Please help me....emergency!

My three year old dd accidentally took my 8 year old's vyvanse 30 mg. I split the pill and pour it into juice and give it to her. Well, I thought she took it but she was getting dressed. All of a sudden I look over and see my three old drinking it. I grabbed the cup and it was all gone. I don't know what to do. When she was about a year old she got into Mariah's bottle of pills and digested at least 8 (from what we could count). Of course we took her to the emergency room and we spent three days there. She almost died. This time she is two years older and only took one. Here's the problem. Number one, it was extremely traumatic and I don't want her to go through that again. Number two, I have no help with my other kids and what if we have to go back to childrens? Number three, I'm damn lucky I didn't get CPS called on us. I'm pretty sure it would happen this time. Any suggestions? Has this happened to anyone else?

Call poison control now. Don't post on a message board for help with something like that!!

I'd take my kid to the er, regardless of my concerns about cps.

Do you have some sort of telehealth # to call? They can do calculations to see how much is harmful.

* I called them a LOT!!! lol

I don't know what that medicine is, but I'd call poison control asap.

Do you go to Children's in Madison (I see you're in Delavan)? They have a place for siblings to go. I'm sure other places have the same. Heck, if you're in Madison, I'll watch your kids.

Definitely call poison control. And I would suggest from now on you watch dd drink her juice, so there are no more mix ups.

Sorry, hadn't heard of it. I'd definitely call, then. Do you know how much the intended daughter drank? Either way, still risky. Call. If she is admitted there will be a way to make it work with the others
