Full Prescribing Info
Overdosage
Overdose experience with famciclovir is limited. In the event of an overdose supportive and symptomatic therapy should be given as appropriate. Acute renal failure has been reported rarely in patients with underlying renal disease where the famciclovir dosage has not been appropriately reduced for the level of renal function. Penciclovir, the active metabolite of famciclovir, is dialysable and plasma concentrations are reduced by approximately 75% following four hours of hemodialysis.
