That many Paracetamol can damage the liver which could cause the person to go into a coma without medical attention. Ibuprofen will cause a bleeding ulcer in the stomach and acute kidney failure. It would be best to get her to the ER and get her looked at by the Doctors immediately.

Over dose may cause Gastritis. If she dont have any problem then there is no need to treat.if she have some problem then u should give her Cap Pantop-d 1 od for 10 days with syp.Mucaine gel 1 tsp bd. nothing to worry but frequent over dose will dafenately harm her.

Hey there, I was just bathing my 4month daughter and as I was getting he out I slipped on the wet floor, causing her to go under for a moment and also unfortunately causing her to bump her head on the bath also. She has a red bump on her head, and is a little lethargic (although she is due to go to sleep as well) Should I keep her awake? or can she go to sleep while I monitor her closely? I have also given her panadol to help with the pain she may be feeling after the bump.
