Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Norethisterone is progesterone-like a hormone, usually used to correct menstruation-related problems. It is never taken in such high doses. Taking such a high dose can cause a lot of unexpected side effects, including breast enlargement, pain in the chest, nausea, blurring of eyes, dizziness, and fainting, etc. One should not take such high doses. These type of medications should not be taken with out proper prescriptions. Now you will have to wait for a day or two till the whole drug goes out of the system.
