Hi peeps I was up most of the night mistakenly took too many pain killers scared myself to death. Took double strength ones instead of regular ones and doubled up on them wont do that again sat up till 4 and the pain in my hip still did nt go anyway! just wanted to share info. Threw the strong ones away so i wont make the same mistake again. How is everyone?

Hi jenny I relate to that it's easy to do when your in pain and tired. I started to use one of those plastic wallets with compartments numbered with the days of the week and sub diveded into morning, lunch etc so I could not take too many in a day ... Hope your feeling batter soon. Take care xxx

The local Boots chemist aims to prevent pill popping for ever! They just don't sell them to people.

I wanted to ask when ibuprofen became a recreational drug!
But I was too engaged by being cross questioned about why I need more than 48 pills = 16 days supply.
I stood my ground and got the 96 eventually - really I was mad, as if standing around in pain was fun and all for 1 months supply (plus 1 or two pills). It is the customer who pays for purchases - give us some respect and privacy, the questioning is so humiliating I am still near tears.

Hi Pat, that must have been awful for you, good for you standing your ground. Its bad enough being in pain, I take ibuprofen and know a point will come when I am taking them a lot more often than I do now so could face the same problem.

Well I don't know if it was the tablets but I felt so ill last night - I actually thought I was going to die, it was so scary. I had really bad pains in my stomach, feeling sick, high temperature and my heart felt it was racing at a million mph. I have pains today like I've been sick, but I haven't!
