1-2 tablets intended for adults or a few gulps of naproxen mixture are unlikely to cause symptoms of poisoning in small children.

If the ingested amount is greater, contact the Poison Information Centre to confirm toxicity.
Keywords: Nicotinell®, Nicorette®, Nicotine gum
Children: If more than 4 mg of nicotine gum or 2 mg lozenge are ingested, seek medical assistance. Nicotine poses the greatest risk to children under the age of 1. Contact the Poison Information Centre to confirm toxicity.

Swallowing less than three sublingual 0.5mg nitroglycerin tablets is not likely to cause symptoms that require special treatment. When swallowed, nitroglycerin tablets lose much of their potency.
