Vomiting, mild nausea, gastrointestinal upset, hypotension, anorexia and diarrhoea.

 

Treatment ( For medical practitioner's information )

Empty the stomach via induction of emesis or gastric lavage.

Acetylcysteine administration is recommended to be instituted immediately after ingestion of an overdose has been reported without waiting for the results of urine and plasma level test. Acetylcysteine is most effect if treatment is started within 10 to 12 hours after ingestion of overdose, however, it may be of some benefit if treatment is started within 24 hours. For oral administration, the recommended adult dose of acetycysteine is 140mg/kg initially, then 70mg/kg every 4 hours for 17 doses. Each dose should be diluted to a 5% solution of drinking fluid prior to administration because of its unpleasant odour and its sclerosing properties. Any dose vomited within 1 hour of administration must be repeated. If necessary, the antidote may be given via duodenal intubation.

Plasma acetaminophen concentration should be determined at least 4 hours following the ingestion of overdose in order to ascertian the status of patient, Renal and cardiac function should be monitored and appropriate therapy instituted if necessary.
