I worked on a fluoride research study for many years. Toxicity from fluoride takes megadoses over a long period of time. Most fluoride is eliminated through urine and feces, however, some can be stored in bones and organs (at least in the study rats).
Unless you’ve been eating the toothpaste, you probably don’t have anything to worry about. The best bet is to discontinue use of that particular toothpaste and consult your dentist or physician.

wrote: dollar store toothpaste warning
this is a true story it has been confirmed read below:
a news investigation on dollar stores (including dollar tree and
others): they discovered the crest, colgate and other brand name
toothpastes weren’t the same as from drug, and grocery stores, etc.
the toothpastes were manufactured in many other countries and are not
approved by the american dental association (ada). there was even some
from south africa and the fluoride is ten times stronger than what
we’re allowed in the u.s. (prescription strength).
stronger because they
don’t have fluoridated water (like we do). so if
we (or our kids) use it often and occasionally swallow it, we could be
poisoning ourselves. the dollar stores declined to comment and a full
investigation has begun.
so stick to paying full-price at your grocery
store, drug store, and send this e-mail to anyone who
might shop at dollar stores.
this is also true of food products, cake mixes, cereal, etc.
