Laxative Overdose?(urgent) - July 5th 2017, 01:47 PM

SoOoo im kinda freaking out right now cuz i (purposely) overdosed on laxatives to lose weight cuz i gained a ton of weight this week. Like a TON. So i had around [Edited] the recommended dosage, ur supposed to have 4 pills and i had around [Edited] that (i lost count i just kept popping them in my mouth one after the other).

I thought laxatives were not like your typical medicine, like there's no such thing as "overdose" and that they aren't deadly. the ones i have are herbal supplements, so i thought it wouldnt hurt me.

After I took them all (almost half the bottle) i had a bad feeling inside, so i went and searched up laxative overdose on google and its actually very deadly

am i gonna die ?? i dont wanna tell my family about this they'll kill me if they find out

How are you feeling now?

Laxative overdose can be harmful as you may have nausea and diarrhoea. These things can cause dehydration and electrolyte imbalances which can cause more complications and be harmful if not treated properly.

I understand that you may not want to tell your family, but your wellbeing needs to come first. Perhaps you can get to your nearest hospital, or contact your doctor, or call poison control. If need be, tell your parents. It's natural that you may worry about their reaction, but let them know that you are struggling and want help.
