Prezista™ (darunavir ethanolate) is a prescription AIDS and HIV treatment. It belongs to a group of HIV medications known as protease inhibitors. The effects of a Prezista overdose will vary, depending on a number of factors, including the Prezista dosage and whether it is taken with any other medicines, alcohol, food, or street drugs.
If you happen to overdose on Prezista, seek immediate medical attention.
It is not known what to expect from a Prezista overdose. In studies, high doses of the medication (up to 3200 mg) did not cause any problems. It is reasonable to assume that taking too much Prezista would cause the usual Prezista side effects, but perhaps more severely.
If the Prezista overdose was recent, a healthcare provider may give certain medicines or place a tube into the stomach to "pump the stomach." Treatment will also involve supportive care, which consists of treating the symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose.
It is important that you seek prompt medical attention if you believe that you may have overdosed on Prezista.
