Exposure effects
One case of pathological laughter has been reported with human exposure. Primary sources of data are from animals which include reports of hyperexcitability, unsteadiness, coma, seizures, and brain damage in large overdoses. Mixed results for teratogenicity have been obtained in animals.
   Ingestion
Nausea, vomiting, anorexia, or diarrhea may be seen.
   Skin
Skin irritation or significant percutaneous absorption is not expected following normal dermal exposure.

First aid
 
   Ingestion
Seek medical attention. If individual is drowsy or unconscious, do not give anything by mouth; place individual on the left side with the head down. Contact a physician, medical facility, or poison control center for advice about whether to induce vomiting. If possible, do not leave individual unattended.
   Inhalation
Move patient to fresh air. Monitor for respiratory distress. If cough or difficulty breathing develops, evaluate for respiratory tract irritation, bronchitis, or pneumonitis. Administer oxygen and assist ventilation as required. Treat bronchospasm with beta2 agonist and corticosteroid aerosols.
   Skin
Remove contaminated clothing and wash exposed area thoroughly with soap and water. A physician should examine the area if irritation or pain persists.
   Eyes
Irrigate exposed eyes with copious amounts of tepid water for at least 15 minutes. If irritation, pain, swelling, lacrimation, or photophobia persist, the patient should be seen in a health care facility.
