How many mg was in the full pseudoephedrine pill, please?

she ate half
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 1 month ago.

Thank you. Thankfully, 15 mg/60 lbs equals just 0.25 mg/lb and it takes 2.5-3 mg/lb to see adverse reactions in the form of agitation, tremors, wide open pupils, rapid heart rate, and vomiting. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns.
