Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

That is about whole 24 hours dose in one time.

That can cause stomach irritation, and bleeding in some cases.

Also there is risk of heart palpitations, kidney damage.

These risks are low.

Symptoms like stomach pain, dark tarry stool, or blood in vomitus, decreased urination should be taken seriously and should be addressed in the ER.

he should be observed for these symptoms for next 48 hours.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
