My 5 year old drank 2 30ml capfuls of Tylenol cold multi symptom this morning. I called poison control and they said he should be fine. This is irritating.

For those who I know will ask, the medicine is in my room, I was in the bathroom, I locked my door but apparently it didn't latch, and he got in my room.

But good news is he didn't drink enough to be too terribly worried about.

My son drank half a bottle of children's Tylenol when he was 2yo. He was fine, but it was scary.

He loves medicine, and I have no idea why he would want to drink it, it is gross!

What if he drank more and is too afraid to tell you? God, that's scary. Did Poison Control give you any signs to look out for?

The bottle was half full and is now 1/4 full, the poison control lady said it was consistent with 2 capfuls, she said he may be drowsy and become jittery, she didn't say anything to really watch for

One of my daughters got ahold of my bottle of Zyrtec (with a childproof cap, idk how she got it open).  I found her chewing on 2 in her mouth and dug them out.  She had spilled the rest of the bottle so I didnt know how many or if any, she had ingested.  I called poison control too.  They were great.  There was no danger and they called me back later to check on her as well.  It happens to most of us at some point.
