Suicide by Poisoning Attempts Among Children Rise Sharply
There were 276 deaths among the self-poisoning attempts and 14,916 cases of “major effects,” which may include long-lasting symptoms.
The two most common substances used in the suspected pediatric attempted suicide cases were the over-the-counter pain killers ibuprofen and acetaminophen, according to the study.
Do it for the children. If it saves just one life…
Man, I wouldn’t have thought of acetaminophen as a method of suicide. For a reasonably sure, but horribly drawn out and painful death, you’d need to eat a whole bottle.
At least. Because the long term liver damage if you survie the overdose is going to make you miserable for whatever remains of your life.
