For Senior Adults

Carolinas Poison Center is not just for parents of young children. We also help senior adults with... 

  • medication questions or concerns
  • questions about food poisoning
  • poisonous plant identification
  • insect or snake bites
  • carbon monoxide incidents
  • any other thing that's been used in the wrong way, by the wrong person, or in the wrong amount.
