i got sinecod from pharmacy, and by mistake gave the adult dose to my 4year old, so instead of 5ml i gave her 15ml.

i have tried to make her vomit, but to no avail, gave her a bit of luke warm salt water but still no vomiting.

how worried should i be?

Call the doctor or the pharmacist and ask.

I hope by now you have called.  Another good option when something like this happens is poison control.  Hope she is doing well.

Holly falls apparently into the 9% of children with a high tolerance for medication. My Dr. reminded me she had to get adult antibiotics to take her ear infection away. Not recommending i should high doze her but, with the mistake i made she was okay and no need to panic. Pew
