Overdose of Hemostan in details

When a dose is taken in higher dose than the recommended doses, it is called Overdose. Overdose always needs a clinical supervision. Any medicine or drug when consumed in Overdose produces untoward side effects on one or various organs in the body. A medicine is excreted in the kidney or metabolized in the liver most of the times. This process goes without any hurdles when taken in normal dose, but when taken in an overdose, the body is not able to metabolize it or send it out properly which causes the effects of anoverdose.

There are no known cases of intentional overdose with Hemostan Tablets and no subjects in the clinical program took more than 2 times the prescribed amount of Hemostan Tablets in a 24-hour period (>7800 mg/day). However, cases of overdose of Hemostan have been reported. Based on these reports, symptoms of overdose may include gastrointestinal (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea); hypotensive (e.g., orthostatic symptoms); thromboembolic (arterial, venous, embolic); visual impairment; mental status changes; myoclonus; or rash. No specific information is available on the treatment of overdose with Hemostan Tablets. In the event of overdose, employ the usual supportive measures (e.g., clinical monitoring and supportive therapy) as dictated by the patient's clinical status.

Hemostan warnings

Warnings are a mix of Precautions. Contraindications and interactions and serious harmful effects associated with the medicine intake. A diabetic or Hypertensive patient need to be warned about few drug interactions. A known hypersensitivity patient needs to be careful about the reactions or anaphylactic shock. A pregnant woman or a breastfeeding woman should be warned of certain medications. A Hepatitis [liver disease] patient or a cardiac patient should avoid few drugs.

Thromboembolic Risk

Concomitant Use of Hormonal Contraceptives

​Combination hormonal contraceptives are known to increase the risk of venous thromboembolism, as well as arterial thromboses such as stroke and myocardial infarction. Because Hemostan Tablets are antifibrinolytic, the risk of venous thromboembolism, as well as arterial thromboses such as stroke, may increase further when hormonal contraceptives are administered with Hemostan Tablets. This is of particular concern in women who are obese or smoke cigarettes, especially smokers over 35 years of age.

​Women using hormonal contraception were excluded from the clinical trials supporting the safety and efficacy of Hemostan Tablets, and there are no clinical trial data on the risk of thrombotic events with the concomitant use of Hemostan Tablets with hormonal contraceptives. However, there have been US postmarketing reports of venous and arterial thrombotic events in women who have used Hemostan Tablets concomitantly with combination hormonal contraceptives. For this reason, concomitant use of Hemostan with combination hormonal contraceptives is contraindicated..

Factor IX Complex Concentrates or Anti-Inhibitor Coagulant Concentrates

Hemostan Tablets are not recommended for women taking either Factor IX complex concentrates or anti-inhibitor coagulant concentrates because the risk of thrombosis may be increased.

All-Trans Retinoic Acid (Oral Tretinoin)

Exercise caution when prescribing Hemostan Tablets to women with acute promyelocytic leukemia taking all-trans retinoic acid for remission induction because of possible exacerbation of the procoagulant effect of all-trans retinoic acid.

Ocular Effects

Retinal venous and arterial occlusion has been reported in patients using Hemostan. Patients should be instructed to report visual and ocular symptoms promptly. In the event of such symptoms, patients should be instructed to discontinue Hemostan Tablets immediately and should be referred to an ophthalmologist for a complete ophthalmic evaluation, including dilated retinal examination, to exclude the possibility of retinal venous or arterial occlusion.

Severe Allergic Reaction

A case of severe allergic reaction to Hemostan Tablets was reported in the clinical trials, involving a subject who experienced dyspnea, tightening of her throat, and facial flushing that required emergency medical treatment. A case of anaphylactic shock has also been reported in the literature, involving a patient who received an intravenous bolus of Hemostan.

Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

Cerebral edema and cerebral infarction may be caused by use of Hemostan Tablets in women with subarachnoid hemorrhage.

Ligneous Conjunctivitis

Ligneous conjunctivitis has been reported in patients taking Hemostan. The conjunctivitis resolved following cessation of the drug.

What happens if I miss a dose of Hemostan?

When you miss a dose, you should take it as soon as you remember, but you should take care that it should be well spaced from the next dose. You should not take an extra dose at the time of the second dose as it will become a double dose. The double dose can give unwanted side effects, so be careful. In chronic conditions or when you have a serious health issue, if you miss a dose, you should inform your health care provider and ask his suggestion.

Call your doctor for instructions if you miss a dose.
