk to – even it it’s only online. There are forums dedicated to people with problems to act as a support network for one another. They’re great people and you’ll be amazed how much of a difference it can make. Trust me :)

I took about 90 prozas at 20mg, 75 valiums at 10mg, 350 Venlafaxine or effexors at 75mg each… and 100 ibuprofens at each 200mg.

I now have an irregular heart beat and could go into tarchycardia at any given moment. I have had massive amounts of heart problems since.

Most people can easily tolerate up to 3200 mg of Ibuprofen in 24 hours. When I am in severe pain, I take 4 200 mg pills every 6 hours. You will be fine doing this for a few days if you are in extreme pain. For mild pain, stick with the recommended dose of 400 mg every 4-6 hours.

You could probably take over 40 ibuprofen pills at 1 time and still live.

dud you know some of these people have real fucking problems in their life.
They are young and neive and don’t know how else to cope. You fucking ass holes aren’t making anything better for them then by mocking they’re adolescent behavior. They don’t have a fully developed mind if they’re under 20. People make mistakes, take wrong turns in their lives. We all do!

Guys, please don’t do this to yourself. There are so many better solutions trust me. Everything will be okay. It doesn’t end here. There is so much to be learned, discovered, experienced etc.
I went through a phase also of attempting to hurt myself.

Suicide and Pain killers aren’t the answer. Find Love in the world in your heart. I know somewhere in this huge ass world someone would die inside if you passed, so please save a life by saving your own.

These are just some really sad and depressing posts!! why do you guys want to kill ur self so much. Take it from me it’s not worth it. I tried to overdose and ended up in the hospital throwing up charcoal and then spent a few hours in a mental hospital. That shit was fucked up and i wish i had never done it. Even though life is hard i know that things will get better and that i have a greater purpose in life.

Don’t kill yourself because once you’re gone you’ll never what could have been if you had just gotten help. Am glad to be alive because i now know that life will be good to me. Just be patient and trust and believe in God

Lastly, just think about the people u will leave behind that care about you.

Ok I took 16 ibuprofen (200mg) in the past 9 hours. I did do this as a suicide thing but am I really going to die? Am I going to wind up with a slow death that’s going to hurt? If I’m going to die I want it to be fairly quick. I could seriously be hospitalized for this? What if I later decide that I don’t want to die? Can I still live? How long until I actually do die of an overdose?

There were two bottles I loved but did not purchase. I now regret this. Have you and a loved one ever gone to Napa? It’s spectacular. Not very pricey either.Thank you for your time.

2008-04-29 23:32:43


The article clearly states that over 400 mg/kg is lethal, not 400 mg! This means that you need 400 milligrams per kilogram of your weight. In case you are wondering, this means that even for a very light person you would have to take a drastic amount to do any damage.

For instance a person weighting 50 kg ( Which is about 100 lbs ) would have to take 100 tablets, of size 200 mg, to even be considered toxin according to the 400 mg/kg standard set by this website. So please stop being stupid.

Comment by Yuri
2008-04-30 23:23:07

For anyone who says that taking 400mg is toxic, you don’t know your stuff. The “maximum” dosage recommended on the *bottle* is 3 a day, and that’s for the 400mg pills. Not the 200mg. 400×3 = 1200mg. THIS WILL NOT HURT YOU, unless you’re allergic to the medication. My mother’s doctor said the maximum dosage you should take in a day is 2400mg. This is if you have, say, really bad arthritis or such. That’s 6 400mg pills, or *12* 200mg pills.

As long as you do not do this regularly, it’s not going to hurt you. (I’ve taken about 2800mg for cramps before and was fine, key thing is not to do it regularly)

For all you suicide fanatics, if you think you’re going to kill yourself on ibuprofen and posting about taking tons of pills here, you’re obviously just doing it for the attention. Ibuprofen is a rather mild drug, hence why it’s over-the-counter. Common sense people, common sense. (I know, I know, really too much to ask for, as half the population does not possess any sort of survival instinct, but try) However, if you are in a lot of pain, don’t be afraid to take up to 2400 mg.

Bah, long comment, but I was bored, and you people amuse me. Cheers, and I hope someone who *isn’t* suicidal finds this post useful~

I am another of the folks looking to see if I was taking too much ibuprofen to compensate for dental work I cannot afford. I have been taking 3 200 mg pills twice a day… or 1200 mg/day. Not cause for huge concern based on what I’ve gleaned from this site…

… I have, however, started to have episodes of dizziness, nausea, a corona-esque blurring in one of my eyes from time to time, and disorientation. Hm. I suppose I shall consult my dentist/physician directly. I haven’t been taking the pills for all so long… maybe three months at a pace such as this. I’m a 29 year-old female, at 155 lbs.

When your body sends you these messages, you do well to listen…

The suicide notes are disturbing. I guess that even on sites for Vivarin or Robitussen there are folks wondering dosages to catch a buzz, pass out, or die. I must say that to see it on an ibuprofen discussion site was surprising (alarming, distressing).

Good luck to all my fellow uninsured, self-medicating kin. And to those of you who are suicidal — I wish you all the best as well. I was sexually abused by my stepfather from the time I was four until I was 15, and suicide never entered my brain. Perhaps I’m just not wired that way. At any rate, all this to say the ever-trite: it will get better. Your perception of reality is everything.

I take 4/200mg ibuprofen at least three times a day. My doctor knows and says 4 at a time is fine it equals 1 prescription strength dose. I’v done it for years for chronic pain and i have zero side effects. I don’t get what you are all talking about? I’m just glad to get some relief from my chronic PAIN.

Just befor you decide that you want to die just stop and think about your friends and family that you are going to leave behind , its no joke finding out your best friend or son or daughter or loved one has just commited suicide. As for takeing one tablet over the recomended dose this will in all probability not harm you might make you a bit sickly feeling . Also just remember you might be takeing all these tablets now but when are you going to get the overall effect it might be in 10 weeks or ten years , and during that time your life is straightened out but tough s..t its to late and your kidneys and liver are packing up giving you a painful death do you want this realy . Just give a thougt befor you do take over the recomended dose in the future because the only people who dont give a dam is the manufacturers of that pill because you to them are nothing all you are is someone putting money in there hands.

Consequences of Ibuprofen overdose: According to research institutes, Ibuprofen overdose damages your internal organs like liver. While in some cases it has been reported that it has result in a permanent liver damage, in other cases where the victim was taking the dose for a long and continued period it has resulted in organ failure one by one.

Some more side effects are unsteadiness, blurred vision, ringing in the ears, gastrointestinal, nausea plus vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain, probable loss of blood in intestinal areas or stomach or both, headache, agitation, drowsiness, incoherence and confusion etc. Sometimes more serious symptoms are also noticed in some victims though very rare such as seizure, gastrointestinal bleeding, metabolic acidosis, respiratory depression, hyperkalaemia, tachycardia, atrial fibrillation, coma, hepatic dysfunction, renal failure, cyanosis, and cardiac arrest etc. Until and unless the victim is allergic to ibuprofen, there is a slim chance that the victim would die from Ibuprofen Overdose.

Okay, I am assuming that the majority of the posters here are children so I am going to lay it straight to you. I know my stuff, ….listen up!

Ibuprofen is not a “get you high” or “suicide” drug. Not even a “pass-out” drug. If you are passing out it is because you are becoming toxic or too stupid to realize what this OTC drug is.

It is an anti-inflammatory. It gets rid of inflammation and swelling. Nice on menstrual cramps, pulled muscles etc. There is no such thing as tolerance to this kind of drug that I know of.

