Hi..I have flu like symptoms...headache, fever, sorethroat. I took 1000mg of paracetamol at 1.10 am and then mistakenly took another 1000 paracetamol dose at 2.30am. I am now worried about the effect ot will have on my liver. Prior to taking the dose at 1.10 I had not taken any other painkiller. Do I need to go to A&E?

Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your concerns today.
I am sorry to hear about your problem.

No, you do not need to go to the emergency even though that you took four tablets.

Four tablets is not a toxic dose and I would not worry whatsoever.

Let me know if you have more questions.
