Sir: Dr Brandon of the Paracetamol Information Centre (letter, 7 October) is disingenuous. Many (perhaps most) of the people who overdose on prescription or over-the-counter drugs do not intend to kill themselves; their wish is to provoke medical intervention so that someone will take some notice of them and their problems. Complete recovery from the overdose is what they hope for and expect.
