Full Prescribing Info
In clinical studies, administration of single doses of Etoricoxib up to 500 mg and multiple doses up to 150 mg/day for 21 days did not result in significant toxicity. There have been reports of acute overdosage with Etoricoxib, although adverse experiences were not reported in the majority or cases. The most frequently observed adverse experiences were consistent with the safety profile for Etoricoxib (e.g. gastrointestinal events, cardiorenal events).
In the event of overdose, it is reasonable to employ the usual supportive measures, e.g. remove unabsorbed material from the GI tract, employ clinical monitoring, and institute supportive therapy, if required.
Etoricoxib is not dialyzable by hemodialysis; it is not known whether Etoricoxib is dialyzable by peritoneal dialysis.
