Is there anyone who knows about paracetomol toxicity please? I am an alcoholic who stupidly took 2 paracetamol a few hours ago, i am really panicking now because ive looked on the internet and it says that this can be toxic and fatal. what should i do? im panicking now, is it worth ringing 111, dont want to waste their time. Please advise.

Do you feel any discomfort (apart from stressing out)?

I would call your gp and ask them. Paracetamol and alcohol is generally not a good idea but I have no idea about dosages and I don't think you should be asking internet ran some.
Dakota paracetamol liver damage takes a couple of days to show up which is why paracetamol overdoses are so scary - people don't seek medical advice until its too late.

It's going to depend a lot on how much you've drank recently and how much paracetamol you've taken. Call 111 with that information. All the best.

Ring 111 and discuss it with them, you're not wasting anyone's time. Hope you're ok flowers

You're within the normal safe daily dose so it will be fine.

111 might not be a bad idea to reassure yourself, and talk through things?
