May I suggest you take Pepto Bismol or Gaviscon or Mylanta or any antacid you have readily available to help neutralize the acid in your stomach. This is a relatively small amount and shouldn't cause you any problems. Since you were able to vomit, you have reduced your exposure. Drink at least 4 eight ounce glasses of water, slowly over the next 2 hours. Should you start to have any nausea or stomach irritation, go to a hospital, but that should not happen. This will not affect your other medications.

I hope I have addressed your concerns.

Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have.

I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you and that I have earned my 5 star rating today.

Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen ( rating me now does not close your question). We can continue here until you are satisfied, simply use the reply box and let me know. Thank you.

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.
