Call poison control. Make sure you have th box handy so you can tell them the ingredients and what the dose and concentration was. Ie, how many mg the tablet was. That will make a difference.

It was only the coating of the pill she had, I looked at the pill and it was just the coating missing. The other pill is in the box

When I had to call poison control when my son decided to eat half of a dishwasher packet, they were very nice. They told me what to look for, and even called back like an hour later to make sure he was doing fine. I'm sure they'll at the very least help put your mind at ease.

Call Poison Control, and they'll tell you exactly how concerned you need to be.
When my now two year old daughter was around 11 months, she got into my mom's Satalopram (Anti depressant) and we called Poison Control. The man who answered informed us that since she had only gotten one in her mouth, it was no big deal and just to watch her for exsessive sleepyness.
Trip to the ER was totally avoided.
However another time when my now 10 year old sister was 4, she managed to spill Nyquel in the bathtub. When my mom and step dad called Poison Control they sent parametics right away.
My sister turned out to be fine because she hadn't drank any of it. The parametics were able to make that determination at our house, and again a trip to the ER was avoided.
Life savers them poison control people are, I'll tell ya.

So glad she's ok. DH once, when he was overtired and out of it (we had just had out daughter and she was a no sleeping colicky newborn), gave our then 4 year old son a triple dose of his seizure medication. I completely freaked out but DH called poison control and they set my mind at ease right away.
