namegoeshere: Stop by the chemist for some syrup of ipecac. It works much better.


Do not use Ipecac Syrup. The American College of Emergency Physicians and the American Academy of Pediatrics both recommend that any existing ipecac be destroyed, and it's use prevented even in poisoning.

The most common poisonings cause altered mental status, and stomach contents can do horrible things to lung tissue if aspirated. In addition, the retching from it can be so violent that it causes esophageal tears and bleeding.

You're much better off calling 911 and/or poison control. If they DO need the substance removed, they'll put an NG tube down and either give activated charcoal, or flush the Gi tract with a lavage. They don't even recommend routine administration of Charcoal anymore unless the person is intubated or the poisoning will not cause altered mentation. Most people will NOT drink it, and it does horrific things to lung tissue if aspirated.

pxlboy: It wasn't Tylenol; it was my Rx (whose name I forget now). In my sleep-deprived state, it became apparent that I overshared a bit. My apologies.


Oh wow. You don't need to apologize at all. I think a lot of people would be glad you'd be willing to share your experiences, especially if it discourages others from doing it.

I hope you got help after it happened if it was intentional. Regardless of if anyone else thinks otherwise, depression and suicide is a health problem, and can be treated. It's like a cold, is what I tell people I deal with who have issues with treatment.

As someone who has had his stomach pumped, I can say I feel for anyone who has to endure it.
