my friends 8 month old licked a ibuprofen pill?

my friends 8 month old licked a ibuprofen pill?

Its an 800mg pill cut in half so its now only 400mg?

Assuming he's "average" and weighs around 19lbs that means he would normally take 75mg. There's a large margin of safety with ibuprofen, even an infant can take 2-3 times the recommended amount (and this is sometimes prescribed). 3X would be 225mg.

So unless she thinks more than half the half a pill has been swallowed I wouldn't be worried.

IBUPROFEN

Ibuprofen is generally considered very safe to use in infants and children. There are minimal side- effect concerns in a healthy child. It sometimes can cause stomach upset, do not use if your child has stomach ulcers. Ibuprofen also can have a mild effect on blood clotting ability; I usually don't use it if a child has large wounds or bruises (note: Acetaminophen does not have theses two effects). Ibuprofen has a good safety margin, i.e. it takes many times the regular dose to be harmful. If given at the proper doses, it is safe to use "around the clock" for several days.

Poison Control Return to top

The National Poison Control Center (1-800-222-1222) can be called from anywhere in the United States. This national hotline number will let you talk to experts in poisoning. They will give you further instructions.

This is a free and confidential service. All local poison control centers in the U.S. use this national number. You should call if you have any questions about poisoning or poison prevention. It does NOT need to be an emergency. You can call for any reason, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Take the container with you to the hospital, if possible.

Safe to get pregnant with history of Malignant Melanoma/Skin Cancer?

If you become healthy, there is no reason not to have a baby.

Take up where your doctor leaves off. Become proactive in your prevention of cancer, too.

Get parabin free sun screens, because the parabins actually increase cancer risks when exposed to the sun.

The National Cancer Institute launched a 6 million dollar project to study phytochemicals because they snuff out cancer before it begins. Phytochemicals are the pigments on raw fruits and vegetables. Especially cruciferous vegetabls and fiberous fruits, like kiwi, papaya, pineapple, and mango.

Folic acid is plentiful in raw fruits and veggies, too, which is known to prevent birth defects. It aids in the normal development of the fetus.

Because, you and I are no different in the amount of cancer cells that we form every day. Its your immune systems job to keep it at bay every second and it must be fed with healthy things to recover and prevent it from coming back.
