Unhappy HELP!!!My 17m DD drank a Mountain Dew!

I need help on something. At 6pm Katie found a Mountain Dew when I was out of the room for a sec. She downed half of it. She has never had pop or caffeine. She went to bed at her normal 7pm but woke at 8ish and started jumping on the bed and talking to her self. What should I do to help her feel okay? She has to feel like she is going crazy with all that sugar and caffeine.
Any advice?

She'll be just fine. It won't hurt her. She'll just be hyper for a while.

Water and time. Water to try and help flush some of the caffeine and sugar out. Time to just give it time to work through her system. *hugs*

possibly water. Water would help "Water down" the effect of the sugar for sure. possibly the caffine too.

Yikes! Maybe give her a bunch of water and try to flush it out? Or bread to absorb it all? I dunno...I'm just thinking of all the solutions I've heard to keep from getting drunk from alcohol. Hope she's okay.
