Both options are free and confidential. Both options give you expert answers.

If you use  and need additional assistance, don't hesitate to contact Poison Control at 1-800-222-1222 (U.S.). That phone number is routed based on your area code and exchange or your location to the one of the 55 U.S. poison centers that is designated to serve your region.

If you would like to provide feedback or suggestions, please complete our Feedback Survey.

For administrative questions, the  team can be reached at pc@poison.org. Please don't send questions about poison exposures or possible poisonings to that email address. If you have a question about a possible poisoning, use the  tool or call Poison Control (1-800-222-1222 in the U.S.). If you are outside the U.S., use local procedures to reach poison control or go to an emergency room if you have a poison emergency.
