Thank you for your question.

I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.

Usually the treatment depends on the symptoms.

You can take her to ER, if he has taken it now.

Gastric lavage can be done to remove the medicine.

Activated charcoal can diminish absorption.

If he has taken a few hours back, then you can observe him & observe for the symptoms as told by poison control center.

If any such symp***** *****ke restlessness, rapid breathing, confusion, increased temperature develops, then you need to take him to ER.

I hope this information will be helpful.
