I wish the site search was working so you could look up household, otc, and paracetamol!

The short answer to all is blunt, but I'm not being blunt: No.

Paracetamol is one of the worst methods to attempt suicide. Any OTC medicine as well. Even prescription drugs are not really suited for it, because most of approved meds have a high therapeutic index and/or a wide therapeutic window. Basically that means it is not really practical to use them for ODin cause you would need to take enormous amounts of the drugs. The only thing that comes close is SN, but then again laboratory-grade SN not the food preservative SN which you would find in households.
To only get rid of shitty feelings without caring about negative consequences can also easily be achieved by a lot of drugs. If you dont mind getting addicted, which I think is a big turn down.

Why the hell is it so hard to even die. Getting rid of these shitty feelings should be easy.
Imagine if humanity was created weak and it was easy to die... there would be no humans. We are designed to live . My body is living proof that it can withstand immense damage and not die. The suffering is beyond what anyone can endure physically and mentally and i still can’t just pull the plug .. truly insanity

Paracetamol is not a good way to ctb. It attacks your liver and you can die slowly of liver failure.
If you get hospitalised, there are drugs they can give you to help protect your liver and ensure your survival.

You're not kidding. I can't believe I made it through my partying days in my early and mid 20's. I wasn't even trying to die, I was just careless and stupid. I've shot up heroin, cocaine and MDMA all at once while drinking heavily and on antidepressants. Well, my ex-husband was actually always the one who gave me the shots, but still. I did OD on one of the doses, but I snapped out of it fairly quick and was fine only hours later. And that was just one night. Though, it probably wouldn't have taken much more to kill me. I often wonder if a lot of my mental health issues are due at least partly to those times. Even though it was a decade ago. I do regret it now.

Yeah I would steer clear of Lost All Hope as a reliable and impartial source of information.
Yes it was to show OP that the Inquired method doesn’t hold a very good rating, high failure and it’s very high on the pain scale . It was meant as a deterrent not as a help.
