hi! i understand why you are concerned. while 1200mg is a large dose of ibuprofen, it is not deadly. it may cause you some stomach irritation. avoid taking any other over the counter pain medication, especially products with aspirin in them for the next 24 hours, drink an extra couple glasses of water tonight and tomorrow and you shouldn't have any trouble!

hope this helps
