Yes: You don't need to do anything. That dose is non toxic. The national poison control number is 800-222-1222. The call is free and the advice is good for any accidental ingestion. Someone is there 24/7.
Pediatrics 11 years experience
Yes: 10mg should cause no problems, in fact that is an appropriate dose for children greater than 6 years old, but do not exceed 10mg in a day.
