This answer was rated:

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

When did you take it? Do you have any symptom?

30-45 minutes ago. i feel drowsier and just a litle wobbly than i normally do from the sleeping pill. maybe just because it's late. my throat burned for 20 minutes or so after.

Thank you for the input.

Listerine contains alcohol, menthol. Excess of it can cause side effects. Menthol allergy can occur. You have taken a small amount. It should not cause any side effect. Gastric irritation can be possible. Take plenty of water. If you feel any discomfort, then talk to poison control centre(NNN) NNN-NNNN
