Two days ago I took 11 acetaminophen within 24 hours. I feel tired, dizzy and I am in my periods and I am scared of the amount of medicine I took. I didn't know they were 500 mg because usually I take 3 ibuprofen 200 mg for my headache, and I didn’t know I was taking 500 mg medicine after I took all those acetaminophen..

I am 66 years young and in fair health. I was a critical care nurse for 35 years and very satisfied with my work. I began having pain in my back in 2004, then I was host to a serious lung infection. I had to stop working in 2006. I was on patches for my back pain and taking acetaminophen for arthritic pain. The patches were not doing as well as they were eight years ago. I was taking up to six extra strength per day. I thought I was safe. Package warnings should include information about long-term use of acetaminophen. My first symptom was debilitating nausea and weakness. Saliva was pouring from my mouth and nose, and abdominal pain was constant. I perspired profusely. The acute phase lasted about 45 minutes. I hallucinated people in my home and about the house for 12-14 hours. I was aware that I was hallucinating, but it still was disconcerting. .
