Atropine Sulfate and Nerve Gas

Harking back to my early training in Chemical, Biological Warfare (CBW),
atropine sulfate was administered via injection.  After injection the
person rendering aid was to attach the used syrette to the recipient's
lapel.  Under no circumstances were more than 2 syrettes to be
administered because the 3rd would almost certainly kill the recipient.  
This implies a much larger dose than available in over-the-counter
medications, the other ingredients would probably prove fatal before the
level of atropine was sufficient.
