Treatment for an Etopophos Overdose
There are no specific antidotes for an Etopophos
overdose, and treatment will mainly involve close monitoring and supportive care. Supportive care consists of treating the symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose. Options may include:
- Fluid through a needle inserted into a vein (intravenous, or IV, fluids)
- Medications to treat severe nausea and vomiting
- A blood transfusion to treat severe anemia or bleeding
- A granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) medication, such as filgrastim (Neupogen®), to stimulate the bone marrow to make more blood cells.
It is important that you seek prompt medical attention if you believe you may have overdosed on this medication.
