hi ,20 paracetamol tabs form a toxic dose , it can damage liver .any way if 1 wk is over she s out of danger now. N Now 10 Ibuprofen can also harm her , consult a local Dr for follow up.
Bt if she is doing it repeatedly she needs help of a psychiatrist for councelling and to come out of this suicidal thoughts and solve her problems.Her well wishers relatives and friends also have a great role to play by showing their love and care to her.
