1- We are in different time zones so giving me time does not help; how many hours since she may have taken the pills?
Customer reply replied 3 years ago.
At most 1.5 hours

Nicola, let's move quickly and try to induce vomiting. You will need to dilute the peroxide. Mix in 1/4 teaspoon of 9% hydrogen peroxide in 1 teaspoon of water and give her this mixture orally. Allow her to walk for a minute; if she does not vomit repeat it again; can give a total of 3 times 5-10 minutes apart.

Please let me know if she vomits, I will be here on stand bye for the next 30 minutes.
