March Tips of the Month: What to do if a Poisoning Occurs

Remain calm.

If life-threatening problems such as difficulty breathing, convulsions or fainting occurs call 911 immediately.

If you have a poison exposure and the victim is alert call 1-800-222-1222. Try to have the following information ready if possible.

  • The person's age and estimated weight.

  • The container or bottle of the poisonous product, if available.

  • Time that the poison exposure occurred.

  • Your name and phone number.

  • Existing health conditions or problems.

  • If any first aid performed.

Follow the instructions from the emergency operator or the Poison Control Center.

Syrup of Ipecac:
This medication is used to induce vomiting. It can be obtained without prescription in a pharmacy. However, we do not recommend its use without guidance from the poison center. Call the Poison Control Center at 1-800-222-1222 regarding the need for use of Ipecac.
