My son had a fever, i got him childrens advil 2 tsp per his weight, he was crying he didnt want to take it, while i was putting the bottle in the storage area. I turn around and he gave it to his sister. His sisters recomended dose is 1tsp per her weight. Now im freaking out. Should i take her to the ER?
She should be fine. If you want definite closure, call poison control and they'll tell you.

Ok. Looked it up for you. You're watching for symptoms like nausea, vomiting, diarreah, precise sweating, and more severely things like seizures and convulsions etc. But again, I'd call poison control to be sure. And try estimate how much she got. 1/2 the bottle, it was full and now empty, or barely any missing. That sort of thing.
