The drug consists of the popular substance paracetamol. Why is an overdose of paracetamol dangerous? Adults who take 10 g or more of paracetamol may develop renal failure. Taking 5 g or more of paracetamol can cause liver damage if risk factors are present: long-term treatment with carbamazepine, phenobarbital, phenytoin, primidone, rifampicin, or other drugs that induce liver enzymes, alcohol abuse, glutathione deficiency (eg, malnutrition) cystic fibrosis, HIV infection, starvation, cachexia.
Symptoms: with an overdose of paracetamol in the first 24 hours — blanching, nausea, vomiting, anorexia, and pain in the abdomen.
Liver damage can occur within 12 to 48 hours after the use of the drug.
In case of an overdose of paracetamol, despite the absence of primary symptoms of an overdose, it is necessary to seek qualified help from medical institutions. To prevent the serious consequences of an overdose, the necessary measures should be taken promptly.
Symptoms may appear only partially as nausea or vomiting, and may not reflect the actual degree of overdose or risk of organ damage.
In severe overdose — liver failure with progressive encephalopathy, coma, death; acute renal failure with tubular necrosis (including in the absence of severe liver damage); arrhythmia, pancreatitis.
Symptoms: irritability, headache, increased blood pressure. In the event of these symptoms of an overdose, you should consult a doctor.
Treatment: administration of SH-group donators and precursors of glutathione synthesis — methionine within 8–9 hours after an overdose and acetylcysteine — within 8 hours. The need for additional therapeutic measures (further administration of methionine, intravenous administration of acetylcysteine) is determined depending on the concentration of paracetamol in the blood, as well as the time elapsed after taking it.
