Thanks for your question.
There is high risk of bleeding ulcer in the stomach.
Naproxen and melatonin can cause this.
Liver damage is also possible.
The symptoms of liver damage will be mental confusion, drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, yellowish discoloration of the eyes, skin or urine.
You should watch out for dark tarry stools, any blood in the vomitus.
These will be signs of active bleeding.
Although not fatal, there is some risk of serious complications like above.
Close monitoring is required.
She is currently not having blood in stools
For stomach pain, she can try an antacid like Maalox or mylanta,
neither does she have yellow eyes or mental confusion
Prilosec tablets laos can be taken 20 mg daily to help with the stomach pain.
ok that is good.
But keep an eye on these symptoms
is the burping related to acidity?
yes likely --acid reflux
that is why prilosec and Maalox will help.
can things go worse now?
She has not seen anything other than stomach pain and burping since 3 days
unlikely now since 3 days already passed
But still monitor for 3 more days.
and eating any food is okay?
bland diet is better.
Soup, rice, toast, bananas are better
once the pain subsides, normal diet should be resumed.
can she still be having any ulcer?
should we eventually go to a doctor to get it checked anyway?
yes possible still.
yes she should.
prilosec will help with ulcer as well.
is prilosec OTC?
she fainted on day one
was is due to overdose?
yes likely --
and seems like she was sleeping for 2 days
that is the effect of the pills.
Another detail she revealed to me was that she ate 10 oxycodons last month
which I was not aware off
Till she becomes hr normal self, continue monitoring her and encourage her to see a doctor.
these are dangerous habits.
That I will try my best
better to see a psychiatrist to treat her underlying mentalcondition.
I guess it's time to tell the parents

Thanks a lot!
She is taking Prilosec now. Should she also be taking Maalox? Are these two same drugs or have different purpose?
Her burping has not gone away, her stomach pain still exists, at intervals...
I have not been able to convince her to go to doctor yet. Nothing else is wrong. She does not have liver failure or bloody stools. But, I just worry that if this burping and stomach pain does not go away, what can I do?
