This product contains a carbamate insecticide which inhibits the enzyme cholinesterase. Signs and symptoms which may be seen, usually within 1-2 hours following overexposure, may include, but may not be limited to, headache, constriction of the pupil of the eye, blurred vision, excessive salivation or nasal discharge, profuse sweating, abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Convulsions are rarely seen in carbamate poisoning. Note to Physician: In severe poisoning, measurement of blood cholinesterase activity may be used in monitoring exposure, but may not be reliable detectors of carbamate poisoning because enzyme activities may revert to normal within minutes or hours of exposure. If signs of cholinesterase inhibition appear, atropine sulfate is antidotal.
