Is there any home remedy to flush out extra doses of aspirin and exedrine ?

My friend took too many Extra Strength Exedrines (3) and added an additional 8 aspirins also,within a very short amount of time. He made it through the night but still feels quezzy. His main first symptom was abdominal pain , then became very dizzy. He made it through the nite, but still does not feel the samel Could we give him some home remedy to help absorb or to pass the stuff out of him? Any suggestions? Thanks Sharon Bay Area, California

Hi sharon;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The over dose of drugs is i guess self drugging to get a high so please tell him not to do such things again or he may land up in trouble.Aspirin causes severe acidity and can cause bleeding from stomach and exedrines containing i guess ephidrine can cause high BP so the combination is potentially dangerous.As for comfort from pain in abdomen you can give him cold milk and he should feel better also get him to a doctor to get examined and he will prescribe some antacid to get relief.
Thanks

Hello, I am a 60 year old female who started taking 25 mg of Losartan daily about 4 months ago. my blood pressure has dropped some since I started taking it but is sill not in the normal range. Was 170 s over 90 s when I started taking it and is not normally 140 s-150 s over 70 s. I spent the last 24 hours with my daughter who is going through some traumatic circumstances and returned home this evening to find my blood pressure is measuring around 165-175 for the top number and 99 -102 for the bottom number. I am trying to relax and my blood pressure has gone down a bit since I got home (167-98) but I m wondering if I should go to the ER or if I could just take an aspirin to help for the moment? I actually have a physical scheduled for tomorrow afternoon so that will be handy but would like to know:1) exactly what my blood pressure needs to be where it is bad enough to go to the hospital (obviously not where I would like to spend the evening) 2) Is were something I can do right now, such as take a low dose aspirin to help reduce my blood pressure without having to go the hospital? Thanks for your help! Marie

I know it is 4 of the aspirin, but what about the acetaminophen which is extra strength

Hi, my bf and I had dry humping couple of times yesterday. He had 2 boxers on and shorts and I had my panties. We tried to make sure nothing came on me. The next day evening I started feeling nauseous and tired. After a day, I still felt slight nausea but whenever I ate something, it stopped. I urinate a lot too and feel tired. I belch a lot too. My breasts feel a little tender and nipples hurt(i think they hurt because of bf making out on them too much yesterday). Am I pergnant?

I m having an issue with my periods lately. Since I was 12 I got it every month but never knew when in the month I d get it. Often I d get it on holidays or other big events. When I turned 14, they got a lot heavier periods. Pain killers bearly worked. I also just wasn t hungery and could go a whole day or two without eating more than a few bites of food. My mom thinks it might of been an issue inside me that I got from my dad s side of the family. I asked but nothing seemed to match up. Now I m 15. My periods have gotten really weird and it s starting to worry me. I was out and moving a lot over the summer and my periods were almost painless and I could even forget I had it. Once school started for me, I didn t get out as much and my period is more heavy than I remember. Well, at first I just had a lot of spotting for almost a month before I got the full out period. I felt fine for a little bit other than some cramps , but after I moved around and woke up more, I started to feel really sick. I felt like I had a fever , got pale, felt like I was going to puke, and everything in my body seemed to hurt. I had to be sent home it was so bad. This has happened to me before but then I had reason behind it. I thought I was sick from badly cooked food the first time and the other two times I was already sick. But me being in good health other than a runny nose from allergies turning into a fever and sickness when I get my period worries me. I need to find out what s causing this soon because I m tired of having to miss school and other things because of a period that leaves me in so much pain I don t want to leave bed. I ve never had sex and don t take any birth control medication so that takes a lot off the list of what s wrong. Do you know what it might be that s causing my periods to act so weird?

Thank you so much for this opportunity.My name is Sandra prior to this time I haven t seen my period( mestrual cycle) for almost 2 years which was in 2010,but on the 30th of August 2012 my period came and I was very excited but didnt show up in september.The next time the mestrual cycle came was in October 12th 2012.I was scheduled to do an IUI but when the doctor had a virginal scan on me he discovered that the lining of the womb is thin and he placed me on 6 tablets of 2mg progynova daily with primolut N . The question is,is the dose not to high having to take 2 tab -3times daily? I took the same drug in 2010 in another city I was asked to take just 1tab daily so am wondering why the doses high and the safety. thank you so much for your response
