Hi ,

Thanks for your query.

Motrin (IBUPROFEN) is generally considered as safe drug but 8 tablets(of 400mg strength that is 400*8=3200mg) can cause a serious health hazard.

If you had noticed any of the following symptoms :
1) severe stomach pain
2)coffee ground-like vomit
3)unusually fast or slow heartbeat
4) trouble breathing
5)extreme drowsiness
6)loss of consciousness
7) seizures.

Please visit a ER as the above symptoms indicates the over dosage of the drug Motrin.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any follow up queries I will be available to answer them.
