Thanks for posting the query.

No, normally with a single extra dose, nothing can happen.

But do give him a lot of water to drink (2-3 litres a day) and an acidity pill to obviate any effect on kidneys and stomach.

Hope my answer is both helpful and assuring. Please get back if you have a follow up query and hope your child gets well fast. Do accept this answer if you do not have any other queries.
