Customer Question

My 23 month old MAY have consumed some melatonin while I was in the shower. 10 mg pill. What should I look for? How long before symptoms would be evident? Thanks.

Hi. The dosage would be a little high if the child were actually being given melatonin but I think he'll be OK. Drowsiness and lethargy might start within an hour and if that begins to happen you should have him checked out by a doctor
