In brief: It certainly can be.
Any accidental ingestion of medicines is potentially dangerous, but depends highly on the type of medication and dose.
If there appears to any immediate adverse reactions, like shortness of breath, chest pain, racing heart, go to the emergency room. If there does not appear to be any reaction, but you are concerned, discuss with your primary care physician.
