Overdose. If someone has overdosed and has serious symptoms such as passing out or trouble breathing, call 911. Otherwise, call a poison control center right away. US residents can call their local poison control center at 1-800-222-1222.
Is it OK for toddlers to drink Pedialyte everyday
Pedialyte can be purchased in several forms, including ready-to-drink solutions, powdered packages to mix with water, and popsicles. Typically, it’s best to offer your child small, frequent sips every 15 minutes or so, increasing the amount as tolerated.

Although Pedialyte is safe in moderation, you shouldn’t take the dosage lightly. Even if your baby likes the taste, it’s not to be used as a treat. In clinical practice, I only recommend the use of Pedialyte or other oral rehydration fluid during illnesses where there is an excessive fluid loss.
Is Pedialyte good for adults daily
Pedialyte is an OTC rehydration drink for both children and adults. It’s one of the most effective and safest treatments available for mild to moderate dehydration. Because it contains electrolytes, it’s more effective than drinking only water if you’ve lost a lot of fluids.

To maintain proper hydration, 4–8 servings (32 to 64 fl oz) of Pedialyte may be needed per day. Consult your doctor if vomiting, fever, or diarrhea continues beyond 24 hours or if consumption needs are greater than 2 liters (64 fl oz) per day.
