What to do if you swallow a magnet
If the magnet is swallowed in the stomach, if the general condition is good and there are no related symptoms, it can be temporarily observed; if it cannot be discharged, cathartics can be taken orally, or the foreign body can be removed directly under the endoscope.
1. Temporary observation: If there is no adverse reaction after swallowing the magnet, you can temporarily observe it first. If the general condition is good and there are no related symptoms, no special treatment is required. For relatively small magnets, they can generally be discharged by themselves.

3. Endoscopic removal of foreign bodies: For relatively large magnets, if you have abdominal pain after swallowing, or cannot defecate normally, you need to see a doctor in time, and use X-ray examination to find out the specific location of the magnet, and then remove the foreign body through endoscopy.
If symptoms of discomfort appear after inhaling the magnet, it is recommended to see a doctor in time and intervene as soon as possible under the guidance of a professional physician. The above drugs are recommended to be used under the guidance of professional physicians.
