    My friend is incredibly depressed and just called me crying saying she's taken ten paracetamol in around half an hour if not less. She feels a tiny bit sick and slight tightness in chest. I'm really worried PLEASE REPLY ASAP PLEASE
    I don't know if this is right place to post at all can someone please tell me if she's safe or not so I can get round and help her?

    I'm highly recommending getting her to the emergency room ASAP or call your local emergency number!!!!!!

    be calm, and tell her to get to a hospital if shes feeling some adverse effects. try to take it easy, 10 paracetamol isnt hardly enough to kill someone in the least unless theyre allergic to it, or the pills were the size of quarters. make sure she sees a doctor though, cause you can never be too sure.

    How is your friend Jessie? Even if she did not get medical attention, please have her go in and have bloodwork done to check her liver. Chances are she will be fine, but liver failure is not something you want to mess around with.