Bottles that you recieve OTC suppose to be taken in as small doses as possible, because it will EAT YOUR STOMACH OUT. …literally. It goes in your stomach and removes the acid, which it sees as inflammation and then moves down the tract. Now, for overdosing, how does this sound. I am not going to tell you what the max dose is, that would be irresponsible of me because you might prefer this death. BUT, here is what will happen. Your guts will start bleeding and you will be in horrible pain and bleed to death, but it will be slow, perhaps slow enough for someone to find you, take you to the hospital and then you will live the rest of what you think is a miserable life now under constant supervision and wearing a poop bag because your intestines are gone. Sound like fun?

Here is another little tip. It could happen if you play around with taking just a few everyday to find out. Then one day you go to the bathroom… and blood.

Grow up!

I took 12 ibuprofen tablets and a few fluoxetine when i overdosed. I still get pains around the abdominal area, feelings of sickness and diarrhea. I wake up sometimes after only having a few hours sleep feeling ill. Is this normal? Do i need to go back to the doctors?

I took about 8 Ibuprofen pills around September and ended up in the mental hospital after getting charcoal treatment. It sucked and it wasn’t worth it.

last night i was drunk and upset an downed about 15 nurofens, about 3 panedeine forte and some other antibiotics.. was treated in hospital, they made me drink a bottle of charcoal stuff that aparently soaks up most of the chemicals before they can reach organs. they took heaps of blood and i waited in bed for about 5 hours before they let me go home.

would not recommend this to anyone. it didn’t feel good at all.. and there’s better ways to deal with your emotions than trying to overdose on household pills.

ughhhhhh. okay. most of you people are like, what 15 years old? you think that you want to commit suicide because this cute boy in your class doesnt like you. you are all so young and guess what, life is what you make it. you need to find people that make you happy and your life will be so good. when i was that young i didnt fuckin drink or do drugs or any of that shit. your lives are SOO easy right now. just go to school and get easy A’s, chill out, whatever. When you graduate high school, then you will see how easy your lives were then.

on the other hand…college is fucking fun. if you want to get high, or trip out, in attempts to escape your lives or just have fun, try LSD, weed, mushrooms, salvia…something like that. Tripping is the most amazing feeling in the world and you will love it. And NONE of the drugs that I just mentioned have any long term affects. you will not die and you will not have any problems.

sit back, take 2 hits of good acid….smoke a couple of joints…and you will see that life is much better than you think. 12 hours later when your trip is over and done with, you will feel great and you will just think about how amazing your experience was.

i guess my point is that you guys are way too young to be taking ibuprofen to OD for whatever reason. if you guys just HAVE to be wild children and get high, then do the drugs that i told you about. you wont get addicted, you wont die, you wont get sick….YOU WILL SIMPLY LOVE IT

I took 6 paracetamol, 15 anadin and 43 ibuprofen with a bottle of wine at about 6pm, and i wasnt checked out till the next day at about 2pm, and they said i was fine. I was sick a few times but that was it. I hadnt eaten all day either. Every time i ask about it, the doctors say nothing would be wrong with me by now, that was 11 months ago.

Comment by Daniella
2008-06-22 17:36:48

Me again, i am a 19 year old and i weigh about 10 and a half stone. It’s a long story why i did it, but let’s just say it involves a fiancee, cheating, some real mind games and horrible stuff being said and done, and the fact that my family gave me no choice but to kill my baby when i was 3 months pregnant when i really didnt want to. That killed me. I may still be alive now, but im not the same, the person i was died when i went through all that. Genuinally didnt want to live anymore, had no idea about how much you had to take or anything. Didnt plan on doing it, but the emotions that were running through me at that time…you have to know the full story to understand it all..ive never been a person who believed suicide was the right thing to do, and believe me it took alot to get me over the barrier from an ok amount to take, to oh this is wrong, but once i crossed that, i could take as many as i wanted, and i felt my body trying to be sick as i kept having them, i hadnt eaten all day, drank them with a bottle of wine, my fiancee didnt care or tell anyone, i was with him, he just laughed, and said it deserved me right caus he could never forgive me for killing his baby, even though he knew i wanted it. I cried on the phone to him when he was standing outside caus the nurses wouldnt let him in, and told him i didnt want to, but he said it was for the best, i read stories to my tummy the night before even though it couldnt hear me, and he was there, yet he did nothing, and then he tells me he can never forgive me for killing his baby. Do you know how much that killed me doing that. It was like a week before my scan appointment as well, it kills me i dont have a picture. I still have the test, and i got a tattoo. Its a lilly with one petal as a broken heart and a b entwined round the stem caus i used to call my fiancee my bear and i was going to call my baby lilly. I didnt know she was a girl, but i saw 3 magpies three times in a row and sort of thought it was a spiritual way of telling me it was a girl. Anywho, the only thing i had to comfort me was a Dolly called Dolly ive had since i was 4, god i love Dolly. You could say i was returning to a childlike state or something, as thats the only way i feel safe and happy. So i took 6 paracetamol, 15 anadin and 43 ibuprofen with the wine. I was sick a few times, and i cant say im that well now either, plus it was only two weeks after i had an operation on my stomach, so i wasnt in the best health, and 3 months after the abortion. Friday 13th april, i will never forget it. 10th July was when i took everything last year. Doctors say im fine, probablly wasnt enough, but i didnt know any better. Does anyone think there may be any damage? All im worried about is my fertility. How much would it hurt if i was told i could never have children for the rest of my life, and that i killed my only chance of ever having what i know i want. Its not the same adopting because its the whole big tummy and being pregnant and feeling it grow inside you that makes it the magical thing that it is. Im engaged again now, to someone i love, im qualified to be a junior graphic designer, ive finished sign language level one and will be starting level 2 in september, im doing open learning alevels and then plan to go to univeristy, probablly to do something in teaching or law or psychology. Id love to live in Italy when im older, i have so many plans and ideas, but sometimes everything seems like such a struggle because i havent and will never get over everything that happened and it still haunts me and makes me cry now, and i get depressed ALOT, and i find it hard to concentrate on stuff and sometimes wonder why bother, but i wouldnt do anything again, because of what it would do to other people, and because even though it seems a struggle, i want to mke something of my life and try and be happy. I will never forget Lilly or anything from my past, but i have a fiancee i love now, and ive been an elf for the past 3 years every christmas in the santas grotto, will be doing it again this year and i work in edwards flares and reflex where i dance and serve behind the bar, not sexy dancing, but cheesy stuff to the ghostbusters and stuff, i was employee of the month, am reguarlly top taker, and ive made some of the best friends i could ever ask for, so things are on the up, but i have been hurt so much that that sometimes gets me off track, and no one can ever really know how each individual feels about stuff because everyone has different takes, but to everyone out there, i know nearlly everyone will have bigger problems than me, even though to myself my problem is a big one that has affected me, i just want to say dont give up, because if you try really hard things can gradually get better, even if it doesnt seem like they will. And dont take ibuprofen caus nothing happens other than feeling dreadfully ill and you ruin your body, and you’ll probablly still be alive, just even worse off than you were before, so its not worth it. It’s horrible being sick and feeling so poorly that you regret everything terribly. Anywho, ill stop rambling now. If anyone could leave advice or would like to talk or anything just email me at bearickle89@aol.com. Love Daniella. xxx

EVERYONE, IF YOU TOOK LESS THAN 40 PILLS YOU WILL PROBABLY BE ALRIGHT. IF YOU TOOK MORE YOU SHOULD SEE SOMEONE. Look, if your going to overdose ONLY DO IT IF YOU REALLY WANT TO DIE. If you want help because life is too hard go and talk to someone. If you want attention there are plenty of better ways than OD’ing. Don’t take ibuprofen if you want to die (and im not going to tell you what you should take either).
I know someone who took 25000mg (yes 25 GRAMS) of paracetamol. That was not good. But seriously if you want attention do it some other way. This is life were talking about. I know it can be hard but unless you’re 100% sure that theres nothing life can offer you you really shouldn’t be doing this.

