Thanks for the query.
Brief answer....just stay calm and monitor your symptoms
Detailed answer..
A person may just not get any symptom or a person may feel slight dizzy,nauseous,light headed,decreased heart rate etc.
You should remain calm and take plenty of oral fluids.
If you feel very low,then you may go to ER.
The chances of a person getting very sick after consumtion of these medications,however are very less.
Make sure that you are not alone and somebody is there with you so that in case of any problem,you can be shifted to ER.
I hope it helps however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
