I am a 16 year old girl just taken 20 co codamol, 8 paracetamol and 5 codeine last night. Shortly after I collapsed and was out cold for 1 minute rushed into hospital where I vomited and was put on IV drip, then I was allowed home. What do the next 24-48 hours hold for me, will I die?

My skin was also rashy and I had a blood pressure of 96/64. My vomit when I got home was green as well
Your blood pressure certainly is on the lowe side and you must keep yourself well hydrated.
Green colored vomiting means that it has bile mixed in it.
If the vomiting is severe you must go to the ED again.
Let me know if you have more questions.
I would appreciate a positive rating.

So you think nothing shall happen to me in the next 48 hours, even though it could still be possibly damaging my liver?
Yes nothing shall happen.
You can have your liver function test repeated after 48 hours just to be on the safe side but seems like nothing serious or anything to worry about as far as I am concerned.
If your symptoms worsen then obviously you must be seen ASAP.
