hello,
taking too much of dispirin can cause aspirin poisoning. go to a general physician and go for a test to find the plasma salicylate level to get a picture whether you have got acute aspirin poisoning so that you can be treated accordingly. better dont delay. avoid using painkillers without prescription. take care.

I m a 22 year old male. I am currently taking adderall to treat adult ADD. About two days ago I accidently took an extra dose of adderall maybe an hour after taking my first dose in the morning. I m only suppose to take one dose per day. I figured I would be ok since my dosage is only 10mg per day and I knew that many patients are prescribed 20 or higher. I went to go work out and as I was exercising I experienced what I think were heart palpatations. My heart seemed to skipped a beat and then began to flutter. I sat down for a few moments, went back to normal, and cautiously finished my work out. Since then however I ve noticed some signs that concern me. I feel minor and temporary aches and pains in my chest and arm. I feel tightness in my lower jaw. I ve felt weak and tired. Just this morning I had some minor stomach cramps and my stool was looser than usual though I wouldn t call it diarreah. I checked my blood pressure and it s been high (I m usually a healthy person and have never had high blood pressure before). Right now my blood pressure is 134/74 but it s gotten as high as 140/83. My resting heart rate has stayed pretty low however (between 58 and 70 beats per minute). Anyway I was wondering how sever these symptoms were, what I should do about it, and how long they re likely to last. Sorry this is so long but I d appreciate some advice. Thanks

I have accidently given overdose of paraetamol to my child. I was suppose to give 3.5 ml and I gave him 7.5 ml instead. It is already 8hrs past that time. My child is active but there are dark circles around his eyes. Do I need to worry and get him checked with the doctor right away?

Hello Doctor Grief; my name is Richard Hartsfield, from Alabama. I am a 61 year old veteran and I have been suffering chronic pain (90% arthritic), amongst other things. My doctors at the V.A. in Birmingham, Alabama have been looking after my needs until 16 to 20 months ago. I was told by my doctor at the V.A. that he was being mandated by his SUPERIORES that he was to start the process of taking myself along with all other Veterans that eventually practically all Vets would not be getting any narcotic pain relievers I was fortunate to have an old high school buddy who is a physician refer me to another physician who would see to my needs. I take anywhere from 150 to 170m.g. s of methadone for a long time and am afraid that ,(well I,m afraid that for some unforseeable reason, that I won t be able to get the meds I need. I am a caretaker for my 86 year old mother and it is a gut wrenching thing to watch her slowly die a little each day. To make a long storey short, I am looking ahead and will eventually need my pain meds (legally) each month without the stress of worrying if I will be able to get my meds. Respectfully, Richard Hartsfield
