Hi there, This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Dr Basu :

There has been reports of fatality with ingestion of about 105 grams of ibuprofen.

This amounts to about 132 tablets of ibuprofen 800 mg tablets.

Such a high dose can shut down your kidneys, cause GI bleeding, metabolic acidosis and ultimately heart failure.

Dr Basu :

This is a very dangerous situation.

Dr Basu :

Why do you ask?

The patient should be transferred to the Intensive care at the earliest for proper resuscitation.
Still the mortality rate is very high.