If you want to kill yourself, OD on Acetaminophen, aka tylenol… it will be slow and painful, but you will have a higher rate of success. If you want to get high, breathe into a brown bag, smoke a joint, or take some narcotics. If you want to relieve some pain and inflammation, take Ibuprofen in large doses knowing that it’s not going to kill you or get you high unless you take several bottles of it at once…

for some odd reason i took 15 ibuprofen, then 25, then 35.

i had a stomach ache but shrugged it off and didn’t feel any of the other symptoms.

i am unsure as to how many milligrams they were but i don’t think anything over 300mg apiece.

i really don’t suggest trying to kill yourself with ibuprofen because it would take A LOT to kill you and you would go through tons of pain and most likely suffer liver/kidney damage.

hiiii. okay first, i think all u people are crazy that are trying to kill yourself on this shit, you really must have issues as a lot of people up there have said. but i somewhat pitty you all at the same time because u need attention and ur more likely to get attention from a stranger than someone u kno very well. anyway, i have a question & its not a dumb one. So i have extremely bad back problems + i have a cyst on my ovarie which give me painful periods and well the other day i alsto had a migrane, so i wus takin 2-3 ibpforfen every 3 hours not knowin that ur supposed to wait 4-6, and i did that for 3days cuz of how much pain i was in, and i think i did it on an empty stomach plus im on many perscriptions for my stomach. I was experiencing headache, dizzyness, chills, somewhat of a fever, diahrea, almost vommiting, and a really weak stomach that i cant eat that much. Shoudl i see a doctor?

OD on Tylenol kills internal organ, takes time not instant it’s a girly way to escape. Most of the time someone will find you and take your ass to the hospital pump your stomach and make you drink loads of charcoal, then send you to the nut house.
OD on Ibuprofen, kills your internal organ, usually your kidney, you go on dialysis (since you will be find out) all your life, have to watch your fluid and food intake it’s a miserable way of life. You will look ugly because of skin breakdown and will develop other chronic health issues.
Now if you are just plain scare to live your life and can’t handle dissappointment, you need to grow up. Life is not easy don’t worry no one gets out of this life alive!

And im still here. pills seem to be the best way out but half the time all you do is suffer. Feel like shit. Puke a few times and go on with your life. Once you get to the point where you think your gonna die you figure out you dont really want to. So look guys. For real. Before you do anymore stupid shit think about what your doing. If you dont die. What kind of condition will you be left in. Its not worth it.

Last night my boyfriend had a really bad toothache. We don’t have medical insurance so I told him to take some ibuprofen. I gave him four pills to take since the doctor had once prescribed me 800mg of ibuprofen for headaches. He kept waking up in the middle of the night from the pain. By 3a.m. he said he was scared that he was going to overdose. He told me had taken 17 pills. I am so worried. He had taken 5 more that afternoon too. The bottle said not to exceed 6 pills in a 24 hour period. He went to work today but says he’s having a lot of stomach pain(on top of the toothache) & he keeps on having heartburn & tasting blood. He had no intention of o.d.-ing but his pain was so bad. I’m scared…
As for a lot of people on this page, you need serious mental help! Life is hard & it sucks most of the time. So what! Deal with it & stop being such a pussy about it! If you hate it so much, change it by doing something with your life! There’s a lot of help out there & a lot of good things in this world. Go find them.

Therapeutic use
Low doses of ibuprofen (200 mg, and sometimes 400 mg) are available over the counter (OTC) in most countries. Ibuprofen has a dose-dependent duration of action of approximately 4–8 hours, which is longer than suggested by its short half-life. The recommended dose varies with body mass and indication. Generally, the oral dose is 200–400 mg (5–10 mg/kg in children) every 4–6 hours, adding up to a usual daily dose of 800–1200 mg. 1200 mg is considered the maximum daily dose for over-the-counter use, though under medical direction, a maximum daily dose of 3200 mg may sometimes be used in increments of 600–800 mg

I have been takin IB all day with tylanol as well 800mg tabes 1 to 2 at a time every 4 to 6 hours..and im fine.. Ive got a massive tooth ach and the flu ontop of that and have not sleep well in 4 days..and as for overdosing im fine,,minuse the freakin tooth ach..which half the time the IB and tylanol is even touchin….

YOu’d think that they’d tell you to not come close to hte threshold of when it would harm you, not at the exact time of it starting to fuck your body up.

I have degerative disc disease, I had surgery and have done very well since. Sometimes i have flare ups—my doctor told me to take FOUR 800 mg Ibuprofin 4 times a day for two days to knock out inflammation. I also do a heating pad and bed rest…this has worked well for me. I always eat something first, the pills can tear up your stomach. I have never felt any overdose symptoms, or a buzz or really anything, but the pain and inflammation do go away. However, i do get a little freaked out over the high dosage and hate to take the pills. It really is a shitload of meds. This has worked way better for me than Vicodin, tho. I have had to do this high dosing about an average of once a year or less. It truly beats a long -term course of therapy on Naproxyn or Skelaxin, etc.

I have just been reading peoples comments on this site and i cant believe how pathetic people can be. usually when people want to overdose they dont actually make it public they just do it. I have seen people when they come into hospital and end up in intensive care, so people who are being stupid and joking about taking overdoses need to pack it in cause its not funny its a horrible death and people who do actually have the tendencies to take overdoses need professional help as they must feel like there is no way out which is really sad. If u feel like u want to kill yourselves then speak to your GP dont be asking on the bloody internet this isnt the place to ask for advice. Its really not a subject to joke about and from reading some of these comments i really think people need to grow up.

I took about 50 200 mg tablets of Motrin/Ibuprofin last night. That is 10,000 mg. I only vomited a very little bit and approximately five of the tablets came out. I felt moderate discomfort in my abdomen and the emergency room did not pump my stomach, give me charcoal, or anything. I don’t recommend it. It is really just a waste. If you want to kill yourself, this isn’t the way.

