What If I Overdose on Etopophos?

An intentional overdose is unlikely, as Etopophos is usually given in a healthcare setting by a healthcare provider. However, an overdose can occur and may lead to serious problems. It is important to seek immediate medical attention if you believe you have been given too much.
