Brief Answer:
Sleeping pill

Detailed Answer:
Hello. I just read through your question.

Your nephew is going to be ok. Your mother has done the right thing by taking him to the clinic to be examined. but you have no need to worry. the effects of a sleeping pills only last a few hours. at most h, he will be very drowsy for the next few hours. Other than that, nothing to be overly concerned about.
