Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXX,

Thanks for posting your question.

Please take your son to the hospital right away and get him treated, and if possible the pills can be taken out by gastric lavage, but please take him to the ER without any delay.

I will be available to answer your queries once you are back from the hospital if you have any.

Wishing your son a fast recovery.
