In brief: Ethidium bromide

Most use of ethidium bromide in the lab (0.
25–1 microgram/ml) is below the level required for toxicity. The level is high enough that exposure may interfere with replication of mitochondrial dna in some human cell lines, although the implications of that are not clear. Testing in humans would be required to fully understand the potential risk to lab workers —> reference.

In brief: Go to ER

I strongly suggest you go to an emergency room just to be sure, especially if this was an attempt to harm yourself.

I do not know. I have no further information on that compound. You will have to go to an emergency room to get more information about it.
