Hello and welcome, I am Dr. B and would like to help you today.How long ago did she eat this?How much dose she weigh?

Hi again,Since I've not heard back from you, I do want to leave my thoughts for you.Now the good news is that this drug actually have a wide safety margin. In fact, the dose she had is under that which we would expect adverse signs. So if she had all three, we'd only expect stomach upset ( vomiting, diarrhea, appetite loss) if anything at all. So we'd not be worried here but would want to monitor her for 24 hours and consider putting her on a light diet ( ie rice with boiled chicken, boiled white fish, scrambled egg or cottage cheese) to offset any upset from this Please take care,Dr B
