What are the treatment options for pesticide food poisoning?

If you suspect that you have pesticide food poisoning you should call a Poison Control Center right away. In the meantime doctors recommend several home treatments. Once you see your doctor, you have to wait for the poison to flush from your system. In severe cases, your doctor may prescribe a medication that makes you vomit in order to purge your system of the pesticide. Rarely, the pesticide can cause damage to your organs and bodily systems, in which case your doctor may prescribe different medications.
