Full Prescribing Info
Overdosage
A specific overdose for insulin cannot be defined, however, hypoglycaemia may develop over sequential stages if too high doses relative to the patient's requirements are administered: Mild hypoglycaemic episodes can be treated by oral administration of glucose or sugary products. It is therefore recommended that the diabetic patient constantly carries sugar-containing products.
Severe hypoglycaemic episodes, where the patient has become unconscious, can be treated by glucagon (0.5-1 mg) given IM or SC by a trained person, or glucose given IV by a medical professional. Glucose must also be given IV if the patient does not respond to glucagon within 10-15 min. Upon regaining consciousness, administration of oral carbohydrate is recommended for the patient in order to prevent relapse.
