Accident - 01/09/03 10:26 PM

I regrettably bring bad news tonight. Tonight it appears that Neo (UGN moderator and IRC help operator) ingested 7-9 500mg Tylenol capsules for unknown reason. Just after 10pm PST, an ambulance arrived at his home. That's the last contact Curse and I had with him.

I wanted to make this post to make the UGN community aware of this terrible accident. We should all keep him in our thoughts. Good luck, buddy.

i wonder how unreal and curse were able to find out about this?

Re: Accident - 01/10/03 07:27 PM

neo was chatting with them at the time he OD'd. neo told them about how much he took and that his stomach hurt and his skin was turning yellow. Unreal recognized the yellowing skin as a liver problem, and told neo to call 911. Neo did so and the ambulance took him away.

yes thats right, tylenol has real bad effects on your liver if taken in excess. i geuss he didn't give an explanation of why he did this? hope he's ok.

Its not the tylenol persay... its a chemical in tylenol, acetaminophen. You'd be amazed what nasty shit they put in over the counter meds...

Well I hope Neo gets through this ok, and I hope that no one ever lets him near over the counter meds EVER Again... the little man handle them.

Acetaminophen isn't actualy nasty... It is the active ingredent in Tylenol. Just look at any generic version of Tylenol and you will see it is the active ingedent. It is also used in many cold medicines

Re: Accident - 01/11/03 12:46 PM

I don't think neo took the tylenol cause it was fun. I just hope it wasn't a suicidal gesture.

only a dumbass would try to OD on asprin, 9 500mg capsuls would only make him unconscious. no serious damage would be done, a simple stomach pump and a week hospital stay would cure him.

Re: Accident - 01/11/03 01:14 PM

that's why I said suicidal gesture, instead of a suicidal attempt. I don't think he really tried to kill himself. Some people do stupid stuff like shallowly slit their wrists just cause of emotional problems.

Re: Accident - 01/11/03 01:22 PM

thats why you slit your wrist long ways instead of sideways...

Re: Accident - 01/11/03 05:37 PM

it was tylenol not asprin crime, and enough tylenol could have lasting effects on your liver. i don't know what quantity would result in that though.

Re: Accident - 01/11/03 05:46 PM

not with the 500mg he took, you would need to take alot for liver damage
Posted by: unreal

Re: Accident - 01/11/03 11:05 PM

He did not take 500mg. He took 9 capsules at 500mg each. The harmful dose is 4000mg per day of acetaminophen (Tylenol). Neo apparently took 4500mg in one sitting.

Large doses such as those do not only cause stomach problems, but as BackSlash brought up, cause lasting liver problems (note that his skin turned a yellowish color).

I'm no expert on the subject, but after having four friends attempt suicide and one actually commit it, I am somewhat experienced.

I'm surprised SR's the first to mention that it might be a suicidal act. It seems to me that that's exactly what that was. People that attempt suicide usually don't want to die. They need some attention, so they'll do something that seems like a suicide attempt, but actually doesn't kill them. So he takes a bunch of pills, but a dosage that won't kill him, and gets online and tells someone about it. He gets rushed to the hospital, and then starts to get the attention that he needs. That's what I'm thinkin. The most common ways for teenagers to kill themselves are razors for girls, and ODing for guys. So what he did, and the method in which he did it, leads me to believe that it was, in fact, a suicidal gesture.

or just plain stupidity on his part. For all we know he had a killer headache. Nothing has been confirmed yet.
