Brief Answer:
Please take him to emergency room but nothing to panic

Detailed Answer:
Hi...Please take him to the nearest emergency room. Nothing to panic, but a stomach wash will do good to the kid.

Stomach wash is definitely indicated as it's only 30 minutes now.

Hi Doctor,

Its now over 10 hours and my baby had peaceful sleep. Please advice if we still need him to take to a peadetrician. Will this have any long term or short term effect? How do we know that his body either obsorbed the medicine or expelled the medicine in motion?

I saw ur message late and didnt take to emergency for stomach wash.

Brief Answer:
The drug would have gone into the system - I will tell you the symptoms

Detailed Answer:
Hi...now the dug would have got absorbed into the system. But as the kid is comfortable nothing to worry about.

I suggest that you look for these below given expected complications and if any of these appear please take him to the pediatrician.

Chills, cold or flu-like symptoms, cough or hoarseness, fever, problems with urination, clear or bloody discharge from the nipple, abdominal or stomach pain, bloating, constipation, darkened urine, diarrhea, difficult or labored breathing, difficulty with walking, dizziness, faintness, or light headedness when getting up suddenly from a lying or sitting position etc.
