User :   My 3 year old daughter (26 lbs) may have taken my vitamin--One a Day Women's Active Metabolism. We can't get a clear answer from her. It's bad enough tasting I don't think she would've chewed it up and it's too big to swallow whole for her. Do I need to take her to the ER?
Doctor :   hello
Doctor :   when did she took it ?
Doctor :   how many tabs she took ?
User :   It would've been 3-4 hours ago. I forgot to take it and noticed it was missing.
Doctor :   how much time has gone by ?
Doctor :   so she took one ?
User :   Only 1 if she did take it
Doctor :   is she having any symptoms ?
User :   no
Doctor :   ok well there is nothing to worry about
User :   Thank you.
Doctor :   we are more concerned if she took more
Doctor :   like you said you are positive it would be ONE only
Doctor :   just give her some water thats all
User :   I know there was only 1 out. She didn't open a bottle. I accidently left it on the counter
Doctor :   ok well dont worry
User :   I'm guessing she tasted it and threw it out trying to keep from getting into trouble
Doctor :   thats probably right
Doctor :   anyway since she has no symptoms too you can relax
Doctor :   BUT make sure you are careful next time
User :   Yes I know..... We have 3 under 5 and I'm usually very careful
User :   Thanks for your help. Good bye
Doctor :   bye
