What can happen if my 2 year old ate half of meclizine hci 25 mg?

Meclizine (Antivert) is indicated for motion sickness and vertigo. It is not recommended for use in children under 12 years old. The list of possible adverse reactions is quite lengthy and runs the gambit from headache and constipation to blurred vision and drowsiness, to over stimulation, hallucinations and seizures. Most are rare but this medication is not used for children, especially the very young.

Please keep all medications out of the reach of children. Lock them if you must.
