Full Prescribing Info
Overdosage
If massive overdose should occur, active cardiac and respiratory monitoring should be instituted. Frequent blood pressure measurements are essential. Should hypotension occur, cardiovascular support including elevation of the extremities and the judicious administration of fluids should be initiated. If hypotension remains unresponsive to these conservative measures, administration of vasopressors (such as phenylephrine) should be considered. Intravenous calcium gluconate may help to reverse the effects of calcium entry blockade. As Amlodipine Besilate is highly protein bound, hemodialysis is not likely to be of benefit.
