Post Swallowed a little Scope Mouthwash

About 2 hrs ago or so i was rinsing my mouth out with some Scope Mouthwash and it quickly fizzed up and kinda caught me off guard, I'm afraid I may have swallowed a little. Should I be worried? I drank about a glass or so of water after the incedent. Sorry for the bad spelling, its 5am and I havent went to bed yet. Are there any symptoms I should be looking for that may suggest me needing medical help?
Only thing is, is now my right side feels like your stomach does when its gassy.
Thanks

Does the bottle give any precausions on it in case of swallowing some? usually they will give suggestions of what to do in case of injesting some or they will say to call poison control. Check out the bottle, see what it says. I would think that if its just a very small amount it most likely won't hurt you, the gassy feeling may be from the water you drank especially if you drank it down in a hurry.

wow, you so do not have anything to worry about. mouthwash definitely won't hurt you.

when i was in high school this girl in one of my classes didn't have time to brush her teeth that morning, so she brought her full bottle of Listerine to band that morning. At first, she just swished it in the girls' bathroom and spat it out, but then she started to swish and swallow. We were like, "Jaret, what the hell are you doing? Don't you know how much alcohol is in mouthwash you idiot?"
Well, she went from swishing first to just plain drinking it down. By the time band was over she had polished of the entire ******* bottle and was drunker than a skunk.

Moral of the story: the only thing swallowing mouthwash (and cough syrup, for that matter) will do to you is get you sloshed from all the alcohol and looking like this http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/dizzy.gif.

You should be fine, it's no big deal. Unless you suddenly feel terrible or have a bad throat, there's nothing to worry about I don't think.
