The “Ask A Toxicologist” program is part of a growing effort by the College to improve public awareness and education regarding the toxicity of medication interactions, occupational chemicals, new drugs of abuse, venoms and plant toxins. The goal of the program is to provide rational, evidence-based answers to common medical toxicology questions – clearly and concisely. Members of the public are encouraged to submit questions through for review by a panel of experts in human poisoning, who will post a consensus opinion written by one expert in the field. There is no charge for this service.
These answers are provided by volunteer medical toxicologists for the purpose of public education, and do not necessarily represent the policies or positions of the American College of Medical Toxicology.
Questions relating to an individual’s health concerns cannot be answered, as the program cannot create or replace a doctor-patient relationship. Additionally, we are unable to provide counsel, advice or interpretation for any legal issue. Questions and answers should be of a general nature, and of interest to a wide population. Not all questions will be able to be addressed.
