Customer Question

Hi, I took 20 ml of night nurse at 2130, when I woke at 0200, thinking it was every 4 hours I took another 20ml. thinking it was the same as day nurse. On reading the bottle again it does not say to take every 4 hours.
I'm a healthy 49 year old female weighing approx 9.11 stone.
Do I need to call for medical aid?

Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

that is enough time separation.

Dr. David :

you don't have to seek medical attention.

Dr. David :

9:30pm to 2am is 4:30 hours

Dr. David :

I'm looking up the dosing now.

Dr. David :

each dose of 20mg is Paracetamol 1000 mg, Promethazine Hydrochloride 20 mg and Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide 15 mg.

Dr. David :

you can take up to 4000mg of paracetamol in a 24 hour period

Dr. David :

so you are safe with that.

JACUSTOMER-gd9qhqoj- : Thank you very much for your advice
