Suicide by poisoning is quite common, particularly in the young female population. If the person was being prescribed medicines for any reason, then he/she attempts suicide by taking an overdose of these medicines. If not, they procure sedative-hypnotics (most commonly). Here, we present a case of attempted suicidal ingestion of diclofenac, omeprazole and paracetamol. The patient did not have any symptoms despite intake of significantly high doses. We feel that the gastric irritability (and hence the symptoms) that is commonly seen with overdose of NSAIDs was probably nullified because the patient had also consumed significantly high dose of omeprazole, thus making it an interesting case snippet.
