Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am 18 years old. What if I have six tablets of 500 mg Paracetamol (Crocin advance) and seven tablets of 500 mg Mefenamic acid (Ponstan forte) in one go (within five minutes)? How bad will it be? What will the side effects be?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

This dose is really too high. You should not take medicines like this without a proper prescription from your doctor. You may have acute liver failure. Stop them right now and take a high-carbohydrate diet for the next five to seven days. Do not do this in the future.

Regards.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
