Activated charcoal

Activated charcoal is also known as medicinal charcoal.

It’s a very effective universal antidote if given shortly (<1hr) after a significant ingestion.

However, it is ineffective against petroleum products (like paraffin and inorganic metals).

Medicinal charcoal gives optimum results when taken as a suspension of the powdered activated charcoal in juice or soda (improves palatability) at a concentration of 1 part of the charcoal to 8 parts of fluid.
