Hello, Kathy! How are you?

When in doubt, it is always best to contact poison control, or your nearest emergency services department.

Given his age, taking a double dose could cause dangerously low blood pressure and heart rate, according to the U.S. FDA.

Did he experience any adverse effects?

At 10 years old, it might be best if you took control of the medication, rather than letting him dose himself.
