From this study (1 month 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
