Overdose of Tidilor 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.
Symptoms: Somnolence, tachycardia and headache have been reported with overdoses. A single acute ingestion of 160 mg produced no adverse effects.
Treatment: In the event of overdosage, treatment, which should be started immediately, is symptomatic and supportive.
The patients should be induced to vomit even if emesis has occurred spontaneously. Pharmacologically induced vomiting by the administration of ipecac syrup is a preferred method. However, vomiting should not be induced in patients with impaired consciousness. The action of ipecac is facilitated by physical activity and by the administration of 240-360 mL of water. If emesis does not occur within 15 min, the dose of ipecac should be repeated. Precautions against aspiration must be taken, especially in children.
Following emesis, adsorption of any drugs remaining in the stomach may be attempted by the administration of activated charcoal as a slurry with water. If vomiting is unsuccessful or contraindicated, gastric lavage should be performed. Physiologic saline solution is the lavage solution of choice, particularly in children. In adults, tap water can be used; however, as much as possible, the amount administered should be removed before the next instillation. Saline cathartics draw water into the bowel by osmosis and therefore, may be valuable for their action in rapid dilution of bowel content. Tidilor is not cleared by hemodialysis to any appreciable extent. After emergency treatment, the patient should continue to be medically monitored.
