Hi,

My name is***** and I can help you this evening.

First, can you make Mila vomit? You can given Hydrogen peroxide 2 to 3 tablespoons and she should vomit in 5 to 10 minutes.

Expert:  Dr. Amanda replied 1 year ago.

The primary toxicity in chewing tobacco is the nicotine. If she is having nicotine poisoning you will see small pupils, tremors, excitability and possibly seizures.

Here is a link to a discussion on cigarette toxicity which would also cover chewing tobacco.

Another possible effect would be vomiting and diarrhea as this product is very irritating to the intestines.

Does this help?
