Overdosage
Adult and children nasal drops: Overdosage may occur after nasal or accidental oral administration. The clinical picture following intoxication with imidazol-derivatives may be unclear due to the occurrence of episodes of hyperactivity alternated with episodes of depression of the central nervous system and of the cardiovascular and pulmonary system.
Symptoms of an overdose may be hypertension, tachycardia, palpitations, cardiac arrhythmia, cardiac arrest, sweating, agitation, convulsion, mydriasis, nausea, vomiting, cyanosis, fever, spasms, circulatory collapse, pulmonary oedema, respiratory and psychic disorders, drowsiness, paleness, miosis, decrease in body temperature, bradycardia, shock-like hypotension, apnoea and coma.
In children, in particular, overdose often causes dominating central nervous effects with convulsions and coma, bradycardia, apnoea as well as hypertension possibly followed by hypotension.
Infant nasal drops: Emergency measures, symptoms and antidotes: Overdosage may occur after nasal or accidental oral administration. The clinical picture following intoxication with imidazol-derivatives may be unclear due to the occurrence of episodes of hyperactivity alternated with episodes of depression of the central nervous system and of the cardiovascular and pulmonary system. Symptoms of an overdose may be: palpitations, paleness, miosis, mydriasis, nausea, vomiting, cyanosis, fever, spasms, tachycardia, cardiac arrhythmia, circulatory collapse, cardiac arrest, hypertension, pulmonary oedema, respiratory disorders, psychic disorders, sweating, agitation and convulsion. Futhermore, inhibition of central-nervous functions with drowsiness, decrease in body temperature, bradycardia, shock-like hypotension, apnoea and coma can possibly also develop. In children, in particular, overdose often causes dominating central nervous effects with convulsions and coma, bradycardia, apnoea as well as hypertension possibly followed by hypotension.
Therapeutic measures to be taken after overdosage: In-house intensive-care therapy is indicated in cases of severe overdose. Administration of medicinal charcoal (absorbent), sodium sulfate (laxative) or gastric lavage (in the case of large quantities) should be performed immediately as oxymetazoline may be absorbed rapidly.
A non-selective alpha-blocker can be given as antidote. If required, initiate fever lowering measures, anticonvulsive therapy and oxygen ventilation. Vasopressors are contraindicated.
