Poison Control #: I agree with Dr. Reynolds. However, I really would not rely on the general heath information section of HealthTap for something you are concerned might be a medical emergency. You can call American Association of Poison Control Centers at (800) 222-1222 - 24/7 whenever you are worried about toxicity issues.
