Information Center (APDIC)

Thank you for visiting the web page of the Arkansas Poison and Drug Information Center.  Springtime is here and now is the time everyone can enjoy warmer temperatures outside!  Unfortunately there are a lot of poisoning dangers associated with the warmer temps from outdoor plants in bloom to bees, wasps, poisonous spiders and even snakes lurking outside. Be careful for these poisoning dangers and for sure have the 1-800-222-1222 Poison Hotline number programmed in your cell phone 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 anytime for any administrative questions or 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 !
