Thanks for the query,

Well, you took 3 combiflam and 2 paracetamol, it means, u took excessive dose of paracetamol, because the combiflam consists of paracetamol and ibuprofen.

The over dose of paracetamol may cause liver damage, the maximum dose of paracetamol is 500 mg thrice a day, but in your case it was around 2.5 grams, please do not take this combination without any supervision.

Now what you will have to do---

1- take a course of antibiotic,.
2- Take antiinflammatory, anti pyretic like paracetamol.
3- Take an antiallergic.
4- vitamin and mineral suppliments.
5- Take plenty of fluids to maintain hydration.

Take all these medications. under supervision of your physician, in titred doses.

Dont worry, it is a minor coryza and you will most probably be all rite in next 5 days.

Hope, this will help you, and i am ready for future follow ups ( if any).
