Comment from: girl, 35-44 Female (Patient) Published: January 12

I tried to commit suicide by taking overdose of 100 mg of Herbesser capsules. Though I was taken to the hospital and got treated for the same, I have a fear that my kidneys and liver are damaged. I would like to know how to get rid of the remaining poison out of my system. I was given activated charcoal at the hospital and I vomited several times. But still I am really afraid.