All of you trying to overdose.. that’s just stupid. You have one life to live and you have to make the best of it. Overdosing so YOU CAN GET ATTENTION is not the way to go. You can harm yourselfs and may have a severe overdose and die. If you are trying to kill yourself.. then you obviously have issues and need to talk to someone. I care about all of you even though I don’t know you.. but just reading comments that you have written about overdosing and “how many till I pass out?” just pisses me off. Find some other way to get attention.. in a good way! Anything.. get your hair cut or something.-sure you can get attention by that WITHOUT killing or harming yourself.

i took 4 400 mg ibuprofen twice in like 4 hours. ( 3200 mg ) i had a panic attack and thought i was dying. Had to get rushed to the ER because my heart rate was up in the 160′s. ( 90 to 100 is normal ) basically a couple days later i was peeing a pinkish color urine and it was extremely uncomfortable. i think i damaged my liver.

i have sadly enough sat here and read all your comments, i must say 2 those people who have tried to overdose your all a bunch of fools, if your gonna try 2 kill yourself do it good and proper! not just for attention coz lets face it if under the unfortunate circumstances you survive the ppl close 2 u will pity u for the rest of your life. every time your near medication they will frown upon it or be on edge the next time your standing at a train station platform! im not too sure if i am any wiser than you people though! as i feel depressed and fed up of life, feel ashamed of myself for feeling this way, as i am only 22. i lost my grandad a yr back he was my only sense of direction the one who kept this family together now his gone i do feel there is no point of living, i am sitting here thinking of ways to kill myself. but maybe im a coward or do i just want 100% guarantee that whatever method i choose will finish me for good! any suggestions people?

i didnt know so many people tried this. i guess since this is annonyms ill just say the truth.
im 13- 14 in a month- and ive been feeling depressed for 2 years now. i know, i know, its stupid. i have good parents, a bit pushy for good grades, but they’re good and my sister is nice-ish too. i’ve got nice friends on top of it and i dont live in the ruts either. it makes no sense but i feel crappy every day but its pretty easy for me to fake a smile. i cut, not just the typical wrist. i try not to only cut my wrist; ancles, legs, feet, fingers so on. its easyier to make sure no one finds out about it if its not in the typical spot. and ive wanted to kill myself for about 1.5 years now. i bought two bottles of 50pills/400mg per pill. i tried 20 three nights ago; nothing so i did 30 the night after; nothing again. so i bought them and il be taking 100pills of 400mg per pill tonight. i dont really know why im writing it here. oh well. no one will read this anywas- its at the bottom of the page. …bye

i have been in the exact same situation when i was like 15 ..it is really stupid to go try kill yourself when you think about it you only get one shot at life and thats it so you should all live a little specailly the 12 – 15 year olds you really should not go near any tablets because even though you are thinking you are overdosing but probably thinking you arent at the same time you probably actually are … i took 35 pro plus 15 ibuprofen and a lot of alcohol and really i thought i would get ill but not as bad as what happened i was in the most HORRIBLE pain i meen actual torture i would never even think about taking more than 2 of any tablet now just incase i got that pain again honest its really bad but anyway think about things before you go taking tablets because you are doing it in the spur of a moment and the effects could stay with you the rest of your life and when you are suffering from kidney failure and stuff like that you probaly actualy will want to kill yourself. x

Only attention seeking people do the deed and then tell the story. As a medic, I regularly attend to the “overdose” in which the victim phones a friend after taking the pills. If you are truly suicidal, then you wouldn’t be ingesting the drugs and then asking for help. You would simply perform the deed and eventually someone would find you and then we would pronounce.
So, if you feel the need to phone or tell someone about what you’ve done or plan to do then chances are, you really don’t want to do it. So, seek help before hand and save the dramatics for something else.

you know… some people, -like me- actually come to a site like this for genuine information. then it gets polluted with nearly endless comments that are nothing but sarcasm, name calling and bullshit. its terrible. are you people actually taking 35, 40 pills at a time? and you wonder if thats BAD for you?
i hope its ok to take 3, when the directions say 2. im in terrible pain, leftover from a really bad bout of double pneumonia, that had me in the hospital for 11 days. my body has been through enough, and i actually worry if im harming myself by taking 3. 2 makes the pain tollerable. 3 makes it go away. but 6 hrs later, i have to do it again. its been like this for 3 months now. ive been to MANY doctors, and no one has any clue whats wrong with me. i can only guess its leftover from my time in the hospital. -or worse…

some poeple are genuinely concerned for their health, and want honest answers. not sarcasam, critisism, and statements intended for nothing but to freak people out.

Generally, Ibuprofen causes kidney damage. Tylenol causes liver damage. However, if you damage either liver or kidneys first, it will cause damage to the other eventually. As noted above, either type of damage is a horrible way to die – or you could live and have to be on dialysis the rest of your life, which is really a crappy way to live.

It’s perfectly normal for people in their early teens to be depressed – it’s just the big rush of hormones, mostly. You will get over it, and there are better ways to handle true depression than taking drastic measures. Suicide is a permanent solution for a temporary problem. Most people who survived a suicide attempt are glad they did, and usually wonder how they could have been so stupid.

If you think that people will mourn for you for eternity and that you will punish them by killing yourself, forget it. It a couple of months, they will only ocassionaly remember you, and then think of what a dumb shit you were.

, i haven’t read it all… but some bits made me laugh
taking loads of drugs won’t cure emotional pain,
it will just hopefully harm or kill you

and as for we all have family and friends who care…
not everybody does, people may have family
doesnt neccessarily mean they care, what if the person knows that
nobody likes them and they know that everybody they care about
will be better off without them, what if dying is sacrificing your life
so people you love and careabout can live theirs x

and from this it looks likeyou can’t die of an overdose of ibuprofen
xx love and hugs to anyone feeling suicidal, please you should talk to someone
you need help x

ok..so i know some people owuld say I’m attention seeking and all that, but the truth is i’m actually just asking for a lil bit of help or advice.
I’m 15. my dad sexually abused me when i was 9.
when i was 11 my parents got divorced due to my mam having an affair with the next dorr neighbour. my mam then go involved with a physically abusive partner. I’m a lesbian and realy struggling to come to terms with it and at school i got dicriminised against every day. i get spat at nd everything. my mam constantly argues with me, I’m bulimic, i sometimes hear voices, i self harm a lot and most of the tims just generally hate my life. the only thing i live for is my girlfriend. it feels as my life is over when its only just beginning. been to the doctore dozens of times nd they wnt give me anit-depressants or sleeping pills to help me sleep as i am under 16.
for the people on here tht re freaking out because they have took 3 or 4 200mg of ibuprofen…chill out.
i took 8 one day nd 7 the next and the worst tht happene is tht it nearly made me vomit.
i see a councellor and have just been told im being referred to hospital for proper phyciatric treatment. im scared shitless but i guess its just for the best.
ok so i think i may be addicted to ibuprofen. i cnt get theough the day without craving for them nd if i dnt have any i get soo stressed out. thing is when i take them i always take at least 4 200mg in one go, sometimes twice a day.
i know im seriously damaging my insides but i cnt help it.
i just want some advice maybe on how to stop taking them or something.
im really not doing this for attention. i know it may seem like i am but im not. just asking for a bit of help.
if anyone has any advice then feel free to mail me on ash_rockz_07@msn.com.
any contact will be appreciated xxx

Holy shit you stupid emo yanks!!

#1 Taking less than 10 will do nothing. So stop freaking out and overreacting!!! Try actually READING THE ARTICLE. It says anything less than 100mg/kg will not do any damage. If the average tablet has 200mg of ibuprofen, and the average person is 60kg, the average person would need to take at least 30 tablets to do any damage.

#2 Stop looking for sympathy/attention by posting here about how you are suicidal. If you were truly suicidal and not just looking for attention, you would not be trying to overdose on painkillers.

#3 If you are truly depressed: GO TO A SHRINK!! Surely that much would be obvious, even to total retards like you.

I was actually prescribed to take 800 mgs by my physician as an anti-inflammatory. I have to take 3 everyday for ten days. So far I’ve gotten six days in and my stomach is always upset no matter if I take it with food or not. I am just not used to taking so much medicine in such a concentrated manner. I’m worried they might have prescribed me something on the assumption that I turn medicine at the slightest pain. I actually take very little medicine, even when I’m really sick. Could I od on a prescribed amount?

