In brief: Depends

"Overdose," suggests that you don't mean that you simply took an extra 50 mg one time, or something like that.
Rather, around 500 mg or higher, and less, for a child, with delirium or impairment in consciousness -- or something that MIGHT be in that ballpark. In that case, it is life threatening.Emergency medical treatment is mandatory. In doubt? Call poison control or 911, but don't delay.
