The child's mother, Stephanie Green, said she called an ambulance after her daughter became very drowsy.

The "horrified, scared, and angry" parent says the police are investigating, and her daughter is now recovering at home.

Tests revealed the drug to be Dextroamphetamine - usually prescribed for the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and narcolepsy.
