Is vitamin D3 over dose life threatening?

Dear Healtcare Magic, Our pediatrician recommended 500IU of vitamin D3 (on every alternative day) for my 1month old daughter. All was going well but today, I accidentally dropped three (3) drops of vitamin D3 into her mouth (i.e., 1500IU). I was reading online that a vitamin D3 overdosage can cause vomiting, nausea, weight loss, constipation, and even kidney damage, inter alia. Is there a need to rush her to emergency?
