Brief Answer:
Needs close monitoring.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The intake of naxdom 500 paracetamol and diclovin in overdose usually causes symptoms like nausea, drowsiness, breathlessness, light headedness and hepatotoxicity.
If there is worsening of symptoms like difficulty in breathing, breathlessness, salivation from mouth, unconciousness, etc then you need to attend an ER immediately.
If the symptoms are mild then you can self monitor her for any deterioration of symptoms and give her plenty of fluids orally.
You can give her some activated charcoal for symptomatic relief. The symptoms will gradually subside in 4-5 days.
You can get a blood test done for liver functions and complete blood picture to rule out any hepatotoxicity and bone marrow depression caused by these.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.

Hi, My father is suffering from Amyloidosis with renal involvement. His legs will be swollen everytime. Have consulted with few doctors but its not yet identified if its Primary or Secondary type. Which test will make that clear ? He has already gone through Bone Marrow and Kidney biopsy. Some where on internet it was suggested that Cat s Claw help in reducing the Amyloid, how true is that ?
