listerine ingestion - accidental - forgot it was in my toothbrush cup and added some water to the cup and drank it - probably not more than 5-6 teaspoons of listerine advanced rise. added the water to the cup to take my sleeping med (lunesta 2 mg) so that went down with the listerine too... any risk? my other meds: toprol xl 25 mg daily allegra daily prevacid daily age 65 weight about 140
