My 2.5-year-old daughter ate one tablet of Qutan 25 mg (Quetiapine). What should we do now?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
This is an antipsychotic drug causing side effects after prolonged use or acute side effect due to consumption in a large amount. She took this drug in a small amount that is in range of normal dose. If she did not have any side effect, you need to do anything. Common side effects are headache, generalized weakness, drowsiness, restlessness, dizziness.
Fatigue tremor, abnormal movements, dry mouth, constipation, increased heart rate, palpitations, postural and orthostatic hypotension, blurred vision, sweating, skin rash, eruption, fever, and flu-like symptoms. Unlikely, but if she developed symptoms, you need to report to your nearest pediatrician. Kindly keep these drug in a safe place out of reach to your kids. I hope this will help you.
