ANSWER #4 of 6

In rats the LD50 dose (the amount that kills 50% of rats) is 636 mg/kg.

Since we don't know the human LD50 amount assume ibuprofen is about as toxic in humans as it is in rats (in reality it could be more or less toxic).

For a 70 kg (154 lb) person the LD50 dose would be 44520mg or 223 200mg tablets. One would probably have to take a lot of tablets before it is likely to kill you.

Advil is not an antidepressant
Yes you can overdose on antidepressants (and yes advil too)
However, overdosing is messy (all that vomiting), unpleasant (it is painful), and doesn't have the best success rates...
How much you need to take depends on how much you weigh, whether or not you've eaten, and whether or not you have tolerance to the medication... its a lot of pills though...

hmm. Over dosing on advil would be taking more than 4. Usually you're not supposed to exceed like 1600 mg per day ( I know this because I took advil for my period cramps). As for it being impossible to overdose on anti-depressants...Did you not know that Heath Ledger died that way? Well actually he mixed perscriptions but you can overdose on any perscription drugs, thats why you can never get them over the counter, probably even more dangerous than overdosing on advil...
