Full Prescribing Info
Overdosage
Single oral doses of amlodipine equivalent to 40 mg/kg and 100 mg/kg in mice and rats, respectively, caused deaths. Overdosage might be expected to cause excessive peripheral vasodilation with marked hypotension and possibly a reflex tachycardia.
If massive overdosage occurs, 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 with attention to circulating volume and urine output. Intravenous calcium gluconate may help to reverse the effects of calcium entry blockade. As amlodipine is highly protein bound, hemodialysis is not likely to be of benefit.
