doxylamine succinate
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
rather just communicate this way

Thanks- just wanted to confirm

We are fine here

Normal dose is up to 2.0 mg/kg

We are at about 2.5 mg/kg

Usually need 2-3 X the normal dose to see any sedation

So I dont think we will see anything here

No need to induce vomiting

I hope that helps!
