Hi vidhya;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The common adverse effects are nausea;vomiting;epigastric pain/discomfort;dizziness;rashand even cardiac effects .If she has any of these symptoms then you get her to consult a doctor.As it is the prescribed dosage is around10-15 mg /kg of body weight so if she took 3 tablets it may be slightly more than double.Just watch out if she has any symptoms otherwise there will not be much problem.In case of problem get her to a hospital for treatment.
Thanks

Hi, can I ask you a question I am so worried about my father. He is on a 1 dose of ecosprin 150 and 1 dose of levipil 500 a day. But he mistakenly took 2 doses of each in one day and I think it was about one hour apart. He thought he didn t take them but he ended up taking two doses of each. Is there any danger of this? What should I do now.

I have bilateral neuropathy. I have several other conditions, one of which I take gabapentin for. My neurologist recently prescribed tramadol to compliment the gabapentin for dealing with the nerve pain. Despite the fact that I found the tramadol to be effective in reducing the progressive nerve pain, I had to stop due to an adverse reaction. Today my neurologist called in a Rx for fioricet to try instead. I do not suffer from migraines. I cannot find any info online about taking fioricet for neuropathy. Any thoughts on why/how thiscdrug would be effective for dealing with nerve pain in my legs?? Thank you in advance for your time and expertise,Chronic nerve pain sufferer

I have had Fibromyalgia since age 26/yrs. (I just turned 80/yrs. old 4/2014! Fibromyalgia is clearly the disease from hell ! About 2/yrs. ago, I saw an advertisement on tv for Requip {restless leg syndrome} & the symptoms were clearly me! I expected nothing from the Requip because I had taken Darvacet N-100 for 30/yrs. only to experience it being suddenly removed from the market! Why, I continue to take the Darvon all those yrs. is because I m severely allergic to ASA {swells my brain} with all the symptoms of a brain-stem stroke! This happened to me twice, because my Rhumatologist {sp} had Not listened to me & prescribed Dolabid after, I had clearly made it known of my severe allergy to aspirin! I ve been pleasantly surprised about the relief I receive from taking 1 Ultram {non-asa} + 2/Tylenol + 1/Requip but there are still times that I ve needed something stronger! My doctor gave me Hydrocodone which made me very ill from nausea. I just, now remembered, the pain relief I received after disc surgery{L-5} with Demerol combined w/ Vistarel & wondered if I would be out of line asking my doctor for Demerol APAP 100 mg. tablets?I m a retired nurse & the very thought of being rejected causes me to endure more pain than I should?Would you advise me to ask my doctor for Demerol Tabs? I was given Morphine tabs following Mesh Vaginal Sling Surgery & it, too make me very nauseated! ps: The surgery did Not work!
