You would know by seeing the symptoms of an oxycontin overdose! Depressed breathing and pupil dilation are the easiest things to notice when someones on it. Also, especially in a small kid, dizziness. I used to snort the stuff recreationally (stupid) and I can tell you from my own experience that when you take too much OC you get cold and clammy, but sweat at the same time. If a 2 year old were to ingest any amount of OC it would probably be bad for them. Overdose can cause seizures, coma, and death. If this is even a possibility you would want to take the kid to the ER asap. Also, Ipecac syrup is made to induce vomiting, and if its administered in time could get the pill out of the stomach without causing any harm. But action needs to be taken quickly
