The main ingredient in Crocin is actaminophen or
paraacetamol. If the tablets are 500 mg. each,
the recommended dosage is upto two tablets four
times a day, that's eight tablets in 24 hours.
If a person does not have any underlying kidney
or liver problems, this amount is fairly safe.
Excess acetaminophen can cause serious liver
damage especially in children.
I understand "D-Cold XXXXXXX belongs to Ayurvedic medicine
if I am not mistaken and contains lots of natural ingredients
probably not harmful.
You are only twenty years old and I assume fairly healthy.
In your case, I don't see any serious damage that can occur.
The main thing is, drink a lot of fluids (Water,Juices) to flush
your system. You can also take some charcoal capsules 1-2.
This might help to bind the toxins.
Always, follow the label instructions and ask your doctor if
you are not sure about how much and how often to take the
drugs, even if they are over the counter ones.
Do not do this ever again please !
Wish you good health.
