So I accidentally overdosed on 2 500mg of cipro, 2 200mg of ibuprofen, 1 200mg of Advil, 1 500mg of L848. Will I die or get sick? I took those all at once and I am scared. They all contain acetaminophen which scares me. Are there any bad side effects caused by taking these painkillers all at once?

Hello, Rene! How are you? Did you experience any adverse issues?

That is a large amount to take, at once, so you should inform your doctor, or seek emergency medical assistance if you start to feel very ill, dizzy, or as if you will faint, according to NIH overdose reports.

However, these are not all pain killers and they do not all contain Acetaminophen, so you didn't take too much of that, the only one that you've listed which contains Acetaminophen is the tablet with the L848 marking, it's an over the counter dosage, as listed by the FDA and contains 500mgs of it.

Cipro is actually classified by the FDA as an antibiotic, it is used to treat bacterial infections. It is generally only dangerous, if someone is allergic to it and has a bad reaction to it.

Additional Advil and Ibuprofen are the same medication, Ibuprofen is the generic for it. The FDA classifies it as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, it is used to treat pain, fever, and swelling. The main concern with taking high amounts of it is that it can cause increased risk of bleeding and stomach ulcers.