The generalized statements about suicide attempts and the assumptions that you guys are making appall and disgust me. Not every act is a cry attention. Not every bottle of Iburofen choked down is a “fake” pass at taking one’s own life. Don’t post on a forum that covers a topic as serious as suicide attempts and drug overdoses if you are just doing it to make yourself feel good, or show off how big your head is. Anyone who is trying to glean serious information from this site has their time wasted by your biggotry, and anyone who has come here hoping to help themselves or someone they care about cannot gain an inch of ground by hearing your immature and self centered views.

Even if a suicide attempt is, as you would so self-righteously point out, it does not make the feelings that brought them to that point, or the seriousness of the entire issue lose any validity whatsoever. Growing up is a pre-requisite to mature converation.

The main thing that I want to add here is important to the people who have come here seeking information about what t expect for a friend or loved one who took a whole bottle. Very often, one who is flirting with the idea of suicide will decide to take the leap and will decide on what seems like the most gentle method, a drug overdose. Because, as some here have so nicely called it “the real shit”, which are prescription pain medications, valium, xanax, or the like are not littering the shelves of most households private pharmacy and therefore less readily available, and because they are quite pricey, it becomes more likely that the person attempting suicide will grab a bottle of “the fake shit”, like tylenol or advil and just down the whole thing. Luckily, a bottle of advil is not likely to kill someone.

I would have lost someone very important to me if it could. It wasn’t, as these negative commentators would define, a cry for help. She didn’t tell me she took them. She just popped and layed down next to me for the night as was surprised in the morning that she had woke up.

If someone has got you worried because they tried to kill themselves with a bottle of advil, breathe a heavy sigh of relief. They failed. They will not die. They should be kept away from alcohol fr a few days, because even a couple of drinks will make them feel like crap. More importantly though, they need the emotional support from you to let them know that life is worth living.

And you kids who are taking 25 advil at a time to fight a headache. Cut that out. the truth about ibprofen saturation in your nerves is that 25 advil work no better on your pain than 5 advil. instead, you are simply going to burn out your kidneys and ruin your liver. So, unless the thought of a life of dialysis appeals to you, cut your dose down. Your chronic pain is more likely linked to a dietery or sleep related issue. Fix the cause rather than treating the symptoms, and definately stop medicating with dangerously large continous doses of a medicine known to cause kidney failure if taken in those amounts and frequency.

You’re all f-ing retarded. Seriously. If you think taking 10 pills at once will kill you, then you’re an idiot.

To kill yourself you’d have to take at LEAST 30 pills at once, not spaced out over a few days.

Well I took around 100 pills of advil last night….And I’m here now. I take anywhere between 30-100 everyday. So clearly it’s not that harmful. And yes I do it as a suicide attempt. I want it to be slow and painful. i envy them who have cancer or AIDS. because they get to die slowly and actually feel something. I take all these pills and feel nothing. I’m so cold and numb to the world. I want to feel something. Even if it’s excruciating pain…. KAYTHXBAI! :D

I overdosed on Ibuprofen in december 2008. I took about 135 pills and they were 200 mg each. I was experiancing post tramatic stress and did not sleep for two nights. I took the pills with in ten minutes. I stayed awake for about 45 min after I took the pills. I threw up twice before blacking out. I was found 6 hours later throwing up around a toliet in the dorms. I was rushed to the ER and they pumped my stomach. They told me i was about 30 minutes from dieing from a heart attack so ibuprofen is very dangerous. I was in the hospital for three days and the reason is not because of my liver, it was my kedneys that were having the problem recovering. I am fine now but drugs are ment to help your body and to much of anything can hurt your body so be mindful of everything you put into your body.

I got my wisdom teeth pulled on Tuesday and have since then been taking 2 Ibuprofen 400mg ever 4 hours along with 2 codeine and 1 antibiotic.
I just read the bottle of Ibuprofen now (Sunday) and it says only take 1 every 4 hours and a maximum dose of 3 caplets a day for no more than 5 consecutive days.
Well I’ve had to take the antibiotic 4 times a day so I’ve been taking 8 caplets a day. So that is 3200mg a day instead of the 1200 maximum.
And it’s been 5 days.
I just read this now so I wasn’t aware of the limitations there. I just want to know, what’s the damage?
Should I go see a doctor just to make sure my liver won’t be failing anytime soon?
I didn’t know I was abusing the drugs so I’m just kind of concerned for my organs now, any help?
Thanks, H.

So I was depressed and took 120 of the 200mg tablets. The effects were terrible. I ended up nearly not waking up and when I did I puked for 3 hours straight. I don’t actually remember any of that morning. I was rushed to the ER in an ambulance and then I was in the hospital for about 2 days. It was very scary and as for permanant damage, I’m lucky I don’t have any. Ibuprofen overdose can be very dangerous and is a horrible idea. More then likely you will be found and taken to the hospital and then locked in a ward so that they can make sure you will not hurt yourself again. And to all the people out there who want to end their lives, that is not a good way to solve your problems. I just broke up with my fiance not to long ago and I have not been able to find a job. Also I had difficulty graduating from highschool. So I have been through shit and I know it seems like a way to solve things…. Maybe get some sympathy… But if your down because someone hurt you the best way to get back at them is not to kill yourself and make them feel like shit but to go out and make something of yourself. I have fallen in love with this phrase and I will share it with you now. Success is the sweetest revenge. So I’m sure you all are wonderful people, so please PLEASE do us a favor and do not deprive the world of wonderful people.

To all of you who keep saying Ibuprofen gave you headaches and stomach aches etc, youre dumb, it didnt give you them, it just you back TO them. See ibuprofen erases your memory when you put one in your mouth, so you forget why you took one in the first place. So if youhave a headache, and take some ibu, you will forget you had a headache, but then you will still have it, so you will think the pills did it to you. Also Ibuprofen can sometimes send you back in time. I once took 4 ibuprofens and went back in time 3 hours so my headache was gone, but then it came back when the 3 hours had passed again. Just thought idlet you all know the sever effects of it. Taking about 250 pills is dumb, you would go back in time like 10 days you idiots, and you would wipe youre whole memory you woiuldnt even be able to write on here. If you take about 14,000,000 ibuprofen pills, it lets you go back to the dinoasur times. Its soooo cool there.

What began as a distraction from my coursework has really brought something to my day.
its unbelievable how many people turn to ibuprofen in a crisis
from what ive read, youre all too young to worry about how many pills will kill you, some as young as 12, especially when youve taken less than ten
get some help, or take a moment to read some of the comments above you

Okay for the people dissing on a lot of people, some of us can’t help it. I live in wyoming and don’t own a gun…The guy I loved and said he loved me for 3 years cheated on me and my best friend tried killing herself. I couldn’t handle seeing all the suffering that was going on around me. It became unberable! I lost it one night and after slicing my arm, legs, and inside of my closet up quite a bit I took around 20 extra strength tylenol(500Mg each) and like 35-40 Ibuprofen(200Mg each). Just for more information I was 14 at the time and weighed around 100 lbs. Plus I was around 4’11 when I did it. No I didn’t die…obviously. but it did absolutely NO good for me. All it did was give me a HORRIBLE stomach ache and make me want to die more. I took them at night and couldn’t sleep at all. I ended up on the floor with my knees pressed to my chest because it hurt so bad and I felt so hot. The next day before school I took more Ibuprofen and even Midol(200Mg) just so I might have a better chance at finnishing the job. All that happened was made me have an even worse stomach ache PLUS have to go to school like that! My friend’s didn’t really notice they just said I looked really pale. I felt cold after the night went by. Cold, shaking, pale, dizzy, and confused. We had a sub in reading class and I ended up laying on the floor and slept until someone told me it was time for the next class. I didn’t even remember getting down on the floor. I through up by 3:30pm that day. Then felt better but trust me it isn’t worth it. It obviously doesn’t kill you so there is no point in it. Sure some might want the pass out dizzy part but trust me you do not want the stomach ache. It really feels like you are actually on the edge of dying and stuck in the painful stage…not moving on just staying in the painful state. HORRIBLE feeling. Please don’t try it…

