Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 weeks ago):
I took approximately 20 paracetamol and a 70cl of 40% alcohol on Monday (this is now Friday) but my husband called an ambulance very quickly but before they arrived I was very drowsy and my eyes were rolling I think. I arrived at hospital and don't know if my stomach was pumped but was put on a drip I remember white liquid and a couple of yellow ones.
My memory of this is basically non existent as well as the week before and I am struggling to remember much on a day to day basis
From this study (4 months ago):
blood work has come back showing elevated potassium levels now for at least a couple of years; in addition to kidney issues - could the polethylene Glycol be the problem? What are the long term effects of staying on this as it works very well to relieve constipation. I take it every night.
