I think my 3 yr old ate 800mg of ibuprofen but I’m not sure. He spit out a pill when I caught him, but not sure if he ate one before that. Symptoms??

In brief: Poison

800mg of ibuprofen is a huge dose for a 3 year old child.
Go immediately to ER or call poison control center immediately. Don't wait.
