Hello, and thanks for writing in.

If this occurred within the past 45 minutes, you can try inducing vomiting by giving 2 tablespoons of 3% hydrogen peroxide in the back of Jackson's mouth. If there is no vomiting in 10 minutes, you can repeat the dose of peroxide once.
Otherwise, I would just keep a close eye on him for the next 1-2 days for anything abnormal (vomiting, diarrhea, lack of appetite, lack of energy). It is unlikely that this will cause problems, since DHEA is a fairly benign product.

I hope this helps.
