What would happen if my 5 year old child accidentally took a Synthroid (thyroxine) pill?

4 doctors agree

In brief: Probably nothing

It's a long release medication so one pill will probably do nothing.
I wouldn't worry about it unless he is allergic to the pill.

An adult dose of synthroid may cause tachycardia for a day, but my daughter has been taking it since birth...she was born without thyroid function.
