I was not the person helping you before, but I can quickly and accurately give you an answer to this question. Firstly, have you observed any vomiting or nausea signs such as excessive lip licking, drooling, or swallowing multiple times?

Without the information requested in my previous response, I can only give you a general answer, but I hope this helps.

This should be OK regarding any serious toxicity concern. The parts of the plant can cause oral irritation, intense burning and irritation of the mouth, lips, tongue, excessive drooling, vomiting, or difficulty in swallowing, but it will not cause internal organ injury. 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 5 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.
