Overdose: Overview

Modified on 2009/10/14 21:39 by admin
An overdose, depending on the person and the drug involved, can lead to serious and deadly consequences. Certain drugs are more likely than others to cause serious reactions when their dosage recommendations are exceeded.

Unfortunately, children are often most susceptible to overdose. The combination of access to drug products that are designed for adults and a child's diminutive size make overdoses in children particularly dangerous. It is important to know the phone number of your local poison control center.
