Overdose of Tenoxitic in details

infoWhen 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.

Symptoms: Headache, nausea, vomiting, epigastric pain, GI bleeding, rarely diarrhoea, disorientation, excitation, coma, drowsiness, dizziness, tinnitus, fainting, occasionally convulsions. Acute renal failure and liver damage may occur. Management: Symptomatic treatment. Ensure good urine output. Frequent or prolonged convulsions should be treated w/ IV diazepam. May administer an H2-antagonist.
