My daughter has taken 8 paracetamol, what do I do?
JA: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?
Customer: No symptoms as of yet, she took them about an hour ago.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: No none.

What is her age?

How much mg is one tablet?

Customer: replied 6 days ago.
14 and 500mg tablets

This is slightly overdose. Usually, this may not cause any life-threatening issue but she needs observation at a medical facility for 12 hours.

You may consider going to the ER or call poison control.

Drinking liquids liberally would help.

Please let me know if you need any more information.
