Full Prescribing Info
Overdosage
No specific information is available on the treatment of overdosage with INVANZ. Intentional overdosing of INVANZ is unlikely. Intravenous administration of INVANZ at a 3 g daily dose for 8 days to healthy adult volunteers did not result in significant toxicity. In clinical studies in adults, inadvertent administration of up to 3 g in a day did not result in clinically important adverse experiences. In pediatric clinical studies, a single IV dose of 40 mg/kg up to a maximum of 2 g did not result in toxicity.
In the event of an overdose, INVANZ should be discontinued and general supportive treatment given until renal elimination takes place.
INVANZ can be removed by hemodialysis; however, no information is available on the use of hemodialysis to treat overdosage.