I took 9 pills once because I was stressed out and depressed. I ended up going to the hospital and was given charcoal. I was considered a suicidal case at age 16. It’s the BIGGEST mistake of my life. I’m now 17 1/2. I suggest anyone not to commit something like this. I’ve tried to put it all in the past but it still follows me. Besides the help that I got at the hospital, I went to go see a psychiatrist. Definetly recommend that I everyone

My sister just had an overdose. She had about 24 tablets. She is at the hospital now, i was concerned but after reading all this it kind of sets my mind at ease. It is just so selfish to your family and friends to take your own life.

ibuprofen is for pain-relief. it isn’t for getting fucked up on, or ending your life. if you wanna get crushed, smoke some weed and drink a bottle or two of robitussin, if you wanna kill yourself, pull a knife on a cop, and if you just need something to muffle the pain, take a few ibuprofen.

I imagine the same can hapopen to a human being.

If your trying to die, don’t use ibuprofen, it’s damn near impossible to die from this stuff. I’m not putting this up here so people will be able to take overdoses for attention, but I’m in a situation where i just want everything to end, I have counselling, but it doesnt help, because although my problems may improve i will always be me, and thats what i ahte, death is the only way i can not be me anymore. Does anyone know what i can take? It has to be easy to get hold of, preferrably something that will knock me out?

i took 2 iburofen this morn about 12ish, 8 big pain killers bout hour ago, and i had 4 random tablets inbetween. i thought i wanted to die but i really dont, its DEPRESSION, dont let it get tp you, we can fight it together and we should,

life is worth living, think of the person you loved most in the world, imagine never seeing them again? its hard aint it?

this is a shame to hear so many young people have depression, being 14 i include myself, but everyone has something to live for, however im not attention seeking, i been in foster care since i was 5, my mum was raoed as a teen has 6 kids, recently had abortion, my brother is a druggy facing prison, and my foster home is hell,

life really fucked me up but im pretty sure ill survive tonight and if i do i promise never to do this stupid thing again, why would you want to waste a minute?

scary thing is i thought it was painless, but from what i read its not, so far im ok, but maybe ill get punished sooon? :(

it is true that some are attention-seekers ill admit, but some are truely serious when they say they need help. i appreciate all of you who have taken the time to show that you care for the safety of others, those are the people who truely save lives. and no it is not stupid to want to take your own life. if you felt what others feel you would understand so obviously most people have difficulty trying to put themselves in other peoples shoes because they have nothing to compare it to. yes life can be that bad!! and for all you assholes who are telling people not to be pussys, think twice, because you just might be pushing someone over the edge. and to those who are posting shit like ive just taken 5 advil i feel great, thats fantastic for you but who cares!

personally, i have never attempted suicide but i have come very close. i am getting help but depression is something that cannot be determined through a physical examination, though the medical community is trying. therefore, depression is extremely hard to understand and grasp for most. i didnt believe in it only until recently. it was in the back of my mind a couple of years ago because something just felt off, i was disconnected with my peers and it seemed to just sneek up. both my parents suffer from it, but my dad denied it for years, making me believe that it was something that was in the heads of those who were weak, but ive come to find that thats not true at all.

yes, get help, its hard because its a neurological disease yet many dont believe it. if something seems to be wrong, ask, do research. im still fighting it. ive cut myself several times. people do different things to cope. its not stupid. its not smart. but it is natural to try and help yourself when you feel dark or trapped, or when you dont feel at all. my dad finally made an appointment, but unfortunately he was unable to make it for weeks. its been torture having to live with the mask of a normal, happy person. but like many, my true feelings come out at night and ive desperately wanted to overdose just enough to knock me out, so my dad will truely believe me, so that someone will make me believe, not just tell me, that it will be okay. no one can truely believe those words until they become reality.

so please, dont tell someone theyre stupid or an idiot for not knowing how to cope with something that they cant control. the real idiots are those who refuse to understand. again, thank you to all of those who try their best to help those who need it, even when they themselves are just trying to survive. i am 17 and i want to die but there are people whom i love who will suffer the consequences, even if it seems they dont care. i do. do research it will give you insight and help you understand what you are feeling, because even if you may not believe it, there are people out there who feel similar to how you feel. thank you.

p.s. and to all of you who dont believe that depression is a neurological disease, you need to research it too. its chemical. its neurological. you wouldnt tell a senile old man to remember what he had for lunch would you? no you wouldnt. so dont tell depressed a depressed person to be happy because that is naive and ignorant. dont be ignorant, please.

Stop trying to be mellowdramatic..! It’s a waste of time and effort! Ibuprofen pretty much does nothing but make it hard to piss, then you just die a bit sooner… If you have a serious problem, do something about it, moping around taking over the counter drugs doesnt get you anywhere!

Everyone has problems, so if you want to kill yourself, just try and step back to look at the bigger picture… There are over 6 billion people in this world, and the great majority of those are at risk of an early death due to a plethora of other reasons; disease, famine, natural diasters etc… All these people, although in a ‘worse off’ environment are trying to survive!

For all of those asking dose questions, heres a little table of overdose values for you calculated using 400mg/kg guidlines… Obviously if they are 200mg tabs, then the overdose value is doubled.

Weight/ kg Number of 400mg tablets to overdose
45 112.5
50 125
55 137.5
60 150
65 162.5
70 175
75 187.5
80 200
85 212.5
90 225
95 237.5
100 250

Long term toxicity will no doubt, like in most biological systems increase exponentially with time… This toxicity is most likely due to your liver adapting to high ibuprofen exposure enzymatically, so in doing this, the liver inevitably reduces its metabolic capability for other compounds such as benzopyrene which does cause a problem…

Comment by Hey Paramedic!
2009-04-16 11:23:01

Obviously, you may have some medical background, but you know nothing of psychology.

1) Taking pills to kill you, as you should know, is not instantaneous. People may realise during their attempt (e.g. carbon monoxide poisoning) that they don’t want to die. If you take a load of pills, lie there for an hour, and then realise you’re not sure if you really want to die, it doesn’t make you ‘attention seeking’.

2) ‘Attention seeking’ is a major sign that there is something wrong with someone, or an emotional imbalance. If you want attention, you want it for a reason, and in a lot of cases there is a very good reason.

