One of my friends took and over dose of pain killer tablets. What to do now?

Resolved Question:

Dear doctor,

One of my friends took a heavy (I think so) over dose of pain killer tablets. He ate about 15-20 crocin tablets and combiflam at the same time. He is just getting a stomach ache and nothing else. That too happen while drinking water. Is there any problem with this? Can this pain be stopped anyway?  Please reply as soon as possible.

Thanks for your question, This is a matter of emergency and nothing else. Take him to a doctor as soon as possible. Pain killers on an overdose can damage liver and its functioning. It can also cause bleeding in stomach, at times. This can be fatal also, at times. The pain he is experiencing may be due to the internal bleeding. Get a complete checkup and medical aid.
