Mushroom Poisoning

If you believe you have been the victim of mushroom poisoning immediately seek medical care. We strongly recommend going to the nearest hospital emergency room. If possible, take the mushrooms you ingested with you so they can be identified by an expert. If you are in the local area we can assist in identifying the mushrooms. You may need to advise medical personnel of this resource for identification assistance, as treatment varies based on toxins ingested.
