Contact lens solution: How poisonous is it?

A few weeks ago, my friend came back from missing school. She told me some shocking news: she was suicidal and tried to kill herself. She drank contact lens solution, as well as other chemicals. Luckily though, her attempts failed. Right now she's heading towards a good recovery, but the news is still hard to swallow. I could have lost a good friend of mine (I remember bawling my eyes out when she told me that).

Which leads to the question: Is contact lens solution poisonous (to the point where it kills you when you drink it)?

I mean, my friend survived (which I was really happy for); however, she never told me if she had to go to emergency or anything. So now, I'm beginning to question if drinking contact lens solution was an effective way of suicide.

I'm sorry if I'm offending anyone.

Uhm, pretty sure contact lense solution is just saline or something like it.

Apparently it only makes you go to the bathroom.......but mixed with other chemicals might cause little change.....

Well if your friend drank it and she's still alive, I'd say it's not. Good thing too, or you would have lost your friend.

If she really wanted to die couldnt she just jump from a high building? I guess she was scared of it in the end. Good thing.

Um...like the mild saline? Uh... I would imagine no more poisonous than drinking lightly salted water. Not good for you but unlikely to kill you in the amounts you could drink before throwing it all up. My sister drank a half a gallon of Clorox bleach and she was fine. (vomited all night but she was fine.) It really is amazing the crap the human body can sort out.

Contact lens solution, no, it isn't deadly. Think of it this way, you put it in your eye, is your eye gone? No.

Other chemicals will depend, and if she suffered damage from whatever she did, I doubt its the contact lens solution.
