Hi Jen. I am happy to help you with this question. I understand how important an answer is to your question, so I will work on this for you until it is resolved. Do you happen to know about how much Round Up was applied? Was it a general spray over the area or was it highly concentrated on that weed?

Have you observed any nausea signs such as excessive lip licking, drooling, or swallowing multiple times?

Would ingestion of the pesticide have any delayed reaction or would it be more immediate?

OK, good.

This should be OK regarding any serious toxicity concerns. The amount swallowed is not toxic and will not cause any problems of internal organ injury. The response would be immediate, or within a few hours, but it would not take longer than that to see a response. Therefore, this is not an emergency and no immediate treatments are required. It is recommended to monitor for signs of vomiting and nausea such as excessive lip licking, drooling, or multiple attempts to swallow. Nausea is usually self-limiting and does not typically require treatment, but you may give an over-the-counter antacid such as 10 mg of famotidine (i.e. Pepcid AC) or omeprazole (i.e. Prilosec) if needed. If no signs are seen after 6 to 8 hours, then no further monitoring is necessary.
