    Five Common Drugs More Dangerous Than Plan B

    *Please note B will not cause ectopic pregnancy but if a girl/woman already has an ectopic pregnancy it will cause nausea and cramping.
    Below, take a look at how Plan B stacks up against some extremely common remedies.

    Plan B
    Possible side effects: allergic reaction; ectopic pregnancy; nausea, diarrhea, or stomach pain; breast pain or tenderness; dizziness, tired feeling; changes in menstrual periods; headache
    Overdose effects: nausea, vomiting
    Over-the-counter? 17 and older only [ will soon be available over the counter for all ages]

    Tylenol
    Possible side effects: allergic reaction
    Overdose effects: possible liver failure and death
    Over-the-counter? Yes

    Advil
    Possible side effects: allergic reaction; upset stomach, mild heartburn, diarrhea, constipation; bloating, gas; dizziness, headache, nervousness; skin itching or rash; blurred vision; ringing in ears; chest pain, weakness, shortness of breath, slurred speech, problems with vision or balance; black, bloody, or tarry stools, coughing up blood or vomit that looks like coffee grounds; swelling or rapid weight gain; urinating less than usual or not at all; nausea, upper stomach pain, itching, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes); fever, sore throat, and headache with a severe blistering, peeling, and red skin rash; bruising, severe tingling, numbness, pain, muscle weakness; or severe headache, neck stiffness, chills, increased sensitivity to light, and/or seizure (convulsions)
    Overdose effects: stomach bleeding; difficulty breathing; coma
    Over-the-counter? Yes

    Prilosec OTC
    Possible side effects: allergic reaction; fever; cold symptoms such as stuffy nose, sneezing, sore throat; stomach pain, gas; nausea, vomiting, diarrhea; headache; magnesium deficiency which may cause seizures; increased risk of bone fractures
    Overdose effects: drowsiness; blurred vision; fast heartbeat; nausea; vomiting; sweating; headache; dry mouth
    Over-the-counter? Yes

    Benadryl
    Possible side effects: allergic reaction; impaired ability to drive or operate machinery; sleepiness, fatigue, or dizziness; headache; dry mouth; difficulty urinating or an enlarged prostate.
    Overdose effects: extreme sleepiness; fever; hallucinations; seizures
    Over-the-counter? Yes

    Robitussin DM
    Possible side effects: allergic reaction; impaired thinking and reactions; dizziness or headache; rash; nausea, vomiting, or stomach upset; when abused, can lead to hallucinations and paranoia, as well as possible irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, brain lesions, epilepsy, and permanent psychosis
    Overdose effects: at least one death has been reported as a result of Robitussin overdose,
    but psychological ill effects, like the feeling of being trapped in a "time loop," may be more common

    Over-the-counter? Yes

    Just to be clear, we don't advocate requiring prescriptions for Advil, or keeping Tylenol under lock and key. The information above is merely evidence that the United States trusts consumers to educate themselves and take reasonable precautions with over-the-counter medications. The FDA's study indicated that young girls were eminently capable of doing this with Plan B — .

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Sleepiness is a "dangerous side-effect" of Benadril? That's what I take it for.

    Negative. The thread is about this pill being available OTC. But if you want to discuss this more, what are the "toxicity levels" of progesterone anyway? What dose would you have to take, and would would happen to you? Is this worse than what would happen with an overdose of tylenol?
