    4 1/2 year old just ate a 500mg paracetamol tablet. Problem?

    As in the title. My daughter just admitted she ate some medicine form my bedside table. A 500mg paracetamol tablet. Anyone know if this is a problem?

    doubt if one 500mgm tablet would cause any problems.

    sure it was just one tablet?

    Risk of severe liver damage (ie a peak ALT more than 1000 IU/L)

    Based on the dose of paracetamol ingested (mg/kg body weight):
    Less than 150 mg/kg - unlikely.
    More than 250 mg/kg - likely.
    More than 12 g total - potentially fatal.
    Paracetamol can cause serious or fatal adverse effects at around 150 mg/kg for many adults. There is considerable interpatient variability which depends on age, health and substances taken with the paracetamol.

    The level is higher for young children.

    if it was one tablet, then if your daughter weighed only 2 (two) kgms, she would be in danger.

    I'm in China. I'd rather not if I can help it.
    They'll want to remove her spleen and keep her in for observation for a month. Or at least put her on 'the drip'.

    Probably she's ok, 250mg doses are normally prescribed for kids. Keep and eye on her, maybe eat something.

    I don't understand. I'm being a complete twat over this or I'm a complete twat full stop and you thought you'd take this opportunity to mention it?

    Give ber a third of scotch and two litres of water. Would be a pity to waste a hangover cure.

    To put a number on it. Your girl just took an extra 5ml spoonful of Calpol than what she should have.

    If I was you, would I take her to the hospital? Probably not, but only after I had called a random hospital in the U.K (around 4pm there now) to see what they thought.

    Here's an idea to have peace of mind.

    Get a relative/friend to call the NHS helpline and let them pretend what happened to you happened to them and let them report back with the advice they got.

    NHS 24 contact details


    NHS 24 helpline

    111 is the new free way to phone the NHS 24 helpline from landlines and mobiles.
    The helpline is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
    When to phone

    You should only phone the NHS 24 helpline:
    • if you or someone you know is unwell
    • when your doctor’s surgery is closed and you feel it can’t wait until it re-opens.
    If you’re well, but have a question about your health or local NHS services, please contact NHS inform (external website).

    He's worried about his daughter. Hardly a sign of being a complete twat. You, however, with your complete lack of empathy, can go lick a dogs asshole until it bleeds. Again.


    She'll be fine Cujo, don't worry about her and stash your meds better in future.

    Trust your child well.

    There are plenty of good hospitals in China even one in Nanjing where some of the Drs speak Engrish almost eggs sackly like your present interlocutor

    Too late, but I should have made it clearer.

    I meant that Cujo could have asked a relative/friend in the U.K to make a 2 minute call to the helpline and then relay the advise given.

    Well, at least you got one sensible answer (from tax). Critical thing here was weight, not so very much age.

    A 4 1/2 year old girl should be somewhere around 15-20Kgs (high max).

    At the lower weight range, the dose is around 33 mgs/Kg, and at the higher 25mgs/Kg (i.e. 10 times lower than the "likely" threshold).

    Lesson of the day - lock up your effing meds. There are some that a single tablet could kill a child.
