Hello! Welcome to Just Answer! My name is***** please give me a moment while I check your conversation with Pearl. May I have your name please?


Hi Sherri. I am happy to help you with this question. I understand how important an answer is to your question, so I will work on this for you until it is resolved. Are you able to please provide the brand name of the cartridge that was swallowed?


Have you observed any nausea signs such as excessive lip licking, drooling, or swallowing multiple times?


Just to confirm, you suspect that about 1/2 inch was swallowed?


Thank you.

This will be OK regarding any serious toxicity concerns. The amount swallowed is less than the toxic limit and will not cause any problems of internal organ injury. Therefore, this is not an emergency and no immediate treatments are required. It is recommended to monitor for signs of vomiting and nausea such as excessive lip licking, drooling, or multiple attempts to swallow. Nausea is usually self-limiting and does not typically require treatment, but you may give an over-the-counter antacid such as 10 mg of famotidine (i.e. Pepcid AC) or omeprazole (i.e. Prilosec) if needed. If no signs are seen after 6 to 8 hours, then no further monitoring is necessary.

Thank you

It is my pleasure. Do you have any other questions for now?

I hope I have given you a satisfactory answer. If you have any follow up questions, please reply here and I will be happy to assist you.
