Thanks Blaze22. No vomiting or pain. Drinking milk and 2 slices of bread. there is only bloating and belching at this point. Thanks again
Betadine contains methanol, which is very dangerous, If it was just a tablespoon or so, their may be burning and a lot 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 ingested 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...
