H Jeremy....your daughter has a 2 hr window to remove these pills by inducing vomting which will remove this medication.

Give 1 teaspoons of peroxide per 5 pounds of weight and wait 15 minutes. If no vomiting, then try it again. You can do this 3 times safely.

After this, Jeremy, you ca give Wilf Activated Charcoal at a dose of 8 gm per kg every 8 hrs which will remove anything else that may have been left. This can be purchased at the pharmacy over the counter. If you can remove all of thsi medication, Wilf will be fine with no bad side effects, Jeremy.

Does that make sense to you, Jeremy?

Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please Reply so I can clarify for you
