Information Center (APDIC)

Thank you for visiting the Arkansas Poison and Drug Information Center (APDIC) webpage!  Winter is upon us and that means now is the time to especially be aware of carbon monoxide dangers. Please be aware that faulty heating systems are often the cause for deadly carbon monoxide poisoning. Also be advised it is never safe to run portable generators inside of a home or trailer home!  If you turn your heating unit on and have any symptoms of dizziness, nausea or just don’t feel well leave the area for some fresh air and immediately and call the Arkansas Poison Center ! Please be sure and  program 1-800-222-1222 into your cell phone speed dial so you can speak with a Certified Specialist in Poison Information wherever you may be without having to look the number up.   The Poison Specialists who answer the phone is either a medical doctor, pharmacist or a registered nurse. The Poison Center has an active public and professional education outreach program. Click on the Contact For Free Materials hot tab to order free poison prevention materials online. You may also email Charlie Stutts at CHStutts@uams.edu anytime for any administrative questions or any public education needs you may have.

The APDIC needs people to call the poison hotline for the latest up to date clinical information regarding any poison exposure or drug interaction question rather than going online and getting information that may or may not be relevant or in some cases actually may be harmful to you or a loved one.  Please share our webpage link with family, friends and co-workers !
