Hello
This can be an overdose for a six year old.
This is an immediate ER visit at this point.
What mg are these pills?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
25mg
Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 2 years ago
OK
So that is over 3 times the maximum daily dose.
Take him to the ER for safety.
Unlikely to be fatal, but needs exam....etc.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
