Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. Thank you for using JustAnswer. I would start by giving 7 tablespoons of 3% hydrogen peroxide to induce vomiting. You can mix it with food, milk or yogurt. You can repeat a dose in 15 minutes if he doesn't vomit with the first dose.

Any evidence of the medication in the vomit?