Also, for a ‘paramedic’ you’re pretty callous. Change of profession, perhaps?

normally when i have back pain, I would take 10-15mg hydrocodone or oxycodone. since i’m out, i took some motrin. I took 800mg about an hour ago and my kidneys started to ache, so i got to googling. (I’ve had kidney infections, so I know when my kidneys hurt).

about a month ago now, i was going through somehting where i felt really depressed. During my lunch break i walked all the way home and took about 10 ibuprofen. Later that night i was under a lot of stress and was kind of bummed that nothing happened. ( I didn’t want to kill myself, i just wanted to escape or something….idk what i was thinking…i wasn’t in my right mind.) So i had a large glass of gingerale and took about 10 ibuprofen again. Then i had about 10 plaquenil maybe more…. I went upstairs and lay down, and still nothing happened to me. So i went and took about the same amount of each as hte first time, maybe a little more in an angry attempt to feel something. Then i went to lay down again and i started to fell nauseous about half an hour later. I was getting dizzy and so tired, i was sweating and shivering and shaking like you wouldn’t believe, and i had hte worst headache. So i went in the bathroom and threw up about 12 times in those next 24 hours. Ofcourse i started to panick and was feeling guilty. i really wanted to tell my parents but i couldn’t, i knew they wouldn’t understand. So they just thought i had the flu, and i felt better again within the next week. But since then i haven’t told anybody. I feel like theres no one i can talk to. But I’m supposed to be taking one of each of those pills everyday and i haven’t since, because every time i think about it i feel nauseous and start gagging. I just need some advice now. I know i need to take my pills, but i can’t. by the way i have Lupus. Just a minor case. and i’m 15, and weigh 110 lbs.

Hey peoples.

Wow I agree with Human but i also agree with those who have spoken. Most who are serious about overdosing will not write about doing so online, though there are some who have done so. I’ve tore a few tendons in my ankle so i take 800 IBU thingy. I came over here to see if i was past my limit before it became dangerous to continue to take, and I think you all, those who were serious that is, for your information. I feel much better knowing that i am not doing damage to my liver and other aspects

Well i have taken over 100-200mg (20,000mg) of ibuprofen before on several different occasions…
nothing really happened…not that i physically noticed or anything…i seemed fine…i didnt vomit…i didnt fall asleep…it appeared to do nothing to me. i could walk normally. i would talk normally. i wasnt confused. i never went to the hospital. but now i dont think my liver is doing so well beccause my eyes are yellow and i dont sleep normally and my chest (liver and heart) always hurt. and when i say always i mean everyday all day. it sucks. so i recommend not to take more than the bottle says to take. and afer this and much more that i have been through with pills…you would think that i would have stopped taking pills…but i havent…i have tried many many many times over the past year. im trying to stop now. again. but its not easy. at all. so dont start.

The effects of an ibuprofen overdose start to kick in slowly, after months of continual abuse. For a start, you have to have been taking them on a more or less continuous basis, in a high dose, for months or even years. Secondly, if you are hoping for a quick and painful death then think again. Ibuprofen will cause liver failure, which will result in your skin turning yellow and excessive weight loss, followed by probable death. An ibuprofen overdose must also be treated within 60 minutes of the appearance of symptoms. More often than not, oral charcoal is used to stop your body from absorbing it. Your liver will repair 95% of the damage you do to it, which is why people attempting an instant suicide using them generally fail. I would suggest ‘seeking help’ to you all like some wellwisher, but I’m going through depression too and I know how patronizing and useless ‘help’ can be when you are having a bad episode.

I feel fine, still depressed but fine in myself. Will I be ok? I’m scared of ringing the doctors or talking to my mom. I don’t really have enough confidence to speak to anyone.

Please just help me.

I took a total of 1800 MG today because of cramping after my LEEP procedure and still have pain from it so I was afraid to take more, the doctor prescribed me 800mg of it and told me to take 3 day… I’m pretty sure I’m all set even though I was scared at first. Thanks for the laughs. Get help.

I don’t know if anybody will respond, but it might help if somebody does…

I’m 13. Last time I went to the doctor’s (beginning of April) I weighed 103 pounds. Ever since January I’ve cut myself. For the past two years I’ve been suicidal and I’ve been told I don’t eat anything close to what I should be eating. Sometimes I sit there and hope that one day I’ll cut a little too deep and it’ll all be over; I’ll die. Other times I don’t want to see all of that blood so I take pain killers. Advil, Aleve, Tylenol… I don’t pass out. I haven’t been hospitalized. I don’t end up vomitting, but I take so many. I don’t know what to do. I just want to die, but nothing’s working. I can’t tell anybody because they’ll tell me to go to a counselor and I’m already going to the school counselor and a therapist outside of school, but all they’re trying to do is put my family back together. I need someone to tell me what to do…

ok for those of you that want to know what ibuprofen will do to you is taken to try and kill your self. I took 230+ pills of 200mg so a little over 46000mg. the only thing that happened was:
1. I still woke up the next day and with a head ach
2. Started felling like I had the flu (felt warm and cold)
3. You will get the runs (your body will try and get it out of your system)
4. You will vomit out what your body can not ingust.
5. you will sleep a lot ( and still wake up)
6. you will telll yourself that sucked and life goes on

So it all comes down to ibuprofen will not kill you

I would like to state the fact that the word would be a better place if comments were just disabled from this site. Seriously people? “Imgoingtokillmyselfwith20ibu” no, it doesn’t work that way. Unless you are currently indiapers you are NOT going to die. Unless you continue this as a habit of 20 a day for months you will doubtly have serious damage done. If you are reading this after you have taken 20 ibu, take another 200 or 300 if you plan on dying before mommy comes to wake you up in the morning and she just thinks you’ve been smoking weed. Ibu is not the drug to take if your trying to kill yourself. I thought back in middle school if I took 40 (assorted) pills before I left for school I could really hurt myself. I ended up with my head in the toliet and the worst high I’ve ever had.

My bottle of 200mg Ibuprofen says not to take more than 6 tablets every 24 hours. That probably means it’s safe to pop a few more than that, but if you’re really going for pain relief (and not to knock yourself out or cause yourself permanent organ damage), just ask your doctor. It sounds corny & like a waste of time, but it’s probably worth it. You might end up getting prescribed some percocet or something else that can actually kill you if you OD.

Some of you people are so paranoid! I get awful migraines so I take 14 200 mg advil 2-4 times a day. I’ve been doing this for years. (there Are days when i don’t take any) I’m fine. It’s ibuprofen not opiates. Stop thinking it’s time to call poison control and go have your stomach pumped.

i just blended 120 advil liquid gels into a smoothie with a banana and some frozen strawberries, as well as milk and some frozen yogurt. I split the smoothie with my cat who weighs at least 20 pounds. I weigh about 185 pounds. What will the effects be on me and my cat?

Okay first of all
those who take ibuprofen for headaches
ibuprofen can only help with muscle pain and inflamation
second IT CANT HELP STOMACH ACHES in fact overdosing actually causes stomach aches
next del your retarded with oxycodone all you need is one, and yet again if its not muscle or joint pain advil wont help no matter how much you take
would you all just read the fucking labels of the drugs you take? they say it on the damn bottle, im sorry but you are all incredibly stupid…

All of you that think you are going to die from an over the counter pill like ibuprofen are fucking retarded. You wont die from taking too much of it, you really wont. Take as much as you like and don’t worry about your liver. If you want to kill yourself do it the right way, with a gun or with drugs that actually DO something. “OMG i took ten ibuprofen and i think im going to die!” SHUT THE FUCK UP. I’ve had bad sore throats where i literally took entire bottles of the stuff. Guess who is still alive and kicking? I am. This is just more health-ed bullshit that you get from highschool. “drugs are bad, they will kill you” I know people that rail coke and roll on e everyday for years and they literally have no side effects. Go do what makes you happy, if you hurt a little more than usual, go for gold, take as much advil as you want. It wont do jack shit. Get some oxy or some viks or even morphine if you have the the hookups if you want to kill your pain. Those are drugs you actually have to worry about. Oh if you want a cool overdoes try tripple c’s. You trip balls for a few hours and then nothing. Totally awesome :D

Okay, for anyone who is freaking out about an overdose…QUIT!! A few years ago when I was 17 I took 80+ pills in a matter of ten minutes. The result was a week of puking and pure misery. Ibuprofen will not kill you (unless you are allergic), so if you’re wanting a quick fix for your miserable lives then don’t go to ibuprofen. After a major overdose you’ll wake up puking and realize that you’re a complete idiot. Been there, done that, don’t recommend it.

