About this app

The webPOISONCONTROL® mobile app provides expert help for a possible poisoning. It helps users determine if an exposure is dangerous and requires medical attention.

Did the baby eat a berry, a flower or a cigarette? Did you take the dog’s medicine? Did your toddler eat pills from grandma’s purse? Did you swallow something that might be poisonous? Did you splash a product in your eye or on your skin? Are you coughing from irritating fumes? Were you bitten by a spider? Did you take a double dose of your medicine? Don’t guess what you should do. Get accurate answers prepared by poison control experts.

Use the webPOISONCONTROL app to find out if you need to call Poison Control or go to an ER, or what to do if it’s safe to stay home. This free, confidential app will guide you. Just enter the age, substance, amount taken (if swallowed), weight, and time since the exposure to get an immediate recommendation. A barcode reader allows you to scan the product instead of typing or searching for the product name. Next tell us whether you have symptoms, and if so, the app will check to see if they are common, expected symptoms, or more serious. Often, it’s safe to stay home, but the app will tell you what symptoms to expect and when to call Poison Control or go to an ER.

Version 3.2 allows users to get answers even if symptoms have already developed and expands the scope of the app beyond swallowed poisons to eye, skin, inhalation and injection exposures, and bites and stings. It also guides users who have taken double doses, or doses too close together. The app was developed by poison control centers and has been safely used by more than half a million people seeking help for a poison emergency.

The one time I needed guidance to know if I had an emergency on my hands or not, it worked perfectly. Very easy, very quick. Guidance put me at ease and saved my daughter a trip to the emergency room! Four stars only because it encourages you to enter your email address...I'm not sure if the full functionality of the app is available without email and it's worth noting that I was pleased with the follow up emails for my case. I just don't like that I felt I had to enter personal contact info

Was freaking out because my toddler loves to put everything in his mouth constantly. Went to the website and put the info of the product and it came back that he wouldn't need to go to the E.R. and it made me feel more at ease. Loooove the product scanner feature!! Loooove the fact that I get emails that ask about his well-being after every couple hours. Best believe that I downloaded the app. Definitely recommend

Great app. I've used the web version a few times now (because toddlers) and I was happy to discover there was an app. I for one don't mind when every once in a while I get a prompt urging me to call poison control after I enter in the info, because I know that they will answer the phone immediately and give me whatever information I need immediately, however it doesn't happen very often. Thanks for this app!

Help is available for swallowed poisons, skin, eye, inhalation and injection exposures, and bites and stings. Users can get immediate guidance for medications taken in double dose or too close together. Substance, barcode, image and algorithm databases are greatly expanded enabling immediate triage and treatment recommendations for many more poison exposures.
