Upset mindset due to death of family member. Taking naproxen pills. Will an overdose cause death?

My friend told me she had these pills called Naproxen for 500mg. She said she hates her life and wants to take 7 (7-7 is the day her little brother got killed). I told her not to but what exactly does this drug do? Will it kill her? If it is really bad I will go tell her parents but I think I can just scare her out of it, I know she is just upset and angry and doesn t really want to do that.

Thanks for posting your query

Naproxen is a pain killer and not a killer

Anyway any non steroidal anti inflammatory medicine is harmful to the body but can not kill instantly

Yet instead of scaring her I would recommend you take her to a psychiatrist and get her counselling done

Hope this helps
