Brief Answer:
Be on Lookout for increased heart rate and diarrhea.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

I understand your concern.

You need not panic or worry. This is not a life-threatening dose or toxic dose.

You should be on the lookout for faster heart rate, agitation, sleeplessness, diarrhea and vomiting.

If these develop I suggest you take opinion from his pediatrician.
