Selzentry Overdose

It is not known what exactly to expect from a Selzentry overdose. The typical side effects are likely to occur, but perhaps more severely. Animal studies have shown that high doses of Selzentry may cause a dangerous irregular heart rhythm called QT prolongation. Treatment for a Selzentry overdose will likely involve "pumping the stomach," administering certain medications, and/or giving supportive care.

Selzentry Overdose: An Overview

Selzentry™ (maraviroc) is a prescription AIDS and HIV medication. It belongs to a class of medications known as entry inhibitors. The effects of a Selzentry overdose will vary, depending on a number of factors, including the Selzentry dosage and whether it was taken with any other medicines, alcohol, food, or street drugs.
 
If you happen to overdose on Selzentry, seek immediate medical attention.
 

Symptoms of a Selzentry Overdose

It is not known what exactly to expect from an overdose of Selzentry. In studies, giving high doses of the drug to dogs and monkeys increased the risk of QT prolongation, a dangerous type of irregular heart rhythm (arrhythmia). However, human studies have not suggested that this is a problem in humans as well.
 
It is reasonable to assume that an overdose with Selzentry would likely cause the usual Selzentry side effects, but perhaps more severely.
 

Treatment for a Selzentry Overdose

It is also not known how to best treat a Selzentry overdose. If the overdose was recent, the healthcare provider may use certain medicines or place a tube into the stomach to "pump the stomach." Dialysis may be helpful in removing the medication from the blood, if necessary. Also, treatment will 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 Selzentry.
