Wife drank betadine instead of cough syrup. bottle looked same.
12 Feb 2011
Betadine contains methanol, which can cause a person to go blind or die if it was an awful lot, If it was just a tablespoon or so, their may be burning and alot of coughing, my 1st guess before the ambulance and only if the person is acting in extreme pain etc, call poison control center immediately tell them what she injested instead of the cough syrup and they will help you over the phone and will be able to tell you if the ambulance/er is needed... everything that she has taken in 24 hours is important for the center to know... ok... good luck and act quick...
