These drugs having very high theraputic index, usually tab cetrizine having 5mg drug..and 150mg of cetrizine having only drowsiness in adult n irritability in children .same applied with avil.
these antihistaminic drugs not havng any major adverse effect on taking high doses. So that was the reason of that person ws ok ok after takng this.
But the question arise why he want to do sucide and there is much more chances to do it again by him... so counselling n psychiatric opinion is must for him..
lyf is not past and future...but lyf is only present.. so forget abt d past... live present and alwys having hope for future...
God bless u..
