NHS Direct mormally quite quick - but in mean time call casualty at local hospital - have done this before when I thought I had accidently overdosed and they were helpful - so try them -(think number in book) what is your local hospital?

Angeliz · 12/12/2003 22:54

i'd second that, call Hospital, i'd also be tempted to wake him up properly and ask him!

get him to a and e now twiglett
just in case
better safe than sorry.

lyndsey66 · 12/12/2003 22:59

He is going to be fine - probably just a bit sleepy - but if you dont take him to a & e you will be worrying all night probably! So I would take him like doormat says - it will put your mind at rest

CountessDracula · 12/12/2003 23:14

I should get him to a and e too - poor you what a nightmare.

If it's any consolation I think that it's ok to have quite a lot of nurofen, I take a lot for my arthritis sometimes. It's paracetomal that's really dangerous, thank god it wasn't the calpol.

Big hugs to you ((((((((()))))))))

twiglett, i am so releived for you and your little boy! Have been worrrying about you and am so glad you're all o.k

I used to work for the drug safety department of Boot (whi mke nurofen). We used to get massive overdoses reported to us and the patient made a full recovery. Unlike paracetamol it is almost inpossible to kill yourself with ibuprofen. ODs can cause some damage to the lining of the stomach. Allways important to check it with the medics tho. Glad your little one is ON.
