Seek Care Now

Based on your answers, you may need care right away.

  • If you swallowed or inhaled a poison, call the local poison control center or the National Poison Control Hotline (1-800-222-1222) now, before you do anything else. The poison control center will tell you exactly what to do.
    • If possible, have the poison's container with you when you call. The information on the container may be helpful to the poison control center.
    • If you cannot reach a poison control center by phone, go to the nearest emergency room.
  • If you swallowed a disc battery, call the National Battery Ingestion Hotline at 800-498-8666 right away and arrange for medical care.
    • Swallowing 2 teaspoons of honey right away coats the battery and reduces damage to the esophagus.
    • Two teaspoons of honey can be swallowed every 10 minutes for up to 6 doses.
    • Note: Only give honey to a child older than 12 months and if the battery was swallowed in the past 12 hours.
