Death from overdosing on Nurofen Plus.

Death sparks call for restrictions on drug sales

Extract from the Telegraph:

"A coroner has called for tougher restrictions on the sale of over-the-counter drugs after the death of a woman who became addicted to Nurofen Plus.
Linda Docherty, 49, trawled supermarket pharmacies and High Street chemists so she could take up to 64 pain-killing tablets a day.
She finally confessed her addiction to her husband and the family’s GP after two years.
However, by then it was too late and she died of kidney failure four days later.
At an inquest in Bury, Greater Manchester, yesterday, the coroner Simon Nelson recorded a verdict that Mrs Docherty died "by reason of an addiction to over-the-counter medication".
He said he would be writing to the Royal Pharmaceutical Society to ask whether the current regulations concerning over-the-counter drugs were sufficiently rigorous. "I feel that the system has to be looked at again.""
Pharmaceutical drugs do tend to damage the kidneys - and the liver too, come to that.
