Suggest the course of action in case of Butalbital-Acetaminophen-Caffeine overdose
Induce vomiting if possible.
Thanks for your query.
It is better to induce vomitting (with Ipecac syrup etc) and throw the tablets out. Ipecac syrup is available over the counter.
Butalbital overdose can be serious in your wife's case. Though the CNS depressant effect will be countered by Caffeine. But if you see her incoordinatiing the walk, confused, staggered walk, slow speech, sleepiness, high BP, etc then its better to visit the emergency room.
Hope I have answered your query.
