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 3 years ago
25mg
Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 3 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….

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