What’s so absolutely disgusting is that Marijuana works so, so much better than Acetaminophen, Ibuprofen and Aspirin and it’s infinitely harder to overdose on and it’s illegal. Politicians make me sick to my stomach.

I was always an introvert, and being nutured with a abusive mother throughout my life has been percieved as a blockade in all my dreams i wished to pursue. I’ve been chocked with belts my moms hands, had knifes pointed at me, kicked, punched, slapped, whipped with coat hangers and metals, humiliated by my mom when she’s drunk in front of friends; my life with my mom has consisted of screaming, hurtful words, and abuse, and i’m still living my unstable equilibrium i call life. I’ve attemped suicide over and over, still drawn between fear of not wanting to kill myself or to escape the pain at the belief that my mom hated me and nothing was going to change that factor in my life so I would think everytime I get near the medicine cabinet “If mom’s going to continue this endless shithole, what’s the purpose in living?” or “Who else is she going to beat up now? I hope she blames herself for the rest of her shitty life..”
I haven’t popped as much pills as I tried strangling myself or hacking at my skin with the kitchen knives. Most I popped was suprisingly only 13…. and I was quite happy for the past 2 days. After my mom had screamed at me for coming home late(i wasn’t even late, it was a half day..), threw all the dishes, smoked in front of my face to spite me, poured beer on my hair, and when i went to go wash my hair in the sink she pulled my hair out and started pulling on my hair. I never usually retort to my mom or fight back cause it’s just developed in to common sense if i do shit like that i’d be in a deeper yelling session and she wasnt hurting me as bad as she usually does. But all that built up frustration that I usually get out by doing yoga or listening to music was building up like a wildfire and I pushed her, hard. My mom hit the bathtub, clearly drunk and having no support, I felt like a monster, I felt like the thing I hated the most, I felt like my mom. My mom even though she hit the ground, was okay (thank god) and went back to sleep but cried herself to sleep. My sister heard what happened and started crying which made me feel more like a monster, only my mom made her cry.
I grabbed those Ibuprofens and popped 13, not thinking of anything else but to make me drop dead and not experience the stinging in my heart.
but a week passed, nada happened, I was happy nothing happened cause whom else would take care of my sister? my mom would clearly abuse her more if I was gone….. And soon i’m going to be 18, I can pursue my dreams finally and be free…. And most importantly what strayed me from killing myself was discovering God, someone who would love me no matter my flaws nor the sins i’ve commited, only if I accepted him in my heart, I was tired of balancing my life on my mom when I got home, I wanted someone to rely on, someone to cherish without being hurt, I wanted guidance in life that wasnt saying that I was some piece of trash and that I was going nowhere, I really really wanted that one of a kind love I never got from my mom..I promised myself I would never hurt myself or anyone after I got Jesus Christ in my life.

u all gotta b shitting me. trust me i completely understand more than u could all possibly know. i too was addicted and at one point i did cut myself, but u need to realize that ur hurting the people ulove more than just urself. ur loved ones dont want to find u some morning because its really hard on them to know u did it to urself. they’ll blame theirselves and they too may do the same things to rid themselves of the pain. just please remember that.

Don’t believe everything you read here. When I broke my collar bone I was prescribed an opiate based painkiller (can’t remember the name now) which I had a violent reaction to. My doctor switched me to a 1000mg dosage of Ibuprophen, which I took at least once a day. I had no adverse side effects.
I’ve been taking a 600-1200mg dose now for my the pain of my recent work injury (torn tendon). I find it to be a very effective painkiller.
It is certainly much safer than any opiate painkiller, and carries no risk of dependency/addiction.

Just my two cents. YMMV

I’m 16 too. I care! Do you need someone to talk to? I’m here for you. I am recovering myself from suicidal thoughts and I never want to kill myself anymore. But I know how tough it is! Please don’t kill yourself. I could say all sorts of things abbout how it is a permanent solution to your temporary problem…things will not stay this way forever!
But I honestly know how you feel so I’m here for ya…if you need someone to talk to ok?

About Ibuprofen, is this 400mg/kg if you take it in one go?
A few years ago I was an idiotic youngster and over 2 weeks I took about 20 ibuprofen (sometimes more, sometimes a little less). This resulted in me being ill for a long weekend. now, 4 years later I had a great party but with a good long drinking session. The next morning I woke up with a painful liver, and now, day 2 its still hurting a bit.
Could this be because of the ibuprofen?

Come on people, can’t anybody do the math. 10 ibuprofen AREN’T going to hurt your. READ: 100mg/kg. Over-the-counter ibuprofen are 200mg each. To reach the minimum overdose level a 180lb person would have to take 40+ ibuprofen. A 250lb person 60+. Those are the safe, you’re screwed up and super sensitive levels. The overdose level isn’t considered until 400mg/kg. That’s 162 for the 180lb person and 223 for the 250lb person.

Read the crackhead’s story. 9 (minimum) ounces of alcohol and plenty of cocaine. The alcohol alone is enough to get some people sick (not heavy drinkers). Let alone combined with crack and the likely under-exaggeration/down playing in the story. The lousy 4g over 8+ hours of ibuprofen did NOTHING. Remember, ibuprofen has a half life of ~2 hours in your system. So after 4-6 hours, you’ve completely metabolized more than the recommended dosing.

Also, I was PRESCRIBED 2x800mg pills every 4-6 hours as needed for knee pain as a CHILD. With lawsuits and CYA doctors, do you really think 20 pills at 1/4 strength over 24 hours are going to hurt an adult?!?!?!

so I’m thirteen, in middle school & all ready I feel like a faiure.
everyone says keep holding on things will get better but I’ve lost everybody.
my bestfriends, my families love everyone except my boyfriend & I just don’t wanna live anymore. I’m scared to “do it” it though, like commit suicide but I think I’m going to. the only
thing stopping me at the moment is my boyfriend of six months, we’ve already been through
so much together & that would break his heart & my grandmas the only other person who
probably even cares. if you have any advice please help!

Everyone who wants to hurt themselves needs to stop playing around and get HELP. If my friend had gotten help with her PainKiller addiction, she would still be on this Earth,

I’ve been considering overdosing for a while now.
Considering my used to be ‘best friend’ has started telling me to just do it. and has posted everywhere that i should just do it.
I’m going to take 40 x 500mg Ibuprofen tomorrow. I don’t care if I die. And If I overdose then maybe the hoe will wake up and realise that it’s not funny.

hey, by the sounds of it Ibuprofen isnt that useful if you want to kill yourself. Instead why dont you go to a doctors or talk to someone, everyone gets down days and weeks and months.. it passes. And those who are just doing it for attention, everyone already understands, and somtimes you want people to notice you but this isnt the way to do, its not healthy to start with and also it gives other people the impression they should do it too.
Also, ODing because someone told you too? do you really want to put that on their shoulders? and also give in to them?
everybody is a wonderful person and we should all try atleast to live a great life. We all have our bad parts and depression and feelings in general, some are better at hiding it. But really, you dont get attention after you die. Not the sort you want anyway.
