Hello
Thanks for your query.     
Always keep medicine at distance from children .No doubt 10 tablets of thyroxin contains 1000 micrograms of thyroxin ,dose is definitely high for 4 year baby. He should /will recover ,but it will take time for medicines effect to wash. keep him under observation for 72-120 hours.Have patience & concentrate on his treatment.
