Overdose on vitamins

Ate too many gummy vitamins on accident. Ate 12 when normal dosage is 2. Thought they were regular gummies. I m fourteen. My sister poured them on the counter this morning because the bottle broke. She put them in a ziploc bag. I didn t know they were vitamins and I ate 12? What s going to happen? (FLinstones Gummy Vitamins)

Those vitamins has combintion of both fat soluble and water soluble vitamins. It could result in toxicity if not treated early. It would be best if you show to the ER to be safe of severe side effects especially of fat soluble vitamins like Vitamin A, D, E, K. Do not delay. Next time avoid preventable situations like these, take the help of your parents or friends if you are faced with doubts or problems.
