Poison

Someone in my story has their food intentionally poisoned by someone else and I’m wondering how long it would take for the poison to have a noticeable effect on them and also how long it would take for them to die. Have any advice? -Anonymous


Hi! This really depends on the poison and the dosage the person in question uses. Some poison is almost instant, others can take hours to kill. Also different poisons are found in different areas so take into account where your characters are and how available the poison is.

Check these links out and do some further research. Look into the affect on the person poisoned, do they foam at the mouth? Fit? Try to make it as accurate as possible.
